Kiwis edge Windies in opening T20i

Kiwis edge Windies in opening T20i

Haley Matthews and Stafanie Taylor cracked half-centuries but the Windies women fell just short in the 1st T20i against New Zealand.

Chasing a respectable 168, Matthews hit the gas early, smacking four boundaries in the 2nd over, however her partner Merissa Aguilleira struggled, eventually falling for 5 from 14 balls.

Matthews departed a couple overs after that but Taylor picked up where her teenage counterpart left off.

Wickets fell around her though and the skipper was left stranded on 51 from 31 balls with the Windies 8 runs short by the end of the 20 overs.

Earlier, wicket-keeper batsman Katey Martin produced a Player of the Match performance, making 54 to take the Kiwis to 167/6.

Schedule:
Wednesday 14th – 1st T20i (NZ won by 8 runs)
Friday 16th – 2nd T20i
Tuesday 20th – 3rd T20i
Thursday 22nd – 4th T20i
Sunday 25th – 5th T20i
