West Indies stunned defending champions England in the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022.
Chasing 226, England suffered the first blow in the ninth over as Deandra Dottin took a sensational catch to dismiss Lauren Winfield-Hill (16).
Standing at gully, Dottin took an incredible one-handed take as she stretched her legs to the left to complete the catch.
Following the departure of Winfield-Hill, England faced a collapse with Heather Knight (5), Natalie Sciver (2), and Amy Elen Jones (1) perishing in quick succession.
Tammy Beaumont amassed 46, but the regular fall of wickets didn’t allow England to break free.
Danielle Wyatt and Sophia Dunkley scored 33 and 38, respectively, keeping the English team in the hunt.
Kate Cross (27) and Sophie Ecclestone (33*) stitched a partnership of 61 runs for the ninth wicket, but Anisa Mohammed’s brilliance in the 48th over helped Windies win the game by seven runs.
Earlier, S Campbell’s 66 runs took the West Indies to 225/6 in the allotted fifty overs.
Hayley Matthews (45) and Chedean Nation (49) also made valuable contributions.
With this win, West Indies are second in the table with four points in two matches.
Australia are leading the standing with a higher NRR (1.061).
