Windies storm back to level T20I series
Kingstown, St.Vincent, CMC — West Indies Women leveled the series after an impressive all round performance from Deandra Dottin powered them to a seven wicket win over New Zealand Women in the second T20 International at the Arnos Vale Sports Complex here on Thursday.
Dottin grabbed three wickets to upset New Zealand’s batting moment and returned to smash an unbeaten 40 to lead her side to victory and leveling the three-match series following Tuesday’s crushing defeat.
