Australia Women Seal Series in Style With Another Convincing Win Against West Indies
Alyssa Healy scored an unbeaten half-century after the Australian bowlers had restricted West Indies to just 97/9 as the Southern Starts sealed an easy nine-wicket victory in the second T20I on Tuesday.
Put into bat, West Indies started well as Kyshona Knight and Britney Cooper put on a 30-run partnership but after that it all went downhill quite quickly for the hosts.
All the Australian bowlers were amongst the wickets with Jess Jonassen's 2/19 being the standout performer.
Cooper looked good for her 39 but her run out in the 11th over sparked a collapse. West Indies were reduced to 59/6 from 55/3. Chinelle Henry and Shabika Gajnabi were the only other batters who reached double figures.
Healy and Beth Mooney came out all guns blazing in the chase. The two put together a 44-run stand with Healy doing the maximum damage.
Afy Fletcher did manage to remove Mooney but it was nothing but consolation for the hosts. Healy smashed 10 boundaries and was dominant from the word go.
Meg Lanning remained unbeaten on 22 as Australia cruised through to the target with 5.3 overs to spare.
Australia have remained unbeaten throughout the series and will play the final T20I on Friday.
