Windies make winning start at Women's World T20

The West Indies women's cricket team began the 2018 edition of the ICC World T20 with a 60 run victory over Bangladesh at the Providence Stadium in Guyana on Friday. After being sent into bat, the Caribbean side were restricted to 105-8 from their 20 overs with Kycia Knight top-scoring with 32. Skipper Stafanie Taylor made 29. In reply, Bangladesh were bowled out for 46 inside 15 overs.

This is the lowest score in the history of the Women's World T20. Player of the Match Deandra Dottin led the way with the ball with figures of 5-6 from 3.4 overs. This was only the fourth time in the history of the Women's World T20 that a player was taking a five wicket haul. Shakera Selman took two wickets while Afy Fletcher and skipper Taylor took a wicket each.

With the win, the defending champions have moved to the top of Group "A" with two points. The West Indies will next be in action on Wednesday against South Africa in St Lucia.
