Matthews Dominates, West Indies Win
Hayley Matthews once again demonstrated her skills with both bat and ball, leading West Indies to a convincing eight-wicket victory over Ireland in the second T20I of the three-match series in Gros Islet. Similar to her outstanding performance in the first game, where she was named Player of the Match for her contributions with both bat and ball, Matthews once again claimed the Player of the Match title. She played a crucial role in restricting Ireland to a modest total of 113 for 7 by picking up 1 wicket for 24 runs. In addition, she showcased her batting prowess by scoring a quickfire 50 off 39 balls, including nine boundaries, which put West Indies on the path to victory.
West Indies Seals Victory
Chinelle Henry’s quickfire 22 off 12 balls and Shabika Gajnabi’s unbeaten 17 off 29 balls sealed the victory for West Indies in just 16.4 overs. This win was in stark contrast to the tense encounter in the first game, where West Indies also chased a similar target of 113.
Matthews Praises Series Victory
Speaking after the match, Matthews expressed her satisfaction with the team’s performance and their ability to secure the T20I series win. She highlighted the team’s goal of winning both series during this tour, following their 2-0 victory in the ODIs.
Ireland's Struggle: Four Run-Outs
The match was marred by Ireland’s struggle with run-outs, as four run-outs severely hampered their batting effort and prevented them from posting a competitive total. Amy Hunter was the top scorer for Ireland with 33 runs off 35 balls, while contributions from Laura Delany, Eimear Richardson, Rebecca Stokell, and Arlene Kelly fell short of making a significant impact.
West Indies Seals Series
With this victory, West Indies have secured the T20I series against Ireland, adding to their success in the ODI series where they emerged victorious with a 2-0 win. We went into the game today with a clear intention to chase down the runs quickly, and we noticed that the wicket was more favorable for batting. Our fielding, including the catches and run-outs we executed, played a crucial role in our victory. I want to commend the entire team for their impressive bowling performance and the fielders for their excellent support.
Ireland's Run-Outs Cause Collapse
It was the run-outs that proved to be the turning point for Ireland after they chose to bat. Gaby Lewis became the first victim of a run-out, and Ireland suffered a collapse from 77 for 3 in the 16th over to 113 for 7 by the end, with three more run-outs contributing to their downfall.
Hunter, Delany Lead Ireland
Amy Hunter performed well for Ireland, scoring 33 runs off 35 balls with four boundaries. Laura Delany contributed with a steady 35-ball 20, and there were valuable cameos towards the end from Eimear Richardson (16 off 15 balls), Rebecca Stokell (15 off 11), and Arlene Kelly (13 off 9).
Matthews Leads Windies Victory
After losing her opening partner Rashada Williams (16 off 20) on the first ball of the seventh over, Hayley Matthews and the team recovered from the setback. Matthews played a crucial role in their successful chase before getting dismissed, and then Chinelle Henry and Shabika Gajnabi ensured a comfortable victory for West Indies. The third and final T20I of the tour will take place on July 8 in Gros Islet, marking the end of the series.
