Another thriller was played out at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua as New Zealand women levelled the five-match T20I series with a successful last-over chase over West Indies. Fast bowler Hayley Jensen set the tone in the first-half of the innings with sparkling figures of 3 for 23 before Suzie Bates anchored the chase with a half-century. New Zealand stuttered a bit towards the end to give West Indies a sliver of hope, but the pair of Lauren Down and Georgia Plimmer saw the game through with a ball to spare.
Tight start from Fran Jonas and Hayley Jensen with the ball which results in the early wicket of Aaliyah Alleyne. @windiescricket 16/1 (5). Watch play LIVE on @skysportnz LIVE scoring https://t.co/4Zx4Be7bhA #WIvNZ #CricketNation pic.twitter.com/JTgbM4lHQ8
