West Indies' spinners worked in tandem to successfully defend 140 and avoid a scare from Bangladesh with a narrow four-run victory in another last-over thriller at the 2022 World Cup, in Mount Maunganui on Friday, March 18. Afy Fletcher's 3 for 29 in the middle overs scuppered the progress of Bangladesh in the paltry chase, on either side of which was Hayley Matthews' excellent figures of 10-1-15-4. Skipper Stafanie Taylor chipped in with three late strikes to deny Bangladesh after West Indies scraped their way to a mediocre 140/9 from their 50 overs.
