Jess Jonassen and Georgia Wareham shared seven gates as Australia captained the West Indies for a paltry 81 before the fighters hunted the target with 75 balls.
Australia ended their Caribbean tour unbeaten after a comfortable nine-goal victory on Wednesday, September 18, in the final of Twenty20 International at Kensington Oval.
Spinner Jonassen was the bowler’s choice, scoring the best performance of his career with 4/7, while Wareham came on as a three-skap.
Previously, West Indies won the litter and chose bat. Pacer Megan Schutt made his first breakthrough in Australia and sent opener Kyshona Knight just 2 points from the first ball of the third. From there, the Australian spinners Jonassen and Wareham took command and did the most damage.
Wareham fired first the West Indian captain Stafanie Taylor, who fought with the bat in her 100th T20I and managed only 6 of 19 before she was caught by Jonassen.
West Indies made only 32 runs because of the loss of two wickets in the top 10 overs. Jonassen removed Stacy-Ann King on the 12th while Britney Cooper was the next to be fired. Cooper, who scored 35 to 29 and was the only attacker to show some resistance, was held in the lead by Wareham.
From 75/4, the West Indies dropped to 81 – losing their last six wickets for just six runs. Jonassen scored in the 18th over two wickets, which also showed a run-out of Shabika Gajnabi.
Alyssa Healy made the chase look easy as she hit a fast 16-ball 38, six-fours and two-six, before being caught by Karishma Ramharack from Afy Fletcher. Healy was the only wicket that fell; Beth Mooney (24 of 18) and Ellyse Perry (17 of 11) ended the chase in just 7.3 overs.
