Windies skipper Stafanie Taylor was satisfied with the team’s batting effort after recording a comfortable 83-run victory over Sri Lanka on Friday.
After being accused of going missing earlier in the tournament, following subpar performances against Bangladesh and South Africa, the Windies top order got their act together in time to punish the Sri Lanka bowlers.
Led by a belligerent 62 from opener Hayley Matthews and 49 from Deandra Dottin, the Windies put on 94 for the first wicket.
Taylor, who came to the crease when the partnership was broken after Matthews’ dismissal, then added 41 from 25 balls to help the team post an unassailable 187.
In response, the Sri Lankan’s anchored by 44 from their captain Chamari Atapattu, were helped by some sloppiness in the field but still fell far short of making the match competitive after being dismissed for 104.
“We came to the party with our batting, but I can’t say the same for the fielding.  We looked a bit ragged there,” Taylor said.
“We said that we just needed to apply ourselves out there, spent some time at the crease.  The reason for winning the toss and batting was that I found that the pitch might be keeping a bit low,” she added. (SportsMax)
