Windies, Aus in Women's CWC final



The West Indies beat mighty Australia by eight runs on Wednesday to set up an intriguing title clash against the same opponents in the women's World Cup in India.

The West Indies and Australia topped the Super Sixes table with eight points each, two more than defending champions England, who beat New Zealand by 15 runs in their last match in Mumbai.

After being shot out for 164 the West Indies hit back to dismiss Australia for 156 in a dramatic finish, with left-arm seamer Shanel Daley claiming 3-22 in 9.2 overs.

Off-spinner Stafanie Taylor took 2-26 as the Australian women collapsed spectacularly with Alex Blackwell playing a lone hand of 45.

The first-ever appearance in the final for the West Indies was set up by Deandra Dottin, who smashed one six and 10 fours in her 67-ball 60, lifting her team to a challenging total.

It was Australia's first defeat in the tournament, but the five-time champions have a chance to avenge the loss when they clash again with the West Indies in Sunday's day-night final at the Brabourne stadium in Mumbai.

England rattled up 266-6 against New Zealand, who were restricted to 251-9, despite a superb 103 from Amy Satterthwaite and 79 by skipper Suzie Bates.

For England, Charlotte Edwards scored 54 and Sarah Taylor made 88.

England and New Zealand will meet again in the playoff for third and fourth positions in Mumbai on Friday.

In another match in Cuttack, South Africa registered their first win in the Super Sixes round when they beat Sri Lanka by 110 runs. Both teams finished with two points each.

Sri Lanka, chasing a 228-run target, were bowled out for 117 in 36.4 overs.
