Galle, September 28, 2012, PTI: 0:27 IST
The West Indies suffered a dramatic collapse to lose to Sri Lanka by five runs via the Duckworth-Lewis method in the Women’s World Twenty20 here on Friday.

In the day’s other match, Sophie Devine sizzled with both bat and ball to help New Zealand defeat South Africa by 22 runs. Devine scored 59 off 46 balls and then picked up two wickets.

Chasing a revised target of 48 in a rain-affected match, the West Indies were restricted to 42 for eight in as many overs at the Galle International Stadium.

Needing 12 off 12 with six wickets in hand, Chamani Seneviratna had Juliana Nero stumped off the second ball of the penultimate over.

Two more wickets fell in the same over and the Sri Lankans were back in the game. In the last over another run-out, the fourth of the West Indies innings, sealed the match in Lanka’s favour.

Brief scores: Sri Lanka: 50/3 in 10.3 overs bt West Indies: 42/8 in 8 overs (Chamani Seneviratana 2-4, Inoka Ranaweera 2-9) (by 5 runs via D/L method).

New Zealand: 151/5 in 20 overs (Sophie Devine 59, Frances Mackay 49; Susan Benade 2-15) bt South Africa: 129/9 in 20 overs (Alison Hodgkinson 31, Dane van Niekerk 34 n.o,; Nicola Browne 3-13).
