Dottin steers West Indies to dramatic victory - Cricket News
Deandra Dottin was the star of West Indies's victory.
Deandra Dottin was the West Indies hero as they won the final women’s T20I against England off the final ball at Arundel. 

The big-hitter struck five sixes and three fours in a 34-ball 62 to take her side to the brink of an unlikely three-wicket triumph.

Juliana Nero (27 not out) then held her nerve to score the winning run off the final ball to give West Indies a consolation victory after losing the opening four games of the five-match series.

England did well to take the game to the final ball as the tourists only required 17 off 20 balls when Dottin was bowled by Holly Colvin.

Danielle Wyatt picked up two wickets but no England bowler managed to tame the rampant Dottin, who will be looking to translate her form into the upcoming ICC World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka.

The right-hander was particularly harsh on Arran Brindle, who she took for a four and two sixes off successive balls of her only over.

England made 139-7 from their 20 overs with solid contributions from Wyatt (20 off 15 balls), Sarah Taylor (34 off 30 balls) and Katherine Brunt (35 off 31 balls). 

Danielle Hazell provided a final flourish with 18 not out off eight balls.West Indies’ bowling attack performed competently with Tremayne Smartt (2-27), Shemaine Campbelle (2-30) and Anisa Mohammed (2-23).

Dottin then ensured West Indies finished what had otherwise been a disappointing tour on a high.
