India Women registered their maiden T20I series win in the Caribbean Islands as they registered 3rd straight win in the 5-match series against West Indies Women. A collective bowling performance by Indian bowlers on a tricky track didn’t allow the hosts to score even three runs an over.

They finished on 59/9 despite playing full 20 overs but came back to dismiss the Indian openers cheaply. The century stands in first two matches didn’t allow Jemimah Rodrigues to get a chance to bat. However, in the game on Thursday, she finished with an unbeaten 51-ball 40 and was adjudged as the player of the match.


All the statistical highlights from India’s 3rd consecutive win in the T20I series:

A low scoring T20I:

3.24 – The run rate of 3.24 in this match is the 3rd lowest in a T20I game across Men’s and Women’s cricket which lasted 200 deliveries. The 2018 UAE-Thailand Women’s T20I had a run rate of 3.14 as UAE Women bowled out for 50 in 18.1 overs while Thailand Women needed 15.3 to chase.

Runs were scored at 3.15 RR during the 2012 Women’s Asia Cup T20 game between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Batting first, the Bangladesh team bowled out for 62 in 18 overs while Sri Lanka could only manage 60 in 19.4.

An economical spell from Radha:

2/6 – Radha Yadav conceded only six runs in the four overs she bowled including two maidens and claimed two wickets. This is now the 2nd fewest runs conceded in 4 overs in a T20I match (Men/Women) by an Indian. Rumeli Dhar had figures of 4-2-4-2 in the 2009 WT20 match against Sri Lanka. Poonam Yadav also conceded only 8 runs in her four overs during this match.

59 runs in 20 overs:

59/9 – The total of 59/9 by West Indies Women is the 2nd lowest total by any team after batting full 20 overs in a T20I across Men’s and Women’s cricket. (Among major countries) The lowest is 58/9 by Bangladesh against England during the 2014 Women’s WT20.

Bhatia @ 50:

50 – Taniya Bhatia completed 50 dismissals as wicketkeeper in T20Is; the first Indian Women to affect 50 T20I dismissals. Taniya claimed 14 catches and affected 36 stumpings in her 38-match T20I career.

Overall, seven players including Bhatia have completed 50 dismissals as keeper in Women’s T20Is. In Men’s cricket, five players including India’s MS Dhoni have achieved this milestone.

38 – Taniya Bhatia became the quickest to 50 keeping dismissals in T20I format (Men/Women) among the 12 players with this feat as she needed only 38 games. The previous quickest was Pakistan’s Batool Fatima in 45 matches.

Twin failures for openers:

3 – The three runs aggregated by the Indian openers in this match are the fewest by them while chasing in a Women’s T20I game. Overall, the three are the 3rd fewest by the openers of Indian Women in a T20I. They collected two runs in the 2012 Vizag T20I against Australia and also during the Asia Cup T20 final against Pakistan in the same year.
