Cricket news - Hayley Matthews hundred secures 3-0 whitewash for West Indies Women

The 21-year-old opener hit 7 fours and 9 sixes in total, taking Ireland to task on a flat batting track

A stunning 62-ball 107 not out by Hayley Matthews was at the center of West Indies Women's 3-0 whitewash over Ireland Women at the Pembroke Cricket Club in Dublin. The 21-year-old opener hit 7 fours and 9 sixes in total, taking Ireland to task on a flat batting track, before bowling her two overs for only nine runs.

West Indies totalled 188 for 1 in their 20 overs after light drizzle led to a delayed start. Sophie MacMahon got the wicket of Britney Cooper inside the powerplay, leaving the visitors at 26 for 1 when Chedean Nation joined Matthews in the middle. Nation hit an unbeaten 63 off 46 in an undefeated 162-run stand to which Ireland had no answers. Captain Kim Garth could only bowl three overs, conceding runs at over 10 per over, while Lara Maritz finished with figures of 4-0-41-0.

Chasing a steep target of 189, Ireland lost Gaby Lewis to Stacy-Ann King early in the powerplay but a 94-run stand, as stabilizing as it was to start with, proved to be a nemesis at the end. The partnership between Mary Waldron (55 off 62) and Kim Garth (45 off 46) extended across 15.4 overs and had no sense of momentum about it. King went on to bowl her three overs for only eight runs. Stafanie Taylor picked a couple of wickets in the last over but the game was all but over by then.

Brief Scores: West Indies Women 188/1 in 20 overs (Hayley Matthews 107*, Chedean Nation 63*; Sophie MacMahon 1-36) beat Ireland Women 116/3 in 20 overs ( Mary Waldron 55; Stafanie Taylor 2-19) by 72 runs
