WI beat SA in first T20

Deandre Dottin celebrated her 50th T20 for the West Indies by leading them to a comfortable win over the Proteas in the first of two T20s in two days.

South Africa won the toss and chose to bat, but their innings never really got off the ground starting with the early run out of Thandile Cordes. The only real partnership of note was between Mignon du Preez (39) and Cri-Zelda Brits (36), but spinners Daley, Taylor and Quintyne each took two wickets to restrict West Indies to 113 for 7.

West Indies lost Taylor and Campbelle early in their reply, but this just brought Dottin to the crease, who smashed 48 not out off just 30 balls, including three 6s, and, with the steady batting of Kycia Knight (33no), lead West Indies over the line with 10 balls and eight wickets to spare.

The second game in the series is later today. ESPN livescore will be here
