WI Women Stun White Ferns in Final Round of Warm-up Games

West Indies v New Zealand
The host nation rounded off the warm-up stage of the ICC Women's World Twenty20 2010 on a positive note securing victory against last year's ICC World Twenty20 runners-up New Zealand.

New Zealand posted a competitive score of 153 at Cayon with captain Aimee Watkins leading from the front with an impressive 56 while Nicola Browne also contributed to the score with 30 runs. Watkins managed eight boundaries and one six in her innings before retiring to allow the rest of her side some batting practice before the start of the tournament on Wednesday in St Kitts.

Watkins was also on good form with the ball, taking 3-23 including the key wicket of explosive West Indies batter Deandra Dottin who departed after making 31 off 17 balls.

Merissa Aguilleira's side proceeded to make the target but left it to the very last ball of the match to score the winning runs, fittingly it was the captain who sealed victory for the side.

England v Sri Lanka
Elsewhere, current champions England sealed a final warm-up victory over Sri Lanka at St Paul's Recreational Ground. Charlotte Edwards side made an impressive 160 after 20 overs with the returning Claire Taylor making 70 off 53 balls, an innings that saw her strike eight boundaries and one six.

Sri Lanka's batting line up collapsed to the professionalism of England's bowlers - Danielle Hazell being the pick of the English side taking 3-9.

Pakistan v Australia
Australia saw off Pakistan at St Paul's later in the afternoon - with Alex Blackwell's side having won the toss and electing to bat the side made another good target of 166, Elyse Villani made an impressive 45 off 36 balls while Leah Poulton made 44 and Blackwell 35.

Only two of Sana Mir's batter managed to make it into double figures during the Pakistanis innings, Nain Abidi with 16 and Armaan Khan with 23. Elyse Perry was the pick of Australia's bowlers with 2-13.

India v South Africa
In the morning game at Cayon, India made up for defeat to England yesterday by beating a spiriting South Africa side.

Jhulan Goswami's team posted a target of 141 for the South Africans and Cri-Zelda Brits' side showed an improvement from its previous performance against Sri Lanka the previous day.

Wicketkeeper Tricia Chetty made a spirited 65 but to no avail as the South Africans succumbed to Priyanka Roy (2-18) and Gouher Sultana (2-12).
