Veteran all-rounder, Deandra Dottin, was the only West Indies player named to the all-star team for the just-concluded ICC Women’s Twenty20 World Cup.
While the hosts under-performed in failing to defend their title, Dottin stood out especially with the ball as she claimed the joint most wickets with 10, along with Australian seamer, Megan Schutt, and teammate, off-spinner Ashleigh Gardner.
The 27-year-old, a sharp medium-pacer, produced career-best figures of five for five against Bangladesh as West Indies got their campaign up and running with a convincing 60-run victory in Guyana.
With the bat, the right-hander scored 121 runs – the most by a West Indies player – which was good enough to place her in the top 10 for the tournament.
Meanwhile, Australia, brushed aside England by eight wickets on Saturday night to wrap up their fourth ICC Women’s Twenty20 title and make amends for their failure two years ago.
