West Indies avoided a shock upset by Thailand as they won their opening Women’s T20 World Cup game in Perth.
Thailand, playing their first match in a major global tournament, struggled to hit boundaries as they posted 78-9.
But the Windies stuttered to 27-3 in reply – which would have been 27-4 had Shemaine Campbelle not successfully reviewed an lbw decision.
Campbelle and captain Stafanie Taylor were then able to see their side home with 20 balls to spare.
