Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars win first WT20 INTL

The Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars have defeated the West Indies by four wickets in the first WT20 INTL at North Sydney Oval today.

After being sent in to bat first the West Indies put on 7-113 from their 20 overs which the Australian side chased down with seven balls to spare, finishing 6-117. Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars all-rounder Jess Jonassen was named player-of-the-match for her knock of 46 and figures of 1-27.

Stafanie Taylor (52) and Deandra Dottin (24) anchored the West Indies' innings before they were caught out in the 18th and 12th overs respectively. Victorian leg-spinner Kristen Beams did much of the damage with the ball as she picked up 2-15, while Rene Farrell (1-13), Sarah Coyte (1-17) and Jonassen (1-27) claimed one wicket each.

Jonassen (46) and Captain Meg Lanning (24) contributed the bulk of runs to their side's chase, with their 50-run partnership setting up the win. Vice-captain Alex Blackwell's knock of 11 pushed her career total T20 runs passed 1000, making her only the second Australian women's cricketer to achieve this feat behind Lanning.

Blackwell also recently became the most capped Australian women's cricketer and played her 190th international match today.
