    White Ferns thump Windies in third ODI

    New Zealand have beaten the West Indies 3-0 in the women's ODI cricket series, completing the whitewash with a thumping 205-run in the third and final match.

    The White Ferns have completed an ODI clean sweep with a comprehensive 205-run win over the West Indies in the third and final match at Hagley Oval in Christchurch.

    Sent in to bat after West Indies skipper Stafanie Taylor won the toss on Sunday, the New Zealanders racked up 310-5 then smothered the Windies run chase with a disciplined bowling performance.

    The West Indies were bowled out for 105 in 34.5 overs, Kiwi allrounder Sophie Devine leading the way with 3-24 off 5.5 overs.

    Named player of the match, and the series, Devine also featured with the bat, coming in at No.5 and seeing New Zealand home with an unbeaten 73.

    The 28-year-old allrounder said it had been particularly pleasing to see the number of players stepping up.

    "We spoke about it before the series, that we wanted to be scoring big scores and making sure everyone was contributing rather than one person getting a big score," Devine said.

    New Zealand skipper Suzie Bates said that while her 151-run partnership with Amy Satterthwaite had set up the game, other players had made invaluable contributions.

    "We've been asking for that all series, to make sure that we finish well when we get in that position.

    "Sophie Devine, in a different role today, showed how classy she is."

    The West Indies struggled from the outset to build partnerships, Taylor disappearing in the 10th over but still managing to top-score with 26.

    Medium pacer Holly Huddleston grabbed 2-19 and pace bowler Hannah Rowe - in for seamer Lea Tahuhu - 2-31.

    Earlier, Bates had top-scored with a 97-ball 89, with plenty of support from Satterthwaite (69), underpinning the intimidating total with their crucial second-wicket stand.

    Anna Peterson and Devine finished the Kiwi innings in style, their unbeaten stand of 63 coming off 43 balls, including 13 off the last over.

    Devine faced 58 balls for her 73, while Peterson contributed a solid 27 off 21.

    The White Ferns won the first ODI last week in Lincoln by one run, backing up at the same venue four days later with a comfortable eight-wicket win.

    The two teams begin a five-match Twenty20 series in Mt Maunganui next Wednesday.
