Commentary

Right! That's about it from this encounter. India will take on West Indies on Monday at the very same venue. Do remember to join us for that. Cheers!!

Masabata Klaas | Player of the Match: Want to thank the fans for coming out and supporting us. Always trying to enjoy the occasion and it's a nice feeling. I will do what I know best. Very pleased with the performance today.

Sune Luus: Very happy with team's performance today. We spoke about a lot after the first game and just focussed on the basics today. East London has a lot of supporters and nice to see the locals coming out and supporting us.

Hayley Matthews: Lot of positives to take from this game, focus on areas we could improve as well. Trying to get used to the conditions and do well for the rest of the series. We need to build partnerships and try to build a bigger innings.

17:54 local, 15:54 GMT, 21:24 IST: West Indies got off to a decent start, but once Cooper got out the wickets fell in clusters and never recovered since. Masabata Klass was the pick of the bowlers with a career-best four-fer and she bowled some excellent mix of slower ball variations while at it.
