Deandra Dottin, the only women to have scored an international Twenty20 century, scored an unbeaten 58 off just 42 balls to help carry the West Indies to their first win over New Zealand. In her two previous innings against the White Ferns she had managed just one run off seven balls. Together with Stafanie Taylor she added 82 for the third wicket, a record against New Zealand.
New Zealand's total of 151 for five against South Africa was the highest of the tournament. Sophie Devine top scored with 59, her first Twenty20 fifty. She added 94 for the third wicket with Frankie Mackay, just three runs short of the best for this wicket for the White Ferns.
Nicola Browne's figures of three for 13 off her four overs were both the best and most economical for New Zealand against South Africa.
In their final pool match the White Ferns dismissed Sri Lanka for 89, the fourth lowest score against them in all matches.
By finishing second in their pool New Zealand faced England in their semi-final, the only unbeaten team and tournament favourites. England lived up to their favouritism, restricting the White Ferns to 93 for eight in their twenty overs. Although made to work to reach their target, England did so comfortably in the eighteenth over.
Sara McGlashan became the first White Fern player to reach fifty matches in the game against England, with Suzie Bates (47) and Amy Satterthwaite (45) following her on the list.
Suzie Bates is leading runscorer in all Twenty20's with 949 runs, ahead of Sara McGlashan (794) and the now retired Aimee Watkins (772). Of the current players Amy Satterthwaite is next with 586 runs.
Nicola Browne is the top wicket-taker with 37, ahead of the Wellington trio of Sian Ruck with 32 and Sophie Devine and Lucy Doolan each with 27 wickets.
