Marizanne Kapp then, at that point joined with Lee (30 off 30) to consistent the boat before the opener was run out as well. Kapp’s excusal before long left them in a spot of trouble at 87/3 in the fifteenth over.
Notwithstanding, Laura Wolvaardt (35 off 21) and Tazmin Brits (14 off 11) joined for a fundamental remain of 48 to help the guests finish on a solid note.
West Indies, as well, started emphatically with 21 for 1 after two overs in their pursuit yet downpour ended the game for over an hour prior to the authorities chose to reassess.
The second T20I will be played on Thursday (September 2) at the Sir Viv Richards Cricket Ground.
