DUBLIN, Ireland — Hayley Matthews saved the best for the third and final match of the Hanley Energy T20 International series between the West Indies women and Ireland women at the Pembroke Cricket Club in Dublin, scoring her maiden T20 international century to finish the innings on 107 not out as the West Indies women posted 188/1 from their 20 overs.

Hayley took a liking to the Irish bowlers as she smashed them around the ground, bringing up her maiden century in 59 deliveries, which included 7-fours and 9-sixes.

Chedean scored her second T20 half-century, she matched Hayley shot for shot, her 63 not out included 6-fours and 2-sixes.

This three-match T20 International series was used by the West Indies women as preparation and acclimatization for the three-match One Day International series as part of the ICC Women’s Championships and three T20 internationals.
