West Indies star Deandra Dottin caught an “absolute” catch to help her team beat England equal to only seven runs in Cricket World Cup clash at Dunedin.

Dottin made a brilliant catch on the backstop to knock England opener Lauren Winfield-Hill out by just 12 points and wowed the commentators with her one-handed levitation effort.

“That’s fascinating! Can’t you see which is better?” Alan Wilkins exclaimed. “Absolutely screaming.”

Former England captain Nasser Hussain later added: “It was unbelievable. It was really unbelievable. If you think about the opportunities that were missed today, Dottin was represents an absolute.”

And Hussain’s comment just summed up why England lost the game, with Heather Knight’s side missing six chances on the pitch.

He also bowled a whopping 23 games as the West Indies won 225-6 in their innings, with Shemaine Campbelle scoring top with 66.

In response, England were knocked out 218 as they suffered a second consecutive defeat to defend the World Cup crown they won in memorable fashion back in 2017.

The loss leaves England with little room for error in their bid to qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament, with only four of the eight teams reaching the semi-finals.

Reflecting on the defeat, captain Knight admitted her team is now “fighting for our lives in this tournament” after their poor start.

“We need to have a knockout mindset right now,” she said. “The next game is very important. So we have to carry the mindset that we need to win every game and that simplifies things.

“And hopefully that will forge people, sharpen people’s minds on what we need to do. Because right now we’re fighting for our lives in this tournament.

“There’s a lot of experience in this group, we’ve lost games before and we know we can’t focus on the losses too much.”
