Avocados: Spanish company launches low-fat variety
Given how popular avocados are around the world, it would make sense if you thought the fruit could never be improved. According to Fepex imports rose from 34,000 tonnes in 2012 to 73,000 tonnes in 2016.
Dilani Manodara, the wicket-keeper, held one end up, providing some stability to the innings, but it was always a lost cause with wickets falling at the other end.
Matthews was the pick of the bowlers with 3 for 18, while Fletcher had 3 for 42 and Taylor 3 for 24.
Chasing 137, Windies started off on the wrong foot, losing Kycia Knight in the first over courtesy a run-out with just two runs on the board, which soon became 7 for 2 in the fifth over with the fall of Taylor. Matthews (22) and Chedean Nation (24) helped their overcome the early blow before the former had to retire hurt.
