After Knight’s 88, West Indies Women collapse from 171 for 2 to 210 all out
Pakistan Women 211 for 6 (Sohail 61, Selamn 2-34, Matthews 2-46) beatWest Indies Women 210 (Knight 88, Taylor 49, Sana 4-30, Sandhu 4-49) by four wickets
Taylor’s dismissal in the 40th over triggered a collapse as the West Indies went from 171 for 2 to eventually be bowled out for 210 in 49.4 overs. Sana was the pick of the Pakistan bowlers, claiming 4 for 30 – including two maidens – in her eight overs. Left-arm spinner Sandhu took 4 for 49 in 9.4 overs.
Despite losing top-order batters Muneeba Ali and captain Javeria Khan early in the chase, Sidra Ameen and Sohail ensured Pakistan crossed the finish line. Shakira Selman and Mathews picked up two wickets apiece for the West Indies. However, it wasn’t enough to threaten the visitors.
“I think we fell short by about 15 to 20 runs,” Anisa Mohammed, West Indies Women’s vice-captain, told CWI media after the loss.
“At the beginning of the series, we kept saying we wanted to score over 225 that would give them some competition, and we just fell short today. The pitch was a bit damp at the start, so our batters found it a bit hard to score but having Kyshona batting really well and seeing us through, I think just in the middle, coming down to the end we lost too many wickets at crucial times. As bowlers, we weren’t as consistent as we should have been.”
