West Indies Women cricket sweep ODI series against Pakistan Women

West Indies Women defeated Pakistan Women by six wickets to sweep the One Day International (ODI) Cricket Series 3-0 on Sunday, November 14.

Captain, Stafanie Taylor’s 117-ball 102 not out took West Indies 226 for 4. Chasing 226 in the third ODI in Karachi, Taylor and Chedean Nation put together a 128-run fifth-wicket stand as West Indies romped to a six-wicket win.

Put in to bat, Pakistan was off to a good start, with openers Muneeba Ali and Ayesha Zafar stitching together a 49-run stand. Aaliyah Alleyne drew first blood, dismissing Zafar for 13. Muneeba, though, stuck around, bringing up her half-century off 75 balls.

Pakistan then lost three wickets in the space of 16 balls, following which Iram Javed and Aliya Riaz resurrected the innings with a 44-run stand for the fifth wicket. Riaz hit an unbeaten 57-ball 44 to take Pakistan to 225.

In reply, West Indies got off to a shaky start, Anam Amin and Diana Baig reducing them to 15 for 3. But Taylor and Hayley Matthews lifted them with an 83-run stand-off of 104 balls. Sadia Iqbal provided the breakthrough by removing Matthews for 49, but Taylor kept the runs flowing, bringing up her half-century off 72 balls.

Final scores, Pakistan women 225 for 7, West Indies women 226 for 4.

Taylor, who became only the third woman in history to score 5,000 ODI career runs.
