Pakistan Women drew level in their ICC Women’s Championship series against the visiting Windies with a dominant performance at the ICC Academy in Dubai. 

The Pakistan Women ended up 34-run winners after choosing to bat and scoring 240 on the back of 96 from Sidra Ameen and 81 from Nida Dar. They would then bowl the Windies out for 206 in 49.4 overs.

Windies skipper Stafanie Taylor did not have a good day with the ball, bowling just four overs which cost her 32, while Deandra Dottin, despite her two wickets was a little on the expensive side, going for 55 from her 10 overs. The best of the Windies bowlers was Shakera Selman, who bagged 2-33 from 10 overs. Shamilia Connell took 1-20 from six overs, while Afi Fletcher had 1-51 from her 10 overs.

Anisa Mohammed was also in a little unfamiliar territory, bowling a wicketless seven overs that cost 35 runs.

Those figures came on account of the innings from Ameen, who faced just 121 deliveries for her tally, striking 14 boundaries.

Dar was even more severe on the Windies bowling, racing to her eventual score of 81 from just 86 balls, finding the boundary seven times and going over it twice.

When the Windies batted, they failed to negotiate the bowling of Diana Baig, who ended with figures of 4-34 from 10 overs. Baig was well supported Sana Mir, 3-21, and Nashra Sandhu, 2-38. Dar was also among the wickets, taking 1-23 from 7.4 overs.

Taylor tried to counter the good bowling of the Pakistani women and scored 48 before she was out leg before for 48 from 68 deliveries, while Natasha McLean was in an attacking mood, striking her 82 from 76 deliveries. McLean slammed eight fours and two sixes in her knock but unfortunately, Chadine Nation, with 23, was the next best batter for the Windies women.
