Diana Baig, the opening bowler, was miserly with the bowl as she gave away only 19 runs while removing the openers in quick succession. Anam Amin, Aiman Anwer and Nida Dar were all among wickets as the girls in green kept applying the brakes on West Indies’ run-scoring.

Chasing 125, the openers, Muneeba Ali and Javeria Khan were absolutely phenomenal as they added 58 in just over 7 overs. After that, captain, Bismah Maroof and Nida Dar took Pakistan over the line. The running between the wicket and early calls helped the team construct a proper run-chase.

Pakistan have now got 2 points from their only game in Group B.
