Windies women win T20 opener


Share post:

GRENVILLE – West Indies Women drew first blood in their four-match Twenty20 International series against Pakistan, winning a low-scoring, rain-ravaged encounter by one run on Tuesday.
Sent in to bat, the hosts rattled up 90 for eight off 18 overs after rain interrupted their innings at Progress Park.
World-rated opener Stafanie Taylor hit the top score of 26, while Stacy-Ann King scored 16.
Sadia Yousuf and Qanita Jalil both claimed two for 14.
 Chasing a revised target after another weather interruption, Pakistan came up short after requiring seven from the last over.
Nain Abidi got an unbeaten 21 but was unable to see the visitors home as medium-pacer Shemaine Campbelle held her nerve to send down a fantastic last over.
 Earlier, Taylor and Juliana Nero (five) posted 20 for the first wicket.
 Shanel Daley ran herself out for five attempting an impossible run with the score on 28 and after rain forced a stoppage, captain Merissa Aguilleira fell for three.
Wickets tumbled steadily, however, as the Windies were unable to build any serious partnerships. (CMC)
