Mohammed bowls WI Women to victory


Share post:

CHENNAI – Off-spinner Anisa Mohammed became the first bowler in history to take 100 Twenty20 International wickets as she spearheaded a brilliant West Indies Women bowling effort to help dispose of Pakistan by four runs in a close Women’s World Twenty20 contest yesterday.

Defending a disappointing 103 for eight off 20 overs following another batting failure, West Indies Women amazingly restricted the Pakistanis to a paltry 99 for five off their 20 overs to make a winning start to their Group B campaign.

Mohammed picked up three for 25, a spell that hurt Pakistan’s momentum as she claimed the only two players to get into the 20s – Bismah Maroof with 22 and opener Sidra Ameen with 20.

She was brilliantly supported by miserly spells from captain Stafanie Taylor, whose four overs cost 16 runs and fellow off-spinner Hayley Matthews, who conceded just 14 runs from her four overs. (CMC)
