West Indies Women 90 for 8 in 18 overs (Taylor 24, Jalil 2-14) beat Pakistan Women 56 for 3 in 11 overs by one run (D/L method)

West Indies Women sneaked home by one run against Pakistan Women in the rain-hit first Twenty20 international in St Andrew's.

The first of four Twenty20s, the game was reduced to 18 overs a side as Pakistan chose to field. West Indies' line-up did not click, opener Stafanie Taylor the top scorer with 24 - she was one of only three batsmen to get into double figures as the hosts managed only 90 for 8. The Pakistan bowlers shared the wickets around. Fast bowler Qanita Jalil was the pick, claiming 2 for 14 in a three-over spell.

In a rain-marred chase, none of the Pakistan batsmen could get going either. The visitors were 56 for 3 in 11 overs, falling one short of the Duckworth/Lewis target.

The second Twenty20 will be played at the same venue on September 7.
