West Indies 105 for 4 (Dottin 36*) beat Pakistan 104 for 6 (Mir 30, Dottin 3-13) by 6 wickets
Teenager Deandra Dottin reprised her heroics with the bat from the first match and added a telling contribution with the ball to steer West Indies women to an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match Twenty20 series against Pakistan.
Pakistan's batsmen looked set for a strong finish when they reached 71 for 3 at the 15-over mark, after electing to bat, but Dottin ruined their plans with a sharp spell of 3 for 13.
Openers Sajjida Shah and Nain Abidi contributed 20s, while captain Sana Mir top scored with 30, but the late wickets pegged Pakistan back to 104 for 6. Shanel Daley and Anisa Mohammad joined in the stifling act, returning identical figures of 1 for 12 off 4 overs.
The hosts' chase was in trouble at 58 for 4 after 14.2 overs when Dottin came to the crease. She kept her cool and turned the match around with an unbroken stand of 47 in 32 balls with Daley. Dottin smashed two fours and three sixes in her timely 36.
The win was the fifth on the trot for the West Indies women, following the clean sweep of Sri Lanka in the preceding three-match series, putting the hosts in a confident frame of mind ahead of the Women's World Twenty20.
