Pakistan 106 for 2 (Sajjida Shah 51*) beat West Indies 105 for 8 (Jack 46, Mir 3-17, Yousaf 3-30) by eight wickets
Pakistan rounded off their preparations for the ICC Women's Twenty20 with a big win against West Indies, one that denied the home side their second successive series sweep. Pakistan kept West Indies to just 105 and then knocked off the runs with eight wickets remaining in St Kitts.
It was a disappointing card from a side that had dominated Sri Lanka over three Twenty20s and Pakistan in the first two. Corel Jack top-scored with 46 after Pakistan opted to field on a hard surface and no other batsman crossed 20. Pakistan captain, Sana Mir, led an accomplished bowling performance with 3 for 17 from three overs. In reply, the opener Sajjida Shah then anchored Pakistan to victory with five fours in an unbeaten 51 from 54 balls.
The Women's World Twenty20 begins on May 5.
