West Indies Women 83 for 2 (Dottin 36*) beat Pakistan Women 82 (Abidi 26, Mohammed 5-5) by eight wickets
West Indies' bowlers set up a commanding win for their team in the first one-dayer against Pakistan in Kingstown. Pakistan were bowled out for a paltry 82, and the hosts reached the target in just under 20 overs.
Pakistan were sent in to bat and started poorly, losing opener Javeria Khan with only two runs on the board. Mariam Hasan and captain Nain Abidi steadied the innings with a 30-run second-wicket partnership, but once Hasan was dismissed with the score on 32 by offspinner Anisa Mohammed, the rout began. Mohammed ran through the Pakistan batting to end up with figures of 10-6-5-5 as Pakistan crumbled in just under 41 overs. Only three of their batsmen managed to reach double-figures, while four were dismissed without scoring.
West Indies lost Juliana Nero and Shanel Daley early in the chase but an unbroken 55-run third-wicket partnership between Stafani Taylor and Deandra Dottin carried to them to an easy victory.
The hosts now lead the four-match series 1-0. The second ODI will be played at the same venue on August 30.
