West Indies Women 154 for 8 (Nero 29, Dar 3-13) beat Pakistan Women 97 (Mohammed 4-17) by 50 runs (D/L method)
Offspinner Anisa Mohammed capped off a fine series with her third matchwinning effort as West Indies completed an easy win in the fourth and final ODI against Pakistan in Kingstown to seal the series 3-1.
West Indies elected to bat and started solidly with openers Stafanie Taylor and Juliana Nero putting on a 52-run partnership. Left-arm spinner Sadia Yousuf then struck to dismiss both batsmen in quick succession. West Indies struggled to recover from that double blow and slumped from 65 for 2 to 81 for 6. Shaquana Quintyne (23) and Mohammed (25) resisted briefly down the order to push West Indies to 154 for 8 in their 50 overs. Yousuf and Nida Dar were the most successful Pakistan bowlers with three wickets apiece.
Rain during the lunch break meant the start of Pakistan's chase was delayed by 30 minutes and their target was reduced to 148 runs in 45 overs (D/L method). However, their batsmen struggled against some tight bowling from the hosts. Only four managed to reach double figures with opener Javeria Khan top scoring with 20. Mohammed picked up four wickets including the last wicket to fall. She was well supported by Pearl Etienne, Shanel Daley and Taylor, who picked up two wickets apiece, as Pakistan were routed for 97 in just under 42 overs to give West Indies the series win.
West Indies and Pakistan will now play four T20 games with the first one in St Andrew's on September 6.
