An unbroken eighth-wicket stand of 44 between Kyshona Knight and Anisa Mohammed helped West Indies level the series at 1-1 against Pakistan.

Left-arm spinner Anam Amin's four strikes had reduced the hosts to 106 for 7 in the 34th over. Captain Stafanie Taylor had contributed 49 before becoming Amin's second victim.

Player-of-the-Match Anisa, however, backed up her 2 for 24 with an unbeaten 19 off 42 balls, while Kyshona Knight made 28 off 65 as West Indies reached the target of 150 in 46.5 overs.

Earlier, Mohammed and Hayley Matthews' offspin had fetched two wickets apiece in a disciplined bowling effort after West Indies chose to field. Taylor chipped in with an economical 1 for 25 in ten overs as well. Nain Abidi made 48 and Bismah Maroof scored 28, but the innings failed to kick on after the latter retired hurt on 81 for 2 in the 24th over. Pakistan were eventually dismissed for 149 in 46.1 overs.
