Maroof, Javeria lead Pakistan past West Indies

Pakistan Women 116 for 5 (Mahroof 43*, Daley 3-17) beat West Indies women 115 for 7 (Taylor 48, Yousuf 3-25) by five wickets

Pakistan Women have given themselves a chance of tying the four-game T20 series against West Indies Women by winning the third game by five wickets with 15 balls to spare. West Indies were asked to bat after Pakistan won the toss and though they lost Juliana Nero for a duck, Stafanie Taylor made sure the innings had momentum with a run-a-ball 48. However, she had to retire hurt with the score on 91 and it was only thanks to Shanel Daley's aggressive cameo at the end that West Indies managed 115.

Daley made an immediate impact with the ball as well, taking two wickets as Pakistan slumped to 32 for 4. However, Javeria Khan and Bishmah Maroof added 83 together, with Javeria the more forceful of the two, making 37 from 32 balls, before she was stumped off Daley's bowling with the scores tied. Maroof remained unbeaten on 43 to see her side home and Pakistan will have a chance to even the series at 2-2 in the final game at Providence on September 11.
