All-round Hayley Matthews seals series for West Indies women
Takes two wickets and scores unbeaten century to guide host to eight-wicket win
West Indies Women 183 for 2 (Matthews 100*, Cooper 45) beat Pakistan Women 182 (Sohail 62, Mohammed 3-25, Henry 3-37) by eight wickets
For the second match in a row, Hayley Matthews starred with both bat and ball, helping West Indies Women seal the five-match ODI series against Pakistan with an eight-wicket victory in North Sound.
Matthews first picked up two wickets to help bowl Pakistan out for 182, before scoring an unbeaten 100 - the second century in her ODI career - to complete the chase inside 41 overs.
After being put in to bat, Pakistan looked to be struggling at 56 for 3 in the 16th over but were lifted by a fourth-wicket partnership of 87 runs between Omaima Sohail (62) and Nida Dar (24). However, once Matthews struck to remove Dar in the 35th over, West Indies regained the momentum as Pakistan proceeded to lose their last seven wickets for just 39 runs. Chinelle Henry and stand-in captain Anisa Mohammed were the pick of the bowlers for the hosts, snaring three wickets apiece.
West Indies had little trouble in their reply as Matthews and Kyshona Knight began strongly with a 56-run opening stand. Knight eventually fell for 18, trapped lbw by Anam Amin, but Britney Cooper (45) joined Matthews in a 106-run partnership that all but sealed the win. Matthews ended on 100 not out off 122 balls, with 11 fours.
