CWI Media Release: WINDIES Women suffered a 2-1 series defeat to Pakistan in Round 4 of the ICC Women’s Championship, One Day International series at the ICC Academy Ground in Dubai.

Pakistan pulled off a nail-biting win by 4 wickets with 2.4 overs to spare, to finish on 163/6, as they successfully chased the small WINDIES total of 159 all out from 47.3 overs.

The WINDIES Women won the toss and elected to bat first on a very grassy pitch. Kycia Knight once again departed without scoring, as Diana Baig bowled her on the third delivery she faced. Stafanie Taylor joined Deandra Dottin and the pair looked set to take the WINDIES Women to a bug total. Dottin again was in exceptional form stroking the ball confidently. She smashed a huge six straight back over the bowler and onto the flagpole in the distance. However, charging after a non-existent single from the non-striker’s end, she was well short of her ground and runout for 28.

Taylor once again had to rebuild the innings, this time joined by Shemaine Campbelle. The pair were quick between the wickets, taking the singles and twos that Pakistan missed. Campbell end Taylor built a scoring momentum, using the flight of the ball against the Pakistan bowlers. The WINDIES scored the fastest in this match in their opening 15 overs, reaching 75 runs. Campbelle was the first to fall from this partnership, as she needlessly charged down the pitch at Nashra Sandhu and was stumped for 26.
