Mohammed spins West Indies Women to victory
KINGSTOWN, St Vincent (CMC):
Wily off-spinner Anisa Mohammed again proved a thorn in the side of the touring Pakistanis, as she fired West Indies Women to another comprehensive win with a strong all-round performance last Saturday.
The right-armer finished with four for 17 as Pakistan Women, chasing a revised target of 148 off 45 overs to level the four-match one-day international series, were toppled for a meagre 97 with 22 balls remaining at Arnos Vale.
With the victory, West Indies won the series 3-1 and will now turn their attention to the Twenty20 International leg of the tour beginning in Grenada tomorrow.
Pakistan seemed to be making a first of it at 29 without loss, with openers Javeria Khan (20) and Rabiya Shah (5) going well.
Left-armer Shanel Daley, who claimed two for five, got the breakthrough when she bowled Javeria Khan and Mohammed took her first wicket when she trapped Marina Iqbal lbw for one, at 30 for one in the 14th over.
The floodgates quickly opened as opener Rabiya Shah was stumped off Mohammed and Bismah Maroof cut Daley to backward point to depart for three at 50 for four.
There was to be no recovery as Mohammed, in partnership with fast bowler Pearl Etienne (2-12) and off-spinner Stafanie Taylor (2-12), destroyed the middle and lower order.
For her efforts, Mohammed was named Player-of-the-Match and Player-of-the-Series for her 14 wickets at under four runs apiece.
Earlier, West Indies also struggled to put together an imposing total when they opted to bat first.
Juliana Nero (29) and Taylor (25) put on 52 for the first wicket, but the innings spiralled out of control after off-spinner Nida Dar (3-13) and left-arm spinner Sadia Yousuf (3-33) were introduced.
Struggling at 81 for six, the hosts got 25 not out from Mohammed and 23 from Shaquana Quintyne to get up to 154 for eight.
