Pakistan Women vs West Indies Women 2019: A look at the significant stats from the ODI series
After Pakistan women lost the T20I series, very few anticipated a 2-1 scoreline in their favor in the ODI series against West Indies women. And they definitely did not expect that after the first game of the series in which the visiting side thrashed them by a big margin of 146 runs, as the Pakistani team were bundled out for a mere 70 runs chasing a target of 217.
But the hosts came strongly in the second match, winning the contest by 34 runs. Opting to bat first, Pakistan made 240 in 49.4 overs, thanks to a superb 96 from Sidra Ameen and a splendid 81 off 86 from Nida Dar.
The Pakistani bowlers also did a fantastic job, bowling the West Indies women out for 206. Diana Baig claimed 4 for 34, Sana Mir ended with 3 for 21 and Nashra Sandhu took 2 for 38 in their quota of 10 overs each.
In the decider, the Pakistani women's team were even more disciplined and registered a comprehensive win by 4 wickets. After bowling the opponents out for 159, the team chased down the target with 16 balls to spare.
Sidra Ameen was once again the star for the hosts as she made a composed 52.
