WI defeats Pakistan in 2nd T20I on DLS method



Saint John

West Indies Women defeated Pakistan in the second T20I by seven runs on DLS method. The play had to be stopped upon completion of the 18th over with the tourists on 103 for six in their pursuit of 126.

The highlight of the innings was the 42-run partnership between Nida Dar (29 off 36) and Sidra Nawaz (17 off 25) that rescueed Pakistan from 25 for three. Aliya Riaz and Fatima Sana were not out on 17 and eight.

The play paused as West Indies player Chinelle Henry collapsed while fielding at mid-off during fourth over of the Pakistan innings. Later, Chedean Nation also fell ill and both were rushed to a nearby hospital.

Earlier, Pakistan restricted West Indies to 125 for six after Stafaine Taylor opted to bat after winning the toss.

West Indies openers gathered 34 runs upfront from four overs and looked on course to put a strong partnership until Pakistan captain Javeria Khan introduced 19-year-old Fatima Sana into the attack.

The right-arm quick bowled Deandra Dottin (17 off 12) on the first ball. The dismissal played a crucial role in bringing down the hosts scoring rate as it took them nine more overs to post the next 34 runs.—Agencies
