West Indies Women clinched the three-match Twenty20 series (2-1) against Pakistan in the final Twenty20 at the Southend Club Cricket Stadium a week ago.

A blistering half-century from Nida Dar and a three-wicket haul by left-arm spinner Anmam Amin ensured that Pakistan avoided a whitewash in the final game.

Dar’s knock of 53 came from 40 balls propelled Pakistan to their highest total of the three-match series, finishing on 150 for six from their 20 overs.

The West Indies entered the match already assured of clinching the series after winning the first two matches.

Unlike the previous matches, West Indies batters never fired, with only Deandra Dottin and Natasha McClean putting up any form for of resistance.

Their run chase got off to a horrible start with Kyrica Knight being stumped off the second ball of the innings bowled by Amin, without a run on the board.

However, once Amin got rid of Dottin to make it 68 for 3, the rest of the batters failed, as they lost their final four wickets for 21 runs.

Amin was the pick of the bowlers, finishing with 3 for 34, while Sana Mir supported with 2 for 21.

In the first match, Dottin narrowly missed out on a record-breaking Twenty20 International century as West Indies Women launched their historic three-match tour with a convincing 71-run victory.

In the second match West Indies won in a Super Over.

West Indies Women was playing for the first time on Pakistan soil in 15 years.
