West Indies Women recently suffered a series defeat to Pakistan in the historic three-match ICC One-Day International (ODI) Championship (2-1) in Dubai.

Opting to bat in the series decider at the ICC Academy, the West Indies team was dismissed for 150 in the 48th over, with skipper Stafanie Taylor top-scoring with 52, opener Deandra Dottin getting 28 and Shemaine Campbell, 26.

They were 87 for two at one stage but lost their last eight wickets for 72 runs as left-arm spinner Nashra Sandhu (3-21) and new ball seamer Diana Baig (3-42) ran through the innings with three a three-wicket haul.

In reply, Pakistan overhauled their target in the 48th over, with opener Sidra Ameen top-scoring with 24.

The defeat came on the heels of a 34-run loss at the same venue two days before, after West Indies had convincingly won the series opener by 146 runs at the Dubai International Stadium.

Pakistan pulled back one and leveled the series 1-1 in the second match by beating the West Indies by 34 runs.
