Matthews guides West Indies women to ODI series win against Pakistan

KARACHI: Hayley Matthews picked up four wickets to help West Indies women bowl out Pakistan for 116 and win the second ODI by 37 runs here at National Stadium on Thursday. 

Matthews shined with her 4-26 as Pakistani batters gave away an opportunity to chase paltry 154 in 50 overs to equalize the three-ODI series. With this win, West Indies won the series 2-0 with one match to be played on November 14.

Sent into bat first, West Indies suffered under pressure after Pakistani bowlers contained their batters from scoring runs. Deandra Dottin scored the highest 34 runs off 50 balls including four boundaries.
