Stafanie Taylor’s 73-run innings along with three wickets each from Chinelle Henry and Karishma Ramharek helped West Indies beat Pakistan by two wickets in the second ODI, but not before making a late change.

Chasing a target of 224, when their score was 180 for 3 after 41 overs, it seemed as if the game was going completely West Indies’ way. However, captain Nida Dar’s four wickets brought Pakistan back to life. West Indies lost wickets at regular intervals and reached 219 for 7 in the final over, needing five from six. After this, Fatima Sana gave only two runs in the first five balls which also included the wicket of Afi Fletcher.

But with three runs needed on the last ball, Ramharek got the lead and hit a four to the left of the wicketkeeper, creating confusion in the West Indies camp. With this victory, West Indies have also taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match ODI series.

Sidra Amin and Bismah Maroof, who came to bat, scored fifties, but they did not get much support from the rest of the batting unit and Pakistan was all out for 223 runs in 48.5 overs. Despite this, West Indies gave 30 extra runs (21 wides and nine leg byes) in their innings.

Henry hit a four by dismissing Muniba Ali for 1 run on his third ball. After this, Amin and Maroof took Pakistan forward by adding 80 runs for the second wicket. Amin was out LBW to Fletcher on 50 and once he was out, the hosts failed to build any notable partnership. Maroof held one end and scored his 20th ODI half-century off 91 balls. That was Pakistan’s seventh wicket to fall at the score of 196 in the 42nd second over.

For the West Indies, while Ramharack and Fletcher cut the pace through the middle order, Henry cleaned up the tail. Pakistan reached 223 runs thanks to wicketkeeper-batsman Naziha Alvi’s inning of 25 runs in 28 balls.

Chasing the target, while West Indies lost opener Rashada Williams relatively early, Hayley Mathews led the innings with 44 runs. Once she fell, it was Shamyn Campbell and Taylor who carried the innings. Both of them added 88 runs in 106 balls for the third wicket to complete their half-century. Campbell achieved the historic feat in 70 balls to reach his debut, while Taylor achieved the feat three balls later in 61 balls.

Even after the fall of Campbell’s wicket, Taylor continued his innings but Dar silenced the visitors with a flurry of wickets. Sadia Iqbal dismissed Taylor in the 47th over while Dar took two wickets in the 49th over to slightly tilt the balance of the match in favor of Pakistan. But Ramharrack kept him calm when it mattered most.
