Taylor steers West Indies to series win


Captain Stafanie Taylor’s unbeaten 87 carried West Indies to a 3-1 series win over Pakistan with a six-wicket victory in the fourth and final Women’s ODI. Taylor and former captain Merissa Aguilleira put on 94 for the fourth wicket to steer West Indies in their chase of 183.

West Indies were 86 for 3 when Deandra Dottin departed in the 23rd over for 25. However, Taylor and Aguilleira ensured no further hiccups till the latter fell in the 42nd over with only three runs needed. Taylor hit ten fours in her 107-ball knock while Aguilleira made 37 off 62.

Taylor had sent Pakistan in to bat, and regular strikes from seamer Shamilia Connell (3 for 32) and offspinner Anisa Mohammed (2 for 30) did not allow Pakistan to build momentum. They were down to 107 for 5 in the 37th over before captain Sana Mir (24 off 48) and Asmavia Iqbal (44 off 43) guided them to 182 for 5.
