ICC Women's WT20: West Indies down Pakistan by 4 runs

Chennai: Off-spinner Anisa Mohammed's inspired bowling (3/25) helped the West Indies Women edge Pakistan Women by a slender margin of four runs in a World T20 clash here.

The West Indies, during the match on Wednesday, were sent into bat after losing toss and restricted to 103/8.

But in reply, Pakistan could only manage 99/5 in a Group B match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.

Pakistan's innings was dealt a serious blow early on when opener Javeria Khan was struck by a bouncer from Shamilia Connell.

She was taken to a nearby hospital where she underwent a CT scan and is now said to be stable.

After that, Sidra Ameen (20) and Bismah Maroof (22) steadied the innings with a 40-run stand.

But the tide decisively turned towards the West Indies after Anisa landed three quick blows.

Muneeba Ali (15), Sana Mir (18) and Asmavia Iqbal (19) all chipped in to keep Pakistan in the hunt.

They needed 12 runs in the last over but managed only 8.

Earlier, Anam Amin (4 for 16) wrecked the West Indies batting order but captain Stafanie Taylor's responsible knock of 40 runs guided the team to 103/8, which in the end was just enough.
