West Indies beat Pakistan by 19 runs (DLS) to record their second win in the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017.

Chasing 245 in 38 overs, Pakistan lost two quick wickets after an 80-run stand for the second wicket between Nahida Khan and Javeria Khan. They were behind by 19 runs on DLS par score when rain stopped play. With this, Pakistan continued to remain winless in the tournament.

Earlier, after being asked to bat, West Indies got off to a worst possible start as they lost both openers Hayley Matthews and Kycia A Knight cheaply. Stafanie Taylor and Chedean Nation then stitched together an 87-run stand before Nashra Sandhu got rid of the latter for 35(68).

Deandra Dottin and Stafanie combined well as the former’s unbeaten 104 and skipper’s 90 off 107 balls propelled West Indies to 285/4 in their allotted 50 overs.
