After suffering a 146-run defeat in the first ODI, Pakistan Women made a brilliant comeback in the 2nd ODI to level the 3-match series against the Windies Women. In the 2nd ODI, the Pakistan Women put on a much better batting effort thanks to Sidra Ameen’s 96 and Nida Dar’s 81. The duo accounted for 177 runs while the remaining players collectively scored 63 in Pakistan’s total of 240/10.
Diana Baig, playing her first game of the series, broke through the top order while Sana Mir chipped in with wickets at crucial moments. Natasha McLean’s lone fight with a 76-ball 82 and Stafanie Taylor’s 48 were only decent contributions for the visitors in the chase. The series decider could be a cracker of a match with all the key Pakistan players recovering from fitness woes.
The third and final game of the 3-match ODI series between Pakistan Women and Windies Women will be hosted by the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
The match starts at 9:00 AM local time (5:00 AM GMT) (10:30 AM IST).
The streaming of this match is available on Pakistan Cricket Board’s YouTube Channel.

Bench – Karishma Ramharack, Merissa Aguilleira, Rashada Williams.
Bismah Maroof recovered from a hit on face making her miss the first ODI but recovered for the 2nd.
Javeria Khan suffered cramps in the first ODI but featured in the second game.
Nahida Khan featured in the 2nd ODI even after been stretched off during the first due to a hit on the helmet.
Aiman Anwer didn’t play the 2nd ODI due to a hamstring injury since suffered in the first match.
Anisa Mohammed has a brilliant record in the ODI format against Pakistan. The off-spinner has 36 wickets from 16 games at an average of 9.08 with four 5-wicket hauls against them. However, she failed to pick up a wicket in the last four games in this tour. Anisa didn’t bowl in the first ODI while she went wicketless in the 2nd game. She will be crucial for Windies’ chances in the series decider.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Stafanie Taylor and Deandra Dottin will obviously be the main choices as captain and vice-captain. Other than these two, the likes of Nida Dar, Afy Fletcher and Sana Mir can be considered for the multiplier roles.
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for Fantasy Cricket:
Keeper – Kycia Knight
Batters – Natasha McLean, Sidra Ameen, Bismah Maroof
All-Rounders – Deandra Dottin (VC), Stafanie Taylor (C), Nida Dar
Bowlers – Shamilia Connell, Sana Mir, Afy Fletcher, Diana Baig
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for Fantasy Cricket:
Keeper – Sadra Nawaz
Batters – Natasha McLean, Sidra Ameen, Bismah Maroof, Javeria Khan
All-Rounders – Deandra Dottin (C), Stafanie Taylor, Nida Dar (VC)
Bowlers – Shamilia Connell, Shakera Selman, Diana Baig
Given the performances in the first two games, picking both Bismah Maroof and Javeria Khan will be risky. Both the senior batters of Pakistan team are valued at 10 credits.
Windies Women are expected to make a comeback and seal the ODI series against the Pakistan team.
