Fourth One-Day International, Kingstown

West Indies Women won a rain-affected fourth and final One-Day International against Pakistan Women by 50 runs on the Duckworth/Lewis method to seal a 3-1 series win.

After they were restricted to 154 for eight, Anisa Mohammed took her third four-wicket haul of the series to dismiss Pakistan - who had been set a revised target of 148 to win in 45 overs - for 97.

She returned figures of four for 17, while Pearl Etienne, Shanel Daley and Stafanie Taylor all took two wickets to end Pakistan's run chase in 41.2 overs.

Opener Javeria Khan top scored with 20 and only three other players reached double figures as Mohammed's off-spin accounted for Rabiya Shah (5) and Marina Iqbal (1) as Pakistan slipped to 42 for three early on, then Sana Mir for 12 and finally Qanita Jalil for eight to end the contest.

Earlier, no West Indies could top the score of 29 registered by Juliana Nero but innings of 25 from Taylor, 25 not out from Mohammed and 23 from 15-year-old Shaquana Quintyne helped the West Indies to a competitive total.

Nida Dar did her best to keep Pakistan in it by removing Britney Cooper (4), Merissa Aguilleira (1) and Deandra Dottin (0) for figures of three for 13 while Sadia Yousuf took three for 33 with the scalps of openers Taylor and Nero as well as Daley for 16.

However, their efforts proved to be in vain and they were unable to follow up their win in the third game. The two sides now play four Twenty20 Internationals beginning on 6th September.
