West Indies Women 175-9 (Aguilleira 71) beat
Pakistan Women 86 (Mohammed 5-7) by 89 runs
Second One-Day International, Kingstown

Anisa Mohammed took five wickets for the second time in three days as the West Indies Women overpowered Pakistan Women to move to an unassailable 2-0 lead in their four-match One-Day International series.

Pakistan were dismissed for 86 with Mohammed returning figures of five for seven to seal an 89-run win after captain Merissa Aguilleira had top scored with 71 in the home side's 175 for nine.

Mohammed, though, who took five for five when the West Indies won the opener by eight wickets, proved too good for Pakistan as she dismissed openers Javeria Khan (21) and Rabiya Shah (18) before also removing Nain Abidi (1), Bismah Maroof (11) and wicket-keeper Batool Fatima (0) as Pakistan's innings was ended in 44 overs as they were completely outclassed.

No other players could reach double figures and four failed to get off the mark, Shanel Daley and Stafanie Taylor both taking two wickets.

Earlier, Aguillera's innings, coming from 102 balls, allied with 42 from Daley, steered the West Indies clear of early danger after they were reduced to 45 for three as Asmavia Iqbal, Sana Mir and Sultana Yousuf each took an early wicket.

Maroof and Yousuf both bagged a brace of wickets but Aguillera, who hit six fours, and Daley, who found the boundary five times, put on a match-turning partnership of 73 in 20 overs.

No other player would go on to reach double figures but with Mohammed in the form of her life, the West Indies had plenty of runs on the board.

The third ODI is on 1st September.
