West Indies Seal Fifth Place With Win Over Pakistan

West Indies 135-7 (Taitt 26no, Sana Mir 2-12) beat
Pakistan 131 (Bismah Mahoof 33, Daley 4-29) by three wickets

Women's World Cup Fifth/Sixth Place Play-Off, Sydney

The West Indies finished the 2009 ICC Women's World Cup in fifth place following a three-wicket win over Pakistan in the fifth/sixth play-off at the Drummoyne Oval.

Pakistan were bowled out for 131 before the West Indies needed 46.2 overs and seven wickets to reach their target.

Bismah Mahoof top scored with 33 from the top of the order for Pakistan but with Shanel Daley returning career-best figures of four for 29, they were unable to build any substantial partnerships.

The West Indies were also guilty of not building big stands, but they did just enough to get over the line with enough batters getting starts to see them home.

Pamela Lavine made a patient 26 and Charlene Taitt an unbeaten 26 to see their side home.

The final takes place on Sunday between England and New Zealand. Click here for more information and for details of how you can listen to live coverage of the game.
