West Indies Women won the Twenty20 series against Pakistan Women by three matches to one after prevailing in a thrilling finale in Guyana.

In the match itself, Shanel Daley took three for nine off her four overs to restrict the visitors to 72 for nine, with Qanita Jalil top-scoring with 15. Daley then top-scored in West Indies' run chase with 28, but captain Sana Mir ended with three for eleven to ensure that the match went into extra time.

The third match in the series was convincingly won by Pakistan as Javeria Khan (37 from 32 balls) and Bismah Maroof (43 not out) put on 83 for the fifth wicket to chase down the home side's total of 115 for five with 15 balls to spare. Shanel Daley had reduced them to 32 for four on her way to three for 17, but player of the match Maroof remained there until the end.

Earlier, Stafanie Taylor (48 retired hurt from 48) and Britney Cooper (28 from 41) had shared 62 for the second wicket, but Sadia Yousuf (three for 25) bowled well at the death to restrict them to 115 for five.
