Pakistan Women vs West Indies Women:
Pakistan Women have had a torrid time in the Women’s ODI World Cup 2022 while the West Indies have surpassed the expectations. The two teams will compete in the match no. 20 at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Monday, March 21.
Pakistan have lost all four of their matches in the tournament so far, losing to India, Australia, South Africa and Bangladesh. They suffered a heartbreak in the last game against Bangladesh in a close contest, losing by 9 runs. Nashra Sandhu claimed 3 for 41 as they restricted Bangladesh to 234/7. Chasing the target, Nahida Khan and Sidra Ameen put on a 91-run opening stand. Soon a bizarre batting collapse reduced them from 183/2 to 188/7. Sidra Ameen scored a magnificent century but they eventually fell short.
West Indies, on the other hand, are in a pretty good position, having won three out of five games. West Indies are coming off a fantastic nail-biter victory over Bangladesh by 4 runs in the last game on Friday. Batting first, they could only manage 140/9 in 50 overs, with Shemaine Campbelle scoring an unbeaten 53. Hayley Matthews was the star with the ball, picking 4 for 15 in her 10 overs. Afy Fletcher and Stefanie Taylor picked three wickets each as they bowled out Bangladesh for 136. A victory over Pakistan on Monday could put them in a strong position for the semifinals spot.
