GROS-ISLET, St Lucia (CMC):

West Indies Women head coach Vasbert Drakes has credited consistency and an all-round effort for his side's triumph over Pakistan in the four-match one day international series which ended here on Sunday.

The Caribbean side stormed to the top of the ICC Championship tables, alongside superpowers Australia, with a three-one series win over Pakistan at Beausejour Cricket Ground, in St Lucia,

They were led by Player-of-the-Series and Captain, Stafanie Taylor who smashed two unbeaten half-centuries in compiling 261 runs at an average of 130.

"Stafanie, the best player in the world - she dominated the game. She leads from the front. Kyshona and Shamilia also bowled really bowled fast, consistently," said Drakes.

"It was basically a collective effort from everyone. We talk about everyone making a contribution as a group and that was the main theme. Everyone actually contributed".

Fast bowler Shamilia Connell was the pick of the Windies bowlers with three for 32, as her side defeated Pakistan by six wickets in the final match of the series.

The result meant the Windies Women won the four-match series 3-1, sweeping all three ICC Women's Championship matches - the last three in the series - to gain the maximum six points.

It moves them level on the table with leaders Australia on 16.
