Windies Women win in Pakistan
KARACHI, Pakistan (AP): The Windies Women's first cricket match in Pakistan was a 71-run victory that passed without incident yesterday.
Pakistan have staged only short limited-overs series against Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka, a World XI, and the Windies since a deadly terrorist attack in March 2009 against the Sri Lanka test team in Lahore. A women's team from Bangladesh also toured Pakistan in October 2015.
The Windies women, making their first appearance in Pakistan in 15 years, agreed to play three Twenty20s there before both teams fly to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, for three one-day internationals.
Opener Deandra Dottin top-scored for the Windies with 90 in a total of 160-2, then Pakistan, playing their 100th T20, were bowled out for 89 in 18 overs. Medium fast bowlers Shamilia Connell (3-29) and Shakera Selman (2-8) led the way.
The next T20s are today and Sunday, all in Karachi.
Windies captain Stefanie Taylor will join the team in Dubai as she did not come to Pakistan because of security fears.
