Anam Amin is down for a quick chat. She says that she tries to bowl as many dot balls as possible and likes to stick to her game plan. Tells that they would like to take it ball-by-ball and chase down the target.
A disappointing batting show by the power-hitters, West Indies Women! They did get off to a decent start, thanks to Deandra Dottin. But she failed to go on till the end. No batter out there found any sort of rhythm. They did get a few runs at the end of the innings which helped put up a target of 90 runs. West Indies Women do have some good spinners as well! This chase is not going to be that easy for Pakistan Women since the pitch is assisting the bowlers.
Pakistani bowlers have justified their skipper's decision to bowl first! It was spin to win for them. The spinners were right on cue. They caused a lot of trouble out there in the middle and did not let any batter settle in. They grabbed their first wicket in the fifth over, and made sure to capitalize on the same, as they took wickets at regular intervals. Nida Dar was the leader of the pack as she picked up four wickets and gave away just 10 runs in her spell. Fatima Sana and Nashra Sandhu were superb as well as they grabbed a wicket each. They have a golden opportunity here to get their first win!
End of a scintillating bowling performance by Pakistan Women! It was absolute carnage out there! After the heavy downpour this morning, it was raining wickets this time! It could have been a lot worse for West Indies Women, but they scored 23 runs off the last two overs and have done some sort of damage control.
Full ball, on off. Aaliyah Alleyne hits it straight back on to the stumps at the non-striker's end. The ball ricochets off the stumps towards extra cover for a single. West Indies Women end with 89/7.
NOT OUT! TWO LEG BYES! This is a low full toss, angling in from middle. Aaliyah Alleyne skips down a bit and looks to flick but she misses and gets hit low on her pad. The batters look to sneak in a leg bye. Fatima Sana gets towards the ball and has a shy at the striker's end but she misses. The fielder backing up at short third man does not stop the ball cleanly and the batters take two leg byes in total. Bismah Maroof though opts for a review for LBW. The Ball Tracker shows that the ball would have missed the leg stump and Pakistan Women lose a review.
FOUR! UP AND OVER! A full ball, outside off. Aaliyah Alleyne lofts it over extra cover and bags a boundary.
NOT OUT! Aaliyah Alleyne survives! This is a length ball, angling in late. Aaliyah Alleyne looks to heave it across the line but she misses.

Is that a run out? There is a throw at the striker's end by the keeper. The replay shows that the batter was just in.
