Barbados allrounder Hayley Matthews and Stacy Ann King have been included in a 14-member Windies Women squad to tour Ireland and England from May 21-June 26.

Windies Women won early but Pakistan won when it counted, taking the three-match series 2-1 at the ICC Academy Ground in Dubai on Monday.

Pakistan Women drew level in their ICC Women’s Championship series against the visiting Windies with a dominant performance at the ICC Academy in Dubai. 

Deandra Dottin scored a half-century and took three wickets as Windies Women won the first of three ODIs against Pakistan by 146 runs at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Thursday.

Windies Women’s captain Stafanie Taylor said her team will not be taking Pakistan for granted as the two teams prepare to square off in three ODI matches in Dubai beginning on Thursday morning Jamaica time.

Windies Women ended a three-test tour of Pakistan a losing note as the hosts rebounded to score a 12-run win in Karachi on Sunday.

After winning the toss and choosing to bat, Pakistan Women, led by 53 off 40 balls from Nida Dar, put 150 runs on the board after their 20 overs.  The hosts lost six wickets in the process.

 In response, Windies star all-rounder Deandra Dottin was her usual belligerent self and batted freely to crack 46 from 29 balls but the team was restricted to 138 in their 20 overs.  Things began badly for the regional team when Kycia Knight was dismissed for a duck and Shermaine Campbelle following soon after.

Except for Dottin, the Windies never really got into the run chase and wickets fell at regular intervals.  Anam Amin was Pakistan’s best bowler after claiming figures of 3 for 34.  Pakistan were beaten by 71 runs in the first game but pressed the West Indies all the way in the second, tying the match before going down in the Super Over as Dottin was on point again. 

The two teams now travel to Dubai to play an ODI series that is part of the ICC's qualifiers for the World Cup.

 

Dottin stars for Windies Women again as team claims an unassailable 2-0 lead over Pakistan.

Deandra Dottin won the second T20 international for the Windies Women against Pakistan in a Super Over on Friday after the teams ended in a tie after the regulation 20 overs.

Windies Women’s batsman Deandra Dottin was extremely pleased with a blistering half-ton, which lifted the team to a crushing 71-run win over Pakistan, in Karachi, on Thursday.

In the first of three T20s between the teams, Dottin cracked an unbeaten 90 as the regional team compiled a solid 160 for 2, before dismissing Pakistan for 89. 

The all-rounder got off to a fiery start, gathering 29 of the team’s 41 runs inside the Powerplay.  Dottin’s innings consisted of 8 fours and 4 sixes.

 “I have been working on my innings.  When I assessed the conditions, I found that the pitch was a good batting pitch,” Dottin said after the match.

“It wasn’t my plan to go at them early, but the first ball fell into my area so I just went with it,” she added.

In her time at the crease, Dottin received solid support from Chedean Nation who added an unbeaten 50 as the two put on 109 runs in 11.4 overs.

“It was very good batting with Chedean Nation.  I haven’t batted with her in a while.  It’s good to see her hitting the ball, she batted really well and ran between the wickets really.”

The West Indies women are making their first appearance in Pakistan in 15 years.  The next two matches are on Friday and Sunday, in Karachi.

Deandra Dottin smashed an unbeaten 90 on Thursday to get the Windies Women off to a flying start against Pakistan in their three-match T20 series against Pakistan.

A 13-member West Indies women's squad arrived in Karachi on Wednesday for the first visit to Pakistan by a non-Asian women's team in 15 years. 

West Indies Women will play three T20 Internationals in Pakistan on January 31, February 1 and 3, respectively. However, they will do so without the services of their captain Stafanie Taylor.

As the Windies Women prepare for their tour of Pakistan later this month, Cricket West Indies said they have confirmed the dates for the ODI leg of the tour but are still working out details for the T20 matches.
