Off-spinner Anisa Mohamed followed her up mesmerizing spell of 5-5 from 10 overs in the first Women’s ODI with another spellbinding performance to spearhead the West Indies to an emphatic 89-run victory against Pakistan in St Vincent yesterday.
The 23-year-old Trinidadian, Mohammed, spun webs around the Pakistani girls to grab 5-7 from 10 overs while Skipper Merissa Aguilleira scored 71 as the host clinched their 10th victory against Pakistan since they first met each other in 2003.
The 25-year-old Aguilleira, also a Trinidadian, stroked six fours from 102 balls in her accomplished 71, her third fifty in 36 ODI matches and got support from Jamaican Shanel Daley who made 42 from 72 balls with five fours, but only Juliana Nero (17) of the other batters reached double figures as West Indies reached 175-9 off their 50 overs.
Mohamed then sliced through the batting line-up and got support from Taylor (2-10 from six overs) and Daley (2-21 from nine) as Pakistan slumped from 50-1 to 86 all out in 44 overs.
The home team’s top batter Stafaine Taylor (2) was removed at 8-1 by Asmavia Iqbal before Nero and Daley staged a recovery by taking the score to 43 when Nero was leg before to Sana Mir.
After Sadia Yousuf removed the dangerous Deandra Dottin for a duck at 45-3, Daley and Aguilleira put together 73 before Bismah Maroof got rid of Daley.
Guyanese teenager Shamaine Campbell fell for a duck, while Tremaine Smartt, the other Guyanese in the team, finished unbeaten on three batting last as Mohammed contributed a valuable nine towards the end of the innings before she was run out.
Javeria Khan (21) and Rabiya Shah (18) added 40 for the first wicket before Mohamed removed both openers to start a dramatic collapse as only Mahroof, who made 11 before she fell to Mohammed, of the other girls reached double figures for the visitors.
Smartt had 0-16 from her six overs with the new ball for the West Indies who battle Pakistan in the third and penultimate ODI of the four-match series tomorrow in St Vincent.
