Stafanie Taylor wrote her name in golden words in the history of World Cricket by becoming the second West Indies woman to take a hat-trick in the T20I series. The West Indies captain achieved this remarkable feat in the decider T20I against Pakistan at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.
Taylor finished with brilliant figures of 4-17 by removing Fatima Sana, Diana Baig & Anam Amin to help West Indies Women register a historic series sweep by 3-0 against Pakistan women. The previous hat-trick came for West Indies women was by Anisa Mohammed against the South African women in 2018. Anisa also returned with commendable figures of 3-24 off four overs.
Stafanie Taylor scalped four wickets before smashing 43 runs to aid West Indies women beat Pakistan women by massive six wickets in the final T20I on Sunday. With this win, West Indies women completed a 3-0 series sweep over Pakistan. The hosts emerged victorious by wrapping up Pakistan for 102 within 20 overs. Chasing a target of 103 runs was not a big task for hosts as they chase the total comfortably with five balls to spare & registered a series sweep.
Chasing the target of 103 runs, West Indies got off to a bad start as they lost their opener, Hayley Matthew, right in the second over thanks to a restricted bowling spell by Diana Baig. Diana took an outstanding catch in the second over off Anam Amin’s delivery by taking a sensational diving catch & send Matthews back to the pavilion. Diana followed her effort with an incredible caught & bowled in the next over.
West Indies batter Deandra Dottin looked in good form as she smashed Diana’s bowling for a six & a four in the same over. But Diana caught Dottin off the front foot shot to end her stay at the crease on the second last over. On the last ball of the third over, Diana threw the ball on a good length to take an edge of Kyshona Knight’s bat which was easily caught by Sidra Nawaz.
Nida Dar sent Chedean Nation back to the pavilion & West Indies were soon reduced to 58 runs inside 12 overs. However, an unbeaten 48 runs stand between Stafaine Taylor (43*) & Kycia Knight (24*) helped the hosts to chase down the target easily with five balls in spare.
