ST. JOHN’S, Antigua- The West Indies Women go 2-0 up in the CG Insurance 5-match One Day International Series after defeating Pakistan Women by 8 wickets at the Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua.
Hayley Matthews starred with bat and bowl for West Indies Women, taking 2/17 with the ball then smashing 49 when it was time to open the run-chase.
Matthews told CWI Media “I’m really happy to be able to contribute to a team win. Going out there we had a goal of restricting them for under 180 or so and I think we did a fantastic job. I just wanted to spend some time, obviously, we know it was a low sore we were chasing and as batters, it was probably the best time to get our confidence up and just spend some time at the crease. I fell one short of a half-century but still happy with the performance and the win.”
