After comprehensively beating the visitors 3-0 in the T20Is, West Indies women will take on Pakistan in a five-match ODI series. The series will be part of the two teams’ preparations towards the global qualifier for the next year’s Women’s ODI World Cup in New Zealand.
As they finished below top 5 (top 4 sides plus hosts New Zealand) in the ICC Women’s ODI Championship points table, the two sides couldn’t make it through to the quadrennial event directly. However, they still have to chance to claim the coveted crown and the upcoming series offers them a great opportunity to plug holes in their games and be a better version of themselves ahead of the global qualifier.
Besides the T20I series that went by, West Indies women can take confidence from also the fact that they’ve historically enjoyed a wood over their Pakistani rivals, winning 18 and losing just 7 of their previous 25 encounters in the format. At home, the record is even better with West Indies winning 6 and losing 2 of the eight matches.
While Stafanie Taylor and her team will be looking to continue their dominance, the tourists led by Javeria Khan will be hoping for a quick turnaround from demoralising T20I outings and take the fight back to the opposition.
