Kyshona Knight made a quality maiden half-century for West Indies Women but they fell to Pakistan Women for the first time in their ongoing CG Insurance One-Day International Series, on Thursday.
Left-hander Knight struck a career-best 88 off 140 balls as West Indies recovered from 29-2 in the eighth over to reach 210 all out with two balls remaining in the innings. Captain Stafanie Taylor made 49 off 77 balls but was the only other batsman to reach 20 as CG Insurance Player-of-the-Match Fatima Sana (4-30) and left-arm spinner Nashra Sandhu (4-49) bowled well for the visitors.
Knight rallied the innings, striking eight fours and a six in a 142-run, third wicket partnership with Taylor who counted five fours. Taylor’s dismissal, caught at the wicket sweeping at Nashra in the 40th over, sparked a collapse as the last eight wickets went down for only 39 runs.

In the second half, asked to chase a competitive 211, Pakistan reached their target with eight balls to spare, with Omaima Sohail top-scoring with 61 off 89 balls and Sidra Ameen getting 41 off 87 balls.
Sohail hit four fours in an 81-run, third wicket stand with Sidra Ameen and then Sohail posted a further 33 for the fourth wicket with Kainat Imtiaz (16) before Nida Dar hit a breezy unbeaten 29 off 34 balls with three fours and see the visitors home.
West Indies lead the five-match series 3-1 with the final match left to be played on Sunday at the same venue.
