Sana Mir’s late 21-run knock took the side to 240 in 49.4 overs.

West Indies struggled to chase the 241-run target from the start as the team wobbled at 27 for 3 with three batters failing to provide a good start.

Stafanie Taylor and Chedean Nation put on a 55-run stand on the fourth wicket before the latter went back to the pavilion after scoring 23 runs for West Indies.

Taylor’s resistance came to an end when she fell after scoring 48 off 68 deliveries with five boundaries and one six to her name.

Natasha Mclean scored a late 82-run knock but it was not enough to take her side to a series win.

Diana Baig was the star performer with the ball for Pakistan as she finished with figures of 4 for 34 in her 10 overs.
