    Bismah Maroof (Pakistan Captain): We wanted this win in order to get the momentum going, very pleased with the effort. We got wickets at crucial time. Diana got us early wickets and that helped us to restrict them below 125. Our openers played really well and we as a team are smart cricketers. Nida stayed with me, rotated the strike well and kept the scoreboard ticking. We are looking forward to do well in the remaining matches.

    Stafanie Taylor (West Indies Captain): With the type of batters we have we should be scoring more than 150 and we haven't been doing that. The batters need to show hunger in the first 6 overs and need to rotate the strike. That's where we've been lacking. But we have been losing early wickets, that's where we have struggled. The bowling has been terrific. The pacers have been really good, but not to take anything away from Pakistan. There's always room for improvement, we keep saying that. We need to come out and show our prowess in the next match.

    Javeria Khan (Player of the Match): I am really surprised with this award, I think Diana deserved it more than me. But it was a team effort. We have worked on our running between the wickets, our fielding and that paid off today. Initially it wasn't coming onto the bat nicely, but the wicket became better gradually. I thought of taking charge early on so that the middle order batsmen could take their time. I'd like to share this award with Diana.

    Shakera Selman returns to the attack. Dar has a swing at the 1st delivery but misses as the ball hits her on the thigh pad. She then fails to find the gap on the 2nd delivery. DROPPED! Dar goes for the slog-sweep but doesn’t get enough power on it as the fielder at midwicket gets behind the ball but it pops out of her hands. Maroof drives the 4th ball to cover and there’s a run out opportunity at the non-striker’s end but the fielder misses with the throw. Maroof dabs the 5th ball past short fine leg and they run hard for 2 runs. Maroof puts in a good dive to get back into the crease in time. She flicks the last ball straight to midwicket. Just 3 runs needed from 12 balls now.

    Pakistan 122/2 after 18 overs.

    Shamilia Connell returns to the attack. Dar flicks the 1st ball to long-on for a single. Maroof taps the 2nd ball with soft hands for a quick single. Dar drives the 3rd ball through cover and rotates strike. Maroof backs away and flicks the 4th ball through square leg for 2 runs. The next delivery is a high full toss and Maroof misses as they pick up a bye. The umpire signals for a no-ball and free-hit. Dar heaves at the free-hit delivery and gets an inside edge which escapes to fine leg for FOUR. She drives the last ball to sweeper cover for a single. 12 runs off the over. Just 6 needed from 18 balls now.
