    Hayley Matthews and Anisa Mohammed produced master-classes with bat and ball respectively, as West Indies women secured an ODI series win over Pakistan.

    First to shine in this, the third of five ODIs, was Mohammed who spun her way to 3 wickets for 25 runs in her allotted 10 overs.

    Her effort helped bowl out Pakistan for just 182 in 49 overs.

    She now has nine wickets in the series with two games to go after figures of 2/31 in the first ODI and 4/27 in the second.

    Then came Matthew’s knock of 100 not out, her second ODI ton, which eased West Indies to 183/2 in 40.1 overs, a win by 8 wickets with 59 ball remaining.

    Matthews, whose century followed scores of 16 and 49 in the last two games, was named Player of the Match.

    West Indies now have an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series with the final two games to be played on July 15th and 18th.

    This series win follow a 3-0 sweep of the T20I series.
