Cricket news - All-round Dottin helps Windies steamroll Pakistan

Dottin, who hit 96 with the bat, returned to take a three-wicket haul.

Deandra Dottin continued to torment Pakistan who plummeted to a massive 146-run loss in the ODI series opener in Dubai. Dottin, who hit 96 with the bat, returned to take a three-fer along with Afy Fletcher as Pakistan crumbled to 70 all out in a chase of 217.

Windies opted to bat first, but lost opener Kycia Knight early to the offspin of Sana Mir in the sixth over, with just 12 runs on the board. Skipper Stafanie Taylor then joined hands with Dottin to repair the early damage and the duo put on 143 runs for the second-wicket partnership. Taylor departed soon after her fifty, while Dottin missed out on a hundred by just four runs - both dismissed by pacer Kainat Imtiaz. Chinelle Henry's quick 18 not out off nine balls in the end provided Windies a 200-plus total.

Pakistan's chase got off to the worst possible start with opener Sidra Ameen falling in the second over, and their top-scorer Nahida retiring hurt soon after - trying to pull a short ball from Dottin, but instead top-edging it on to her helmet. To make matters worse, skipper Javeria Khan was already suffering with cramps. Dottin took out Omaima Sohail off the very next delivery as Nahida left field, following which even Javeria had to be forced off when on 17.

Barring Nahida and Javeria, none of the Pakistan batters managed to score in double-digits. The skipper returned to resume her innings when Pakistan were six-down for just 57 runs on the board, but couldn't avoid the massive collapse. Dottin and Fletcher shared six wickets of the eight between them, running through the middle and lower order to inflict a massive defeat on the hosts and help their team pick up the two Championship points on offer with ease.

Brief scores: Windies 216/5 in 50 overs (Deandra Dottin 96, Stafanie Taylor 58; Kainat Imtiaz 3-49) beat Pakistan 70 in 29.5 overs (Nahida Khan 23, Javeria Khan 21; Deandra Dottin 3-14, Afy Fletcher 3-17) by 146 runs.
