The West Indies women's team defeated Pakistan in a Super Over tiebreaker to take unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match Twenty20 series

KARACHI, Pakistan — The West Indies women's team defeated Pakistan in a Super Over tiebreaker on Friday to take an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match Twenty20 series.

The Pakistan Cricket Board is staging the series in a bid to showcase its ability to host international matches following a deadly 2009 terrorist attack against the Sri Lanka test team in Lahore.

For the second consecutive day, cricket passed without incident as West Indies fought back to finish 132-6 in reply to Pakistan's 132-4.

The visitors scored a dominant 18-0 in the one-over decider with Deandra Dottin smashing two sixes and a four against off-spinner Sana Mir

Shakera Selman then dismissed Aliya Riaz and Nida Dar as Pakistan was limited to one run in response.

West Indies won the series opener on Thursday by 71 runs and will go for a clean sweep in the finale on Sunday.

West Indies regular captain Stefanie Taylor will join the team in Dubai for the three-match ODI series next week as she didn't come to Pakistan due to security fears.
