West Indies Women needed a super over to edge out Pakistan Women in their second T20I on Friday and take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.
After the visitors finished with exactly the same total (132) the home side had made, the match needed a super over to decide the winner.
In the super over, the match that had otherwise remained competitive, suddenly became one-side as the Windies plundered Sana Mir for 18 runs.
Needing 19 to win, Pakistan Women could only muster a single runs as both their batters — Aliya Riaz and Nida Dar — faltered under pressure.
