On May 17, England Women defeated Pakistan in the second Twenty20 International to clinch the three-match series 2-0. Thanks to the efforts of Maia Bouchier (30), Alice Capsey (31), and Nat Sciver-Brunt (31) the hosts reached 144-6 after electing to bat first. With 2/33 in her four overs, Nida led Pakistan’s bowling attack, with a wicket apiece going to Waheeda Akhtar, Diana Baig, and Fatima Sana.

In the second innings, Pakistan was bowled out for 79 in 15.5 overs, 65 runs short of their total. The Pakistani batting line was severely damaged by England’s spinners, who took three wickets for 11 runs from Sophie Ecclestone, two wickets for four from Capsey, and two wickets for ten from Sarah Glenn. Because of her effectiveness at the bat and in the bowl, Capsey was named player of the match.
