Sarah Glenn took four wickets but England’s hopes of a series whitewash in Malaysia were dashed by rain, with the third ODI abandoned after just 37 overs.
Glenn’s fine spell had swung the game back towards England after an impressive start by the Pakistani openers, and the hosts had fallen from 96/0 to 145/8 when the rain came.
Along with centuries for Danni Wyatt, Tammy Beaumont and Nat Sciver, Glenn’s form has probably been England’s find of the tour. The young Worcestershire leg-spinner has taken eight wickets at just 11.62.
Sussex’s Freya Davies was presented with her ODI cap before the game, becoming the 130th person to represent England Women in ODI cricket. Captain Heather Knight – who made her 100th cap in Thursday’s second ODI – was awarded Player of the Series.
Attention now turns to the T20 series – which gets underway on Tuesday December 17. It represents England’s final three games in the shortest form before selection for February’s ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia.
All three games will be live-streamed on the Pakistan Cricket Board’s YouTube channel.
Sarah Glenn: “I was really happy to get four wickets today, but it’s a shame the rain came and the game had to be abandoned.
“We came back really well with the ball after Pakistan had started on top. We kept it tight and we got our rewards.
“I’ve really enjoyed the three matches and it’s good to come out with a series win. The girls have been really welcoming and I’m looking forward to the T20s.”
