first_imgST GEORGE’S, Grenada (CMC): West Indies Women came from behind to stun Pakistan Women in a nerve-jangling super over and make a clean sweep of their three-match Twenty20 International series here yesterday. Bundled out for a paltry 88 off 19.5 overs, West Indies Women capitalised on a rain break which saw Pakistan Women’s target adjusted to 78 off 17 overs and hit back to restrict the visitors to 77 for seven at the National Stadium to leave scores tied. In the all-important super over, seamer Deandra Dottin snatched two wickets as Pakistan Women scraped together just three runs and West Indies Women survived the loss of Dottin off the first ball to reach their target off the last ball of the over when Kyshona Knight struck a boundary. Sent in, West Indies Women were 63 for four in the 14th over, but lost their last six wickets for 25 runs to be dismissed under 100. Opener Kycia Knight held the innings together with a fine knock of 49 off 48 balls with three fours before she was sixth out with the score on 76 in the 17th over. She was the only player to reach double figures as captain Sana Mir ripped through the innings with her off-spin to claim four for 14, while left-arm spinner Anam Amin supported with two for 10. In reply, Pakistan Women were held up by rain after they had reached seven for one in the fourth over. With an adjusted target on resumption, Pakistan lost Nain Abidi (3) and Ayesha Zafar (5) cheaply to slide to 18 for three in the sixth over as West Indies Women took control. However, Bismah Maroof top-scored with 30 off 37 deliveries and captain Sana Mir supported with 22 from 24 balls in a 39-run fourth wicket stand to bring their side back into the contest. Bismah was bowled by off-spinner Anisa Mohammed in the 14th but Nidar Dar scored a precious 11 off 12 balls in a 19-run, fifth wicket partnership with Mir that left Pakistan Women with eight runs to get off the last over. In a dramatic final over, Mir scrambled a single off the first ball of the over from Dottin and Dar slammed a boundary off the second to put their side on the brink of victory with just three runs required from four balls. But Dottin showed her character, keeping Dar scoreless of the next delivery before having her caught and bowled off the fourth. Sana Mir was run out off the fifth delivery and Sania Khan followed, also via the run out route, off the final ball of the over, as West Indies Women tied the game.

first_imgAction On Addiction has announced that it is to welcome its Patron, HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, on a visit to Hope House in London on 19 February 2013.Nick Barton, Chief Executive of Action on Addiction, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming our Patron, the Duchess of Cambridge, to visit our women’s treatment centre, Hope House.“Many women who experience substance dependence also have a history of difficult relationships, domestic violence, or other compulsive disorders. Hope House offers women a safe, secure and comfortable place to recover and receive a holistic treatment programme, offering additional support to help them come to terms with their dependency and other problems.“The Duchess’ support, in throwing a spotlight on addiction and recovery and helping us to break down the stigma associated with this complex condition, is enormously important. We are grateful for her continued involvement with the charity, and her enthusiasm for understanding more about our clients and staff.”Hope House is a safe, secure and comfortable place for women to recover from substance dependence and receive additional support for other compulsive disorders. It is unique amongst the various Action on Addiction recovery centres in that it is just for women, with a programme designed to allow women to overcome their addictions in a secure, tailored environment.The committed and highly qualified staff includes specialists in addiction as well as personality and eating disorders. They work as a diverse team of counsellors and therapists, providing a structured treatment programme for women with complex needs.Susanne Hakimi, Head of Service for Action on Addiction’s Hope House, said: “The issues associated with women who have become dependent on drugs or alcohol can be complex and sensitive – from self- image to physical abuse. Many women feel more comfortable, and are therefore more likely to have a successful recovery, in a women’s only setting which is why a safe space like Hope House is so important.“During her visit, the Duchess will hear first-hand our female clients’ experiences of their addiction and recovery journeys. She will also have the opportunity to experience what a typical day at Hope House is like and find out why a range of treatments, such as art therapy and information on nutrition, are effective in helping women start to re-build their lives. And the staff and clients at Hope House are very much looking forward to meeting her.”Hope House is a beautiful Grade II listed Georgian house, located in a peaceful corner of South West London, close to Clapham Common. Hope House opened in Maida Vale in 1988 and had only 8 beds. It moved to Clapham Common (into the former Thurston House) in 2009. The refurbished house was launched in 2009 by Trinny Woodall, and now treats up to 23 women at one time.last_img read more
