bad as some poor fielding added to the woes. India were off to a flyer as the openers Mandhana and Shafali Verma gave them a rollicking start. They did lose the wicket of the latter and one more in Meghna Singh, but the game was gone beyond Pakistan long ago. With this big win, Indias NRR will take a huge boost, for sure.
Superb bowling from Indian spinners made sure Pakistan collapse after making some headway early in the game after they won the toss and opted to bat. They lost the first wicket early only to be egged on by skipper Maroof and opener Muneeba Ali. But Sneh Rana picked two in no time to derail Pakistan innings. Later Radha Yadav also picked two as Pakistan lost half their side in no time. In-fact, they lost nine wickets for just 49 runs to get all out for 99. Both Sneh Rana and Radha Yadav were the pick of the bowlers, picking two wickets each.
Harmanpreet Kaur’s Team India was on the verge of their first-ever win at the Commonwealth Games until a masterclass from Ashleigh Gardner took Australia home at the last minute. Taking lessons from the 3-wicket defeat against the Aussies, the Women in Blue move ahead to their second group-stage game where they will face arch-rivals Pakistan on Sunday in Birmingham.
