India women beat Pakistan women by 95 runs at Derby today in the Women’s World Cup. India did not start off well, losing early wickets, the top order which comprises of big names like Smriti Mandhana and Mithali Raj. Still they managed to put on 169, which wasn’t looking like a challenging total. It seemed like India would lose to Pakistan, a feat that has not been achieved by the Pakistan Women’s cricket team.
With so much at stake, one expected the Pakistani women to show application, but they did the exact opposite. They were soon at the barrel at 9 for 3 which soon became 14 for 4. At that stage Indian women were looking clear winners. Ekta Bisht had already picked three top order batswoman. Sana Mir was the highest scorer for them, she scored 29 runs. That tells you the story.
India Women their unbeaten streak continues. From the Pakistani side Nashra picked 3 wickets but that was not good enough. Earlier in the day, India women won the toss and opted to bat first. If one can recall, Indian men lost to Pakistan in the finals of the ICC Champions Trophy and a lot was written about it.
