India outplay Pakistan
In the Women’s T20 World Cup match on Sunday at the Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town, India outplayed Pakistan.
Jemimah Rodrigues and the young player Richa Ghosh led India to a seven-wicket victory over Pakistan in the game.
When Rodrigues and Ghosh put together an unbroken 58 off 33 balls, what had been a tight run chase became a comfortable victory with an over to spare.
While Ghosh, 19, hit hard to score 31 not out off 20 balls, Rodrigues played with poise and finesse to make 53 not out off 38 balls.
Pakistan decided to bat on a dry pitch and posted 149 for 4.
At 68 for four in the 13th over, it seemed improbable that they would reach that score.
However, an unbroken partnership of 81 runs off of 47 balls between captain Bismah Maroof (68 not out) and Ayesha Naseem (43 not out) completely changed the innings.
The 18-year-old Naseem pounded out her runs off 25 balls, hitting two fours and two sixes, while the left-handed Maroof faced 55 balls and hit seven fours.
Soon after, Naseem launched an assault with some hard hitting, including a six over long off in a medium-paced Renuka Singh over that cost 18 runs.
The Pakistani left-arm spinner Nashra Sadhu bowled well to capture two for 15 in her four overs during the. Indian innings, which followed a similar pattern.
Shafali Verma and Indian skipper Harmanpreet Kaur were both bowled by Sadhu. Leaving India needing to score at over 10 runs per over in the final six overs. Sidra Ameen caught both of them wonderfully on the boundary.
However, Pakistan paid a price for only selecting five bowlers, since the additional. Bowlers were pricey and their fielders made a number of errors.
In the 18th over, three boundaries by Ghosh off consecutive balls from Aiman Anwer virtually ended the game.
