India Women clinch their first victory at CWG 2022, Beat Pakistan by 8 Wickets

In women’s cricket, India maintained its dominance over Pakistan by handing them their tenth loss in twelve T20I matches. In their match at the Commonwealth Games on Sunday at Edgbaston, the team thrashed the opponent by 8 wickets.

Pakistan who won the toss of the rain-inflicted match had a really bad day. In the game that was shortened to 18 overs due to rain, the team could only score 99 runs and got all out. For them, the highest scoring batter was Muniba Ali, the opener who scored 32 runs. Apart from her, none of the batters could make a mark as the team got fissured on 99.

Credit must be given to Indian bowlers who bowled at right line and length and troubled the opponents throughout the innings. Sneh Rana and Radha Yadav took 2 wickets each while Renuka, Meghana and Shefali took 1 wicket each.

For India, Mandhana was the highest scoring batter, but Shafali’s nine-ball 16, which she scored in the top order, was also highly discouraging for Pakistan. Thought must be given to India’s bowlers for their role in the victory. The greatest spell of the day was Sneh Rana’s 2 for 17, which included the dismissals of Muneeba and Maroof, although Radha, Renuka, and Deepti all held things in check. That kind of strangling caused Pakistan to run out of runs.

A forgettable Sunday for Pakistan. The main topic of conversation would be their decision to bat first. Although it is agreed that teams should use their preferred tactics, it appeared that bowling first was the best move, even if you would rather do something else. The run-outs throughout the innings and the 49 dot balls in an 18-over inning didn’t help either.

Pakistan is still in contention to get to the semifinals, but they still need a lot of things to go their way. India hopes Australia defeats Barbados tonight so they may play the West Indian team in a direct knockout match the next day.
