ICC Women's World T20, Highlights, India vs Pakistan, Full Cricket Score: Harmanpreet Kaur and Co win by 7 wickets

Date: Monday, 12 November, 2018 00:02 IST Match Status: Yet to Start
  • That's it for tonight from us as India beat their arch-rivals Pakistan by seven wickets. Pakistan scored a solid 134 but Mithali Raj's classy 56 has taken India a step closer to the semi-final spot . We will see you again on Thursday as India take on Ireland. For now, goodnight! 

  • Harmanpreet Kaur: In shorter format, it's very important how you bowl and bat in first six overs and I think our bowlers did very well in first six overs. As Mithali is best against spinners we asked her to open the innings. We also wanted Veda Krishnamurthy to spend sometime in the middle. We are on the right track and we need to continue doing the good work.

  • Javeria Khan, Pakistan captain: We've been wokring really hard, the coach has been working hard to empower the players, giving us confidence and we're really glad they're here with us. We were told to play fearless cricket and despite losing wickets, we could still go for our shots and that's how they (Nida and Bismah) played. I'm sure both those girls will inspire the rest of the team to build more partnerships and hopefully get some results. I did have a chat (regarding the penalities). They told me that after warning the players three times, they gave the penalties. It's unprofessionalism on our part because it's not happened the first time that this has happened. It's happened in the Sri Lanka series as well, so we really need to look into it. The way our bowlers bowled, maybe they could have been better. After being penalised by 10 runs, we made them reach the 19th over and if we could have executed our plans better, we could have contained them better. Really happy with the girls and the coaches have said it's not the result that matters its the way we play that's how we inspire young girls. As long as the graph keeps going upwards I am happy, the results will eventually come and that's how we would get them to come forward and play cricket and keep us strong. I would want more girls particpating in sports be it cricket or any other.

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    This was Pakistan's fifth consecutive defeat in Women's T20Is while India's fifth consecutive victory.

  • Mithali Raj, Player of the Match: I enjoy opening the batting. I also like batting in the middle. At the end of the day, I enjoy batting. Chasing puts a little pressure, to keep up the run-rate, but that's is what I enjoy. There's no doubt that we will get to play the semis. But going forward we will need to be at our best as we will play the best teams.

  • Mithali Raj is the Player of the Match for her innings of 56

  • Colin Benjamin, Cricket writer from Providence Stadium, Guyana

    The 10 over half-way stage is that the pitch is holding up well and not turning elaborately for the spinners. India's batters despite loosing the wicket of Mandhana have had little to zero demons from pitch or special deliveries to negotiate. 

    Pakistan's bowlers haven't looked threatening, even with their spinners not getting assistance from a Providence surface that they may have hoped would start deteriorating a bit in second innings

  • Sana Mir back into attack.

  • After 12 overs,India Women 84/1 ( Mithali Raj 38 , Jemimah Rodrigues 7)

    Six runs from the over. Nida and Maroof have done well to restrict the boundaries and that has led the Indians to rely upon singles and doubles. India need 50 in 48 balls.

  • After 11 overs,India Women 78/1 ( Mithali Raj 36 , Jemimah Rodrigues 3)

    Four singles in the over. India need 56 runs in last nine overs.

  • After 8 overs,India Women 63/0 ( Mithali Raj 32 , Smriti Mandhana 19)

    Horrible start for Aliya Riaz as she concedes 10 runs in her first over. Mithali slammed two consecutive fours on the second and third delivery before taking a single to long-on. Mandhana also added one with a cut towards point.

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Mithali Raj just went past Meg Lanning's tally of 637 runs to become the fourth highest run-getter in Women's World T20.

  • Colin Benjamin, Cricket writer from Providence Stadium, Guyana

    Not often in cricket do you see a team getting a 10-run head start, as India have in their reply to Pakistan's innings total. But regardless of that, in front of decent local crowd in blazing sunshine, Mithali Raj and Smriti Mandhana are making things looks easy. An unbeaten 50 opening partnership to complete the six over powerplay period without playing a shot in anger.

  • FOUR! Consecutive fours here for Mithali. This was on the pads and Mithali pushed it to square-leg with her strong wrists

  • FOUR! Aliya bowls in a bit short and Mithali cuts it late to place it past backward point

  • Off-spinner Aliya Riaz comes into attak.

  • After 7 overs,India Women 53/0 ( Mithali Raj 23 , Smriti Mandhana 18)

    An over full of singles for India as they take five of them to cross 50-run mark. A solid opening partnership here for India. The asking rate is quite lower than the scoring rate, so no need to take risks.

  • Diana Baig back into attack.

  • After 6 overs,India Women 48/0 ( Mithali Raj 20 , Smriti Mandhana 16)

    A decent over for Pakistan as five runs come off it. Mithali started off with a four through mid-wicket and then took a single on the third ball in the same region. Indian need 86 in 84 balls now.

  • FOUR! It was on the middle and leg and Mithali maneuvers it past square leg for a boundary 

  • Off-spinner Nida Dar comes into attack.

  • After 5 overs,India Women 43/0 ( Mithali Raj 15 , Smriti Mandhana 16)

    A good over from Sana Mir. She kept it tight mostly except one delivery, which was short and Mandhana pulled it for a four. 

  • FOUR! A bit short by Sana Mir and Mandhana pulls it over square-leg to grab a boundary

  • After 4 overs,India Women 39/0 ( Mithali Raj 15 , Smriti Mandhana 12)

    Two exquisite boundaries through the cover region from Mithali helps her collect eight runs from the over. They are scoring at a rate of 9.75.

Preview: After a near perfect beginning, the Indian women's team will be overwhelming favourites against arch-rivals Pakistan in its second Group B encounter of the ICC World T20 on Sunday.

Not considered among the top T20 teams in the world, India produced a power-packed performance, winning the opener against a formidable New Zealand side by 34 runs after skipper Harmanpreet Kaur's 51-ball 103.

With momentum firmly on India's side, the 'Women In Blue' would like to set the record straight after losing to their arch-rivals in the 2016 edition at home.

However, since that loss in Delhi, India have played Pakistan thrice across two editions of Asia Cup, winning all the battles.

That Pakistan lost by a comprehensive 52-run margin to Australia in their lung opener will also give India an upperhand during Sunday's encounter.

The best aspect about India's performance against 'White Ferns' was young Jemimah Rodrigues's matured effort. With her skipper going for the jugular, 18-year-old Rodrigues just tapped for singles giving the senior player bulk of the strike. Yet, she managed to hit seven boundaries at a strike rate of 130 plus.

So much so that veteran Mithali Raj's services wasn't required during the Indian innings.

The Providence Stadium track proved to be helpful for the slow bowlers with India using as many as four of them in off-spinners Deepti Sharma and Dayalan Hemlatha, leg-spinner Poonam Yadav and left-arm orthodox Radha Yadav.

The spinners accounted for eight of the nine New Zealand wickets with lone seamer Arundhati Reddy picking the other scalp.

Against Pakistan, India might be tempted to use a second seamer in either Mansi Joshi or Pooja Vastrakar.

The Pakistan team has some quality players in skipper Javeria Khan, veteran spinner Sana Mir and all-rounder Bismah Maroof. Against Australia, the Pakistan batting simply fell apart chasing a target of 153.

Not a single batter could cross the individual score of 30 with Bismah's 26 being the top scorer. The bowlers were also off the mark during the first eight overs when Beth Mooney and Alyssa Healey took them to the cleaners with a 72-run stand.

Sana's off-day (0/32 in 4 overs) was one of the factors for Pakistan not being able to contain Australia during the initial overs.

Come Sunday, they will have an onerous task at hand against the high on confidence Indian outfit.
