Women’s World T20 2018: Day 7 Round Up

Match #13: India Women vs Ireland Women, Group B

India have comfortably defeated Ireland by a margin of 52 runs to cruise into the WWT20 semi-finals. They are now the second team after Australia to book a semis berth. India batting first finished their innings with 145 for 6 in 20 overs courtesy good partnerships for the first two wickets.

Ireland helped India move to the next stage of this tournament and they looked clueless during the chase, finishing with just 93 for 8 in 20 overs. Indian opener Mithali Raj scored her second half century in as many games and has been adjudged as the ‘Player of the Match’. She scored 51 runs off 56 deliveries which includes 4 fours and a six.

India Women and Australia Women have already qualified to the semis from Group B and that implies New Zealand Women, Pakistan Women and Ireland Women are all knocked out from the tournament.

Brief Scores:

India Women – 145/6 in 20 overs (Mithali Raj – 51, Smriti Mandhana – 33, Kim Garth – 2/22, Laura Delany – 1/21) beat Ireland Women – 93/8 in 20 overs (Isobel Joyce – 33, Clare Shillington – 23, Radha Yadav – 3/25, Deepti Sharma – 2/15) by a margin of 52 runs

Match #14: New Zealand Women vs Pakistan Women, Group B

After two defeats in their first two games, New Zealand Women defeated Pakistan Women on Thursday (Nov 15) to register their maiden win in the ongoing Women’s World T20 tournament in the Caribbean. After being put into bat first, NZ top-order fired with the bat helping them reach to 144 for 6 in 20 overs. Suzie Bates once again top scored for them with 35 runs.

Chasing a good total to win, Pakistan were off to a flying start with their captain Javeria Khan going for all her shots. They were 31 for no loss after 3 overs and looked very much comfortable to chase down the target with ease. However, just like their start Pakistan’s fall was also steep who were eventually bowled out for just 90 runs conceding NZ a 54-run victory.

Brief Scores:

New Zealand Women – 144/6 in 20 overs (Suzie Bates – 35, Sophie Devine – 32, Aliya Riaz – 2/29, Sana Mir – 2/35) beat Pakistan Women – 90 all out in 18 overs (Javeria Khan – 36, Aliya Riaz – 12, Jess Watkin – 3/9, Amelia Kerr – 3/21) by a margin of 54 runs
