Bisht shines as India beat Pakistan by 95 runs

Preview: Their confidence on an all-time high after back-to-back wins, India would look to continue their unbeaten streak when they clash against arch-rivals Pakistan in their third game of the ICC Women’s World Cup.After the victory, Indian Captain, Mithali Raj said that, “There were anxious moments”.Pakistan started their World Cup campaign with a win against the current T20 champions West Indies in a warm-up game.Currently, the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup tournament is going in England. The seniors in the Pakistan camp have to take responsibility and fend off the spin threat if they are to stand a chance of creating an upset. Mansi Joshi comes in for bowling Shikha Pandey. “Not getting a big score in the Champions Trophy was disappointing but I did everything I could to make my presence felt as a senior pro”. Each team will play against every other team in the tournament, which means Pakistan still have five more games to turn things around. Sushma batted well. The plan was to bowl dot balls and take wickets.India could not capitalise initially on their decision to bat as opening bowlers Asmavia Iqbal and Baig swung the ball and bowled full lengths to curb the openers. At the point when Pakistan confronts with India tomorrow, it won’t be a match between two uniformly matched groups supported by comparable structures and administration.”I just have to keep bowling irrespective of the nature of the wicket on offer”. I believe in my spinners that they will bounce back and take wickets, and we will win the match.”Our fielding was good, Diana brings a lot of spark to the team, she is a great athlete”.The Indian innings never gained momentum in their innings once in-form Smriti Mandhana (2) was dismissed cheaply.Despite half centuries from skipper Suzie Bates, making her 100 ODI appearance for her country, and Katie Perkins, New Zealand could only make 219 against tournament leaders Australia at the Country Ground in Bristol.For Pakistan, Nashra Sandhu claimed four wickets and Sadia Yousuf two. The Pakistani women’s team also lost to England as the host won by 107 runs. The wicket was better than against England; it’s offering turn now.In contrast, Pakistan lost both their matches against South Africa and England.
