Report: Ind vs Pak (Women), WT20 2014 Playoffs

Raj, Dabir star in India’s win

India Women won the play-off against Pakistan Women by six runs at the Sylhet Stadium. Skipper Mithali Raj top-scored for India, while Soniya Dabir (three wickets) set the ball rolling while defending 106 runs to claim victory. The win helped India finish in fifth place in the tournament.

Dabir claimed both the openers to leave Pakistan on 11 for two. Sravanthi Naidu and Shubhalakshmi Sharma supported her in toppling the middle order, while Poonam Yadav claimed two lower-middle order wickets to keep the opposition under control. The India attack bowled the team to victory by keeping Pakistan to 100 for nine in the day/night game.

Earlier, the Indian top order’s contribution helped the team go past the three-figure mark. The India captain who has been the most consistent of the line-up top-scored for the team with 39 runs. The middle order though failed to build on the platform. The departure of Jhulan Goswami for zero, leaving India on 64 for three, triggered a collapse. India finished with 106 for seven, a few runs short of what they would have liked to have on the board.
