Still hurting from their narrow three-wicket defeat to current ODI and T20 world champions Australia, India will look to quickly put their campaign back on track when they take on Pakistan in the women’s T20 competition.
While India will be disappointed to not have closed out the game despite having the Southern Stars on the mat at 49/5 in the eighth over chasing 155, and then needing 89 off the final 10 overs, Pakistan too will be under pressure after going down to Barbados by 15 runs in another Group B clash on Saturday.
“I was very disappointed with India’s show on Friday. We lost a match we should’ve won. We had the game in our pocket, but a few blunders in the bowling changes towards the end cost us. Rajeswari Gayakwad (India’s leading left-arm spinner who went for 0-24 in 2 overs) should’ve been allowed to bowl her remaining two overs and complete her quota. What was the need to bowl Radha Yadav (the other left-arm spinner) for all her four overs? She ended up conceding 42 runs,”
However, considering their fabulous record against Pakistan, India should be the favourites to win Sunday’s big game and open their account.
