Mithali Raj guides India to win over Pakistan

India's M Raj was declared player of the match for her 56 runs

"Pakistan are a good bowling side, she's (Mithali) very good against spin and that's why we played her up there, it was a decision by the coach and me", said Harmanpreet, in the post-match presentation.

Courtesy the victory, India (with four points) now have inched closer to securing a place in the semi-finals from the five-team Group B. Two teams each from the two groups qualify for the semi-finals. But a penalty of 10 runs put them on the backfoot from the start.

India were sloppy in the field, dropping several catches.

Kaur, who had become the first Indian woman to score a T20I century on Friday, remained unbeaten on 14 as India completed the chase of 134 with an over to spare.

As we have seen in the first few games with the Lakers , Walton has elected to go with Chandler at the five to close out games. A three-game suspension pressed Ball into the starting lineup, where he's remained for the past 12 games.

Smriti Mandhana (26) fell to Maroof with 73 on the board for India, Raj brought up her fifty off 42 balls, with a four through mid-wicket and although Diana Bag had her dismissed for 56 - Veda Krishnamurthy launched the ball to the mid-wicket boundary to seal the victory. In the first ball of the 18th over, Bismah Maroof and Nida Dar were at the crease when they were docked 5 runs for the first time.

Pakistan were yet to open account then and they could have been in a worse situation had Smriti Mandhana not dropped captain Javeria Khan in the third over. It will next face Ireland on Thursday. All the three were regulation catches. Dar prospered from two of those chances (dropped on 15 and 29) and Mahroof from one (dropped on 28), and both combined for a fourth wicket partnership of 94 off 71 balls. Indian batsman scored 137 for 3 in 19 overs. But, Maroof and Nida brilliantly fought back, taking their team across the 100-run mark.

Dayalan Hemalatha and Poonam Yadav claimed two wickets each. The ICC's playing conditions calls for a first and final warning from the umpires for encroaching the protected area of the track, before the team is penalised five runs for the next offence.

India's chase was made easier by 10 penalty runs awarded to them at the start of their innings.
