India and Pakistan get set to renew their rivalry in the cricket field after a span of many months, which almost felt like years. The Women's T20 Asia Cup 2016 remains the tournament as the top women cricketers of both the nations clash swords in Thailand. MATCH RESULT HERE...
The teams clashed last time at the ICC World T20 2016 where Pakistan Women just edged past the hosts at Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi. Can revenge be exacted on their arch-rivals by Harmanpreet Kaur and her women army this time around? That remains to be seen.
Both India Women and Pakistan Women have been impressive so far in the Asian Cricket Council-organised Twenty20 cricket tournament. They have won both their respective matches so far in the tournament. Here are the results:
1st match: beat Bangladesh Women by 64 runs
2nd match: beat Thailand Women by nine wickets
1st match: beat Nepal Women by nine wickets
2nd match: beat Sri Lanka Women by eight wickets
For India, leg-break bowler Poonam Yadav remained impressive in their first T20 match of the tournament as she took three wickets, giving away only 13 runs in four overs. For Pakistan, Javeria Khan is one to watch out for. The 28-year-old right-handed batter scored 56 off 51 balls to lead her side to a victory against Sri Lanka Women in the previous game.
