Beat B’Desh in Asiad Women Cricket
KARACHI: Pakistan women’s cricket team opened the gold medal account for Pakistan in the Asian Games on Friday, crushing Bangladesh by ten wickets to win the first-ever Asian Games women’s cricket tournament in Guangzhou. After winning the toss, Pakistan skipper Sana Mir invited Bangladesh to bat first, and her players dismissed them for 92 runs in the allotted 20 overs.
For Bangladesh, Salma Khatoon scored 27 and Romana made 17, while for Pakistan, Nida Rashid claimed three and Sana took two wickets. Pakistani openers reached the target with more than four overs to spare. Nida played an unbeaten inning of 51 runs, which included seven boundaries, while there were three boundaries in Javeria’s unbeaten 39.
Earlier, Japan defeated hosts China by seven wickets to win the bronze medal.
China were restricted to 65-6 off their 20 overs before Japan reached their target with four balls to spare, the winning run coming tamely when off-spinner Wu Juan bowled a wide.
Japan captain Ema Kuribayashi, who plays club cricket in New Zealand, top-scored for her side with an unbeaten 24.-PPI
