Mithali Raj's half-century guides India to 7-wicket win over Pak

Pakistan made their highest total in all ICC Women's World T20, with both Bismah Maroof and Nida Dar making fifties.

Earlier, Indian bowlers pinned Pakistan down for most part of their innings before allowing Pakistan to wriggle out to 133 for 7.

Mithali Raj was India's star performer with a 47-ball 56 but India were sloppy on the field. They were warned three times before incurring their first penalty for running down the line of the stumps.

Mithali Raj top scored with 56 runs while Smriti Mandhana played a decent inning of 26 runs.

With her 15 T20I fifty, Mithali became the third batter to score more than 500 T20I runs in 2018.

India's leading T20 runscorer Raj was caught in the deep with only eight needed, but they soon sealed victory and will seek to maintain their flawless start when they play Ireland on Thursday. Our bowling effort was good despite being 10 runs short.

But Amazon's final selections suggest that all the subsidies and giveaways probably weren't needed, some economists said. It's hard to argue with her conclusion: "The victor in this deal isn't NY , and it certainly isn't the taxpayers".

Dayalan Hemalatha brought the Indians back into the game when she sent back both Pakistani batters in the 19th over shortly after they had reached their respective half-centuries.

They started well with Krisnamurthy taking a smart catch at wide first slip in the first over and Jemimah Rodrigues producing a stunning direct hit to provide India two early wickets after Kaur won the toss. Although the team scored 135 runs, two runs were cancelled as the batters ran on the danger area of the pitch.
