India Women vs Pakistan Women ICC Women’s World T20: Young star Jemimah Rodriguez once again proved why she is highly rated as an all-round cricketer. Rodriguez hit the bullseye to send Pakistan’s Omaima Sohail packing for three off six balls. The runout will remind you of Ravindra Jadeja, who is lightning quick to the ball on most occasions and is one of the best fielders in the world. Rodrigues showed similar agility when she run out the Pakistan batter. Young Rodrigues quickly picked up the ball and affected the direct-hit at the bowler’s end to catch the batswomen short of her crease. There was no run and it looked suicidal from the outset after the Pakistani batswoman hit the ball to point.
Earlier in the day, India Women won the toss and put their Pakistan counterparts to bat first. The Women in Green got off to a disastrous start as they lost their openers early. Ayesha Zafar was out without scoring and Javeria Khan could only manage 17 before she was runout. Pakistan is surely having a problem with the running between the wickets. Arundhati Reddy got the only wicket taken by a bowler.
At the time of filing the copy, Pakistan eves were 83/3 in 13.3 overs with Maroof on 28 and Dar on 32.
