Pakistan takes on India in ICC Women’s World Cup
DERBY (92 News) – Pakistan face arch-rivals India in a group stage match of the ICC Women’s World Cup at the County Ground in Derby, England today (Sunday).
Upbeat after back-to-back victories over England and West Indies, India would aim to continue their winning run when they clash against arch-rivals Pakistan in their third game of the ICC Women’s World Cup today.
India, enjoying rich vein of form, would definitely start as overwhelming favorites against Pakistan, who’ve looked below-par in the tournament so far.
As far as their recent form is concerned, India comprehensively won their last four ODI series, first whitewashing Sri Lanka and the West Indies at home and then beating South Africa in the finals of the World Cup qualifier and as well as the quadrangular series.
Sana Mir-led Pakistan, on the other hand, are yet to taste victory in the tournament. They have lost by three wickets against South Africa before being handed a heavy 107 runs defeat via D/L method by England.
And come today, they would be desperate to open their account and what better it can be if they can taste success at the expense of traditional rivals India. But it would be easier said than done as India are looking a completely different side in this tournament. The Indians have so far excelled in all three departments of the game.
In other matches to be played tomorrow, Australia will play against New Zealand at Bristol, England will take on Sri Lanka at Taunton and South Africa will face West Indies at Leicester.
