Rodrigues and Richa lead India to victory over Pakistan

Cape Town : India rode on a half-century from Jemima Rodrigues (53 not out) and an unbroken 33-ball 58-run partnership for the fourth wicket with wicket-keeper batsman Richa Ghosh (31 not out) to thrash arch-rivals Pakistan in their ICC Women’s T20 World Cup match here on Sunday. Defeated by 7 wickets with one over remaining. Pakistan posted a challenging 149 for four thanks to a half-century from skipper Bismah Maroof (68 not out) and an unbroken 81-run partnership for the fifth wicket with Ayesha Naseem (43 not out). India achieved this target by scoring 151 runs in three wickets in 19 overs, in which ‘Player of the Match’ Jemima Rodrigues’s unbeaten 38-ball half-century innings of eight fours was important.
