…Presentation coming up…
A complete performance by India, the bowlers did most of the job and it was just formalities after that. It was a big toss to win for India and they were ruthless from start to finish. Only one batter of Thailand managed to cross the double-digit mark. It was the spinners who run riot with Sneh Rana finishing with three wickets while Deepti Sharma and Rajeshwari Gayakwad claimed two wickets. A learning curve for Thailand Women who showed everyone when they beat Pakistan that they do have the determination but needs more exposure.
A dominating performance with the ball and bat by India Women! They will certainly finish on top of the table unless Pakistan come up with something miraculous and for Thailand Women, they sit on fourth place for now but if Bangladesh win their next game, Thailand will miss out on the semi-final place.
