Birmingham: India women will take on Pakistan women in a high voltage match of the Birmingham Commonwealth Games 2022. This is a very crucial game for both teams as a loss will almost end their medal hopes in the competition. Both teams come into the match after losing their previous games. India suffered a close loss by three wickets to Australia while Pakistan were beaten by Barbados.
India had a decent game against Australia and dominated the Meg Lanning-led side for most of the match. However, they failed to close the game as Ashleigh Gardner’s 52 fetched an impressive win for his side. Meanwhile, Pakistan were way below par against Barbados.
It will not be easy for the Pakistan women’s team against India as their last win over the Women in Blue came six years back. In the last five T20I matches, India have thumped Pakistan on four occasions.
