Pakistan need a breakthrough here in order to restrict the opponents to a low total.

TOSS UPDATE: Pakistan Women win toss, opt to field

After Charlotte Edwards’ retirement, England are playing under new captain Heather Knight and have done well in the first ODI of the series in all departments. The skipper led the bowling attack, herself taking 5 wickets, to restrict Pakistan at 165. Katherine Brunt took two wickets while Kate Cross, Natalie Sciver and Laura Marsh all got one wicket each. Tammy Beaumont remained the highest scorer with her 70 during England’s chase while Heather Knight created a record becoming the first woman to take 5 wickets as well as scoring 50 runs.

For Pakistan, Sidra Ameen did well with the bat as she scored 52 after opening the batting but ran out of support from the other end. Asmavia Iqbal scored 22 lower down the order. She also remained successful with the ball as she bagged two wickets while skipper Sana Mir took a single wicket. Pakistan will have to form a compact bowling attack while their batting needs to be more responsible.
