PAKW 117/4 in 30 overs: Live Cricket Scorecard: Target 367: Sidra Nawaz 47(67), Sana Mir 13(25): Pakistan batters are on the back foot. It is just a matter of time before England wins this match. Nawaz and Mir have not been able to score runs according to required rate. Only 16 runs in the past five overs.

PAKW 101/4 in 25 overs: Live Cricket Scorecard: Target 367: Sidra Nawaz 41(55), Sana Mir 3(7): Another wicket goes down for Pakistan as Marsh takes her first wicket of the match. The flow of runs has slowed down again after the loss of first wicket. Nawaz too had taken a backseat trying not to lose her wicket.

OUT!!! Bismah Maroof c Sciver b Marsh 33 (51)

PAKW 81/3 in 20 overs: Live Cricket Scorecard: Target 367: Bismah Maroof 26(46), Sidra Nawaz 31(37): Pakistan have started to accelerate a bit in the last five overs. They have managed to score 39 runs in the last five overs. These two have shared a partnership of 59 runs so far. The run rate has climbed onto more than 9 runs per over in the last 30 overs. It will take a wholehearted attempt from these two batters to take Pakistan anywhere near the total.

PAKW 42/3 in 15 overs: Live Cricket Scorecard: Target 367: Bismah Maroof 11(31), Sidra Nawaz 15(28): No signs of aggression from Pakistan batters yet. They managed to score just 12 runs in the past five overs. It seems like they are trying to play out the overs and save themselves from the humiliation.

PAKW 16/1 in 5 overs: Live Cricket Scorecard: Target 367: Javeria Khan 5(11), Bismah Maroof 0(5): Another disappointing start from Pakistan chasing a huge total. They lose their first wicket early on in the innings putting pressure on the ones to follow. it is highly unlikely that Pakistan will be reaching anywhere near England’s total if they continue like this. Shrubsole strikes early as opener Sidra Ameen takes the long walk back to the pavilion after scoring just 9 runs.

OUT!!! Sidra Ameen c Brunt b Shrubsole 9 (15)
