    LIVE, INDW 51/1 in 8 Ovs — GONE!!!! The opening wicket is down for the Indians, but it is hardly going to matter, as they are just 19 runs short of the target. Harmanpreet is the batsman to be dismissed for 35 to Tippoch, while Sushma Vemra is the new batsman in.

    OUT! Harmanpreet Kaur st N Khoncharoenkai b Sornnarin Tippoch 35 (26)

    LIVE, INDW 34/0 in 4 Ovs — Steady start by the Indians, as they have managed to score 34 odd runs in just the opening four overs, and are now just 36 runs short of the target, with all the wickets remaining. Should indeed be an easy chase down for the Indians.

    LIVE, THAW 69/5 in 20 Ovs — THAT’S IT!!!! Thailand have scored a very low total of 69 for the loss of five wickets in the allotted 20 overs, which is indeed a very low total compared to the standards of India, as they are expected to chase this down easily, while R Padunglerd has scored 20, and M Joshi is the top wicket-taker.

    LIVE, THAW 41/3 in 16 Ovs — GONE!!!! The third wicket is down for the Thai, as the Indians finally strike after a long time, while the Tahi batsmen have managed to put up a slow and steady show. Still four more overs to go, and how much can they put on the board? 50 yet to come up for the Thai.

    LIVE, THAW 37/2 in 12 Ovs — Still no harm done to the Thai innings, as the batsmen seem to have taken good control of the situation, while the Indian bowlers still continue to make it difficult for the batsmen to score, as they are hardly scoring runs. Would be interesting to see how things pan out in the next eight overs.

  • 9:09 AM IST

    LIVE, THAW 22/2 in 8 Ovs — No harm done following the quick loss of the opening couple of wickets for Thailand, as the current batsmen are making sure that they don’t suffer further setbacks, and also make sure to reach a safe total at the end of the innings, while the Indian bowlers are bowling pretty tight as of now, hardly allowing the Thai batsmen to give any room to score runs.

India vs Bangladesh, ACC Women’s Asia Cup T20 2016, Match 1: Indian Eves thrash Bangladesh in opener

Indian women produced a professional performance to beat Bangladesh by 64 runs in their opening match of the Women’s Asia Cup T20 tournament on Saturday. The experienced pair of Mithali Raj (49 not out) and Smriti Mandhana (41) put up a 70- run stand for the opening wicket to take India to 118 for six in 20 overs. The team led by Harmanpreet Kaur was clinical with the ball, bowling out Bangladesh for a mere 54 runs for a comprehensive victory. The star bowler for India was leggie Poonam Yadav, who picked up three wickets and conceded just 13 runs in four overs.

India should have set a bigger total, especially with the kind of start provided by the openers. However, that wasn’t to be as they lost their way in the second half of the innings. In the other match of the day, Pakistan too began their campaign on an emphatic note by giving Nepal a nine wicket thrashing, reported PTI.
