Another clinical win and this time by 8 wickets on the back of fifties from Jamimah Rodrigues & debutant Priya Punia who even went onto score the winning runs. While this whole victory was setup by the bowlers with senior pacer Jhulan Goswami taking 3-fer & likes of Shikha Pandey, Ekta Bisht & Poonam Yadav following her with 2 wickets apiece whereas Deepti Sharma getting a solitary wicket.

On comparing both the sides India look solid in every department & especially the batting department is looking good despite Smriti Mandhana missing out due to injury. So, expect another crackling match on Friday.
