The Pakistan team had given a target of 150 runs to the Indian team. Chasing this challenge, the Indian team created history by winning by 7 wickets. After this performance, the performance of the Indian women’s team is being appreciated from all levels. In this, the former captain of the Indian team and legendary batsman Virat Kohli praised the Indian team by posting on social media.
Virat wrote in the post, ‘Our women’s team performed brilliantly even under pressure against the Pakistan team and chased down the challenge successfully. Our team is proving itself in every competition. This team is inspiring our entire generation to play in the future. Apart from Virat, spinner R Ashwin also praised the Indian team. He wrote, ‘Indian team chased the challenge very well. Jemima and Richa did well. The most important thing is that even in an exciting match, the Indian team was very calm and composed.’
Both Jemima Rodrigues and Richa Ghosh have played a big role in India’s victory. Pakistan had set a target of 150 runs against India. While chasing this challenge, Shafali Verma and Yastika Bhatia opened the Indian team with 38 runs in 5.3 overs. After Bhatia’s dismissal, Shafali increased the run rate with Jemima. Shafali scored 33 runs. Captain Harmanpreet contributed aggressive 16 runs. Jemima’s unbeaten 53 runs and Richa’s unbeaten 31 runs helped India win by scoring 151 runs for 3 wickets in 19 overs. Jemima was adjudged man of the match for this exceptional performance. Radha Yadav took the most 2 wickets for India. Due to the bowling of Deepti Sharma, the Pakistan team could not play aggressively in the beginning. Captain Harmanpreet contributed aggressive 16 runs.
High quality run chase this from @BCCIWomen 🔥🔥. Jemima and Richa were fantastic, but what stuck out was how calm the dressing room was when we needed 40 from 4 overs. #T20WorldCup2023
