India women's team are rolling with their high confidence and performance in the Women's Asia Cup T20 trophy.
Pakistan have twice reached the finals of Women's Asia Cup. The Women in Blue are favourites to win a seventh continental title in Sunday's final. And now, India will face arch-rivals Pakistan in the crucial tie.
Earlier, left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht spun a web around the Pakistanis with three wickets, and was well assisted by the other Indian bowlers who stuck to a disciplined effort.
During their chase, India too got off to a forgettable start, losing former skipper Mithali Raj and Deepti Sharma for ducks with the scoreboard on 5/2. Riding on Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur's knocks, the side chased down Pakistan's paltry score of 72, with nearly four overs to spare.
