Jemima Rodriguez won the game with an unbeaten half-century.
New Delhi. The Indian cricket team registered a thumping victory against Pakistan in the first match of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. Batting first after winning the toss, the Pakistan team scored 149 runs for the loss of 4 wickets on the basis of Captain Misbah Maroof’s Fifty. The Indian team had lost 3 wickets one after the other while chasing the target, but experienced Jemima Rodrigues led the team to victory in a match-winning innings. The last shot was such that the name of this player was registered in the record book of the World Cup.
The Indian team got a resounding victory in the first match of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. Team India’s young batsman Jemima not only got India out of trouble while batting well, but also returned after winning the team. Coming out to bat at number three, Jemima Rodriguez held one end and finished the match with fours. At one point, the Pakistan team seemed to be making a comeback in the match, but together with Richa, they took the match away from their reach by hitting quick shots.
Jemima made two victims with 1 four
The Indian team went out to play against Pakistan without experienced opener Smriti Mandhana. Yastika Bhatia could not give the team the start that was expected. India lost the wicket of Shefali Verma at the wrong time and then captain Harmanpreet Kaur was out. From here Jemima took the lead and first took the score closer and then finished the match collecting de-danadan shots.
Jemima was on 49 when India needed 1 run to win. He completed his fifty with a brilliant four and also gave victory to India. Whenever the first half-century scored by India in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 will be remembered, Jemima’s name will appear in the record books.
