Pakistan won the toss and asked the Women In Maroon to bat first in a rain-curtailed game. The decision proved right as the West Indies were restricted to 89/7 in a 20-over game. In reply, the Bismah Maroof-led side chased down the target after losing just two wickets with eight balls to spare. This was the first win for the team in the competition, with the team almost out of the semis contention.
After the game, the 30-year-old celebrated the win with her newborn. The video was posted by the cricket’s governing body on their Instagram account. Talking about the points table, Pakistan are languishing at the bottom, with only one win in five games with a Net Run Rate of (-0.878). On the other hand, the West Indies are still in contention with six points in as many games,
