Harmanpreet Kaur- led Team India is all set to take on Pakistan

Harmanpreet Kaur

Pakistan rode on half-centuries from Bismah Maroof and Nida Dar to post 133/7.

Skipper Harmanpreet Kaur insisted India are on the right track in the ongoing Women's World T20 campaign in the Caribbean after two wins from as many games but conceded she was disappointed with the team's fielding effort against Pakistan on Sunday.

In the shortest format of the game, India and Pakistan have met 10 times at the worldwide tournaments, in which, Team India won 8 times while Pakistan won only 2 times.

On the other hand, Pakistan will be itching to bounce back from the opening 52-run loss in the opener against Australia, especially considering their good form in the two wins in the warm-up fixtures against South Africa and Bangladesh. The Indians were sloppy on the field, dropping four easy catches even as their heads dropped towards the final overs. Despite a warning handed to the batters, they repeated the folly twice during the innings which resulted in a penalty of 5 runs on each of the two occasions.

India's leading T20 runscorer Raj was caught in the deep with only eight needed, but they soon sealed victory and will seek to maintain their ideal start when they play Ireland on Thursday.

"It was unprofessional on our part, after being warned, we still trodded on the danger area, it's something we need to work on".

Women's cricket team captain Harmanpreet Kaur on Friday romped into history books as she became the first Indian to score a century in a Twenty20 worldwide. The skipper led by example after India were struggling at 40 for three.

Preview: After a near flawless beginning, the Indian women's team will be overwhelming favourites against arch-rivals Pakistan in its second Group B encounter of the ICC World T20 on Sunday.

In reply, New Zealand were stopped at 160 for nine. They have a good spin attack and she is our best batter against spin. Yet, she managed to hit seven boundaries at a strike rate of 130 plus. They face Ireland on Thursday before taking on leaders Australia in their final group match on Saturday.
