Indian eves thrash Pak

Guanggong (China): Riding on Archana Das and Reema Malhotra's brilliant bowling, the Indian Women's cricket team registered a comfortable eight-wicket win over Pakistan in the T20 Asia Cup here on Sunday.

After bundling out the arch-rivals for a meagre 93 in 19.3 overs, Indian eves reached the target with nine balls to spare, including captain Mithali Raj's unbeaten 36-run knock, losing just two wickets in the process here at the Guanggong International Cricket Stadium.

From 73 for three in 15 overs, Pakistan lost seven wickets for just another 20 runs in 27 balls with Indian bowlers wrecking havoc.

Archana (2/12) and Reema (2/13) ended with two wickets each, while Ekta Bisht and Nagarajan Niranjana took a wicket apiece.
