Famous for his witty tweets, former Indian explosive batsman Virender Sehwag on Sunday congratulated Indian women's cricket team in his own way as the team registered a seven-wicket victory over arch-rival Pakistan at the ICC World Cup Qualifiers.
India bundled out Pakistan for a meagre 67 in 43.4 overs after asking them to bat upon winning the toss. The team then achieved the target in just 22.3 overs, scoring 70 for three to post a comprehensive win which helped it top the Super 6 table.
Ekta Bisht shone for India with an impressive five-wicket haul, finishing with brilliant figures of 10-7-8-5.
Sehwag is ‘King of Trolls’ especially when it comes to Pakistani players or fans.
“Congratulations @BCCIWomen for defeating Pakistan by 7 wickets in Women's World Cup qualifier 2017 #IndvPak . Ab to Aadat Si Hai !," wrote Sehwag on his twitter handle.
Shikha Pandey (2/09) chipped in with a couple of wickets. The two bowlers ran through the Pakistani batting line-up. They kept losing wickets regularly and only two Pakistani batters could reach the double-digit mark.
Deepti and Harmanpreet put on a solid 42 runs together for the third wicket.
For Pakistan, Sadia Yousuf claimed two wickets by giving away 19 runs.
Pakistan Women: 67 all out in 43.4 overs (Ayesha Zafar 19; Ekta Bisht 5/08, Shikha Pandey 2/09).
India Women: 70 for 3 in 22.3 overs (Deepti Sharma 29 not out, Harmanpreet Kaur 24; Sadia Yousuf 2/19).
