India Women vs Pakistan Women Highlights: India registered an emphatic 107-run victory over Pakistan to make a winning start to their World Cup campaign. Rajeshwari Gayakwad (4/31) was the pick of the bowlers and Jhulan Goswami (2/26), Meghna Singh (1/21), Deepti Sharma (1/31), and Sneh Rana (2/27) were all among the wickets, as Pakistan's batting order faced a disappointing collapse in the 245-run chase. Opener Sidra Ameen (30) was the highest run-scorer as she continued to run out of partners before being dismissed herself by Jhulan Goswami. Earlier, Pooja Vastrakar (67) and Sneh Rana (53*) ensured India post a competitive score of 244/7 in 50 overs against Pakistan. After the side was reduced to 114/6, Vastrakar and Rana forged a 122-run stand to not only bail India out of trouble, but also shatter records after records to put India in commanding position at the innings break. The duo now holds the record for the highest partnership for the seventh wicket in the women's world cups.

    IND vs PAK Live Updates: Javeria takes the aerial route!

    More positive approach from both openers now. This might have not gone where Javeria intended, but the runs have started to come now. Fuller from Meghna and Javeria wanted to loft it over cover, but gets a thick outside edge. Ball lands in the safe zone, though.

    Pakistan 18/0 in 9.1 overs

  • Mar 06, 2022 10:59 AM IST

  • Mar 06, 2022 10:53 AM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live Updates: Very slow so far

    Only 8 runs off 7 overs.

    Pakistan openers quite repetitive in their shot selection, and it has been easy for Jhulan and Meghna so far. They just need to keep their line outside off and pitch it on good length.

  • Mar 06, 2022 10:50 AM IST

    IND vs PAK Live Score: Testing lengths

    Both, Jhulan and Meghna are testing the Pakistan batters with the lengths outside the off-stump. Javeria and Sidra have both been beaten on multiple occasions while going for the cut shot.

  • Mar 06, 2022 10:38 AM IST

    India vs Paksitan Live Cricket Updates: Massive appeal!

    But not out. No review taken as well. After bowling it away from Sidra for all five deliveries, Jhulan gets the ball to swing into the right-hander. It was probably missing the leg-stump, however.

    PAK 5/0 in 3 overs, Target 245

  • Mar 06, 2022 10:34 AM IST

    Pakistan will have to break their own record for the highest run-chase to win this game against India.

    India vs Pakistan Live Updates: 100-run partnership!

    Pakistan were in full control when they dismissed Mithali Raj in the 34th over of the game, but that seems a long ago now.

  • Mar 06, 2022 09:36 AM IST

    IND vs PAK Live Score: 50 for Vastrakar!

    What a knock this has been from the 22-year-old. In her debut World Cup game, Vastrakar came at a really difficult situation with India having just lost the massive wicket of Mithali Raj; however, she remained undeterred with the collapse to bring her fifty in merely 48 deliveries!

    India 209/6 in 46.1 overs

  • Mar 06, 2022 09:15 AM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live Score: OUT!

    BIG WICKET! Mithali Raj is out on 9. Massive blow to India's chances here. Mithali Raj charges down the track but doesn't get the timing at all. She finds an outside edge and is caught at point.

    IND vs PAK Live Score: OUT!

    Poor from Richa. She is bowled as Nida gets her second. In a bid to up the ante, Richa tries to go for the aerial route over deep mid-wicket, but finds a thick inside edge that ricochets on to stumps.

    India 112/5 in 30.5 overs

    IND vs PAK Live Cricket Updates: WICKET!

  • Mar 06, 2022 08:05 AM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live Score: OUT!

    BIG WICKET! Mandhana is dismissed on 52. This is such a soft dismissal. Smriti initially looked for a big hit but adopts a defensive approach mid-way through the delivery, and hands a simple catch to Anam Amin. Big blow for India.

    India 98/3 in 24.1 overs

  • Mar 06, 2022 08:04 AM IST

    IND vs PAK Live Updates: OUT!

    Deepti falls on 40. It's an almost unbelievable miss for Deepti. Nashra drags her length back and spins it into the left-hander. Deepti goes for a sweep but misses the line completely, as the ball goes behind her and hits the stump.

    India 96/2 in 22 overs

  • Mar 06, 2022 07:55 AM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live Score: 50 for Mandhana!

    What an innings from the left-hander! She had looked a little fidgety at first and was clearly under pressure at being unable to find the gaps on the off-side, but grew in confidence after charging down the track for a couple of high-scoring shots against Nida Dar. Mandhana gets her fifty with a push towards long-off.

  • Mar 06, 2022 07:52 AM IST

    IND vs PAK Live Cricket Updates: Runs flowing for India

    5 off Nida Dar's fifth over as Deepti moves on to 38. Smriti Mandhana on 48.

    India vs Pakistan Live Score: Pressure shifting towards Pakistan

    Smriti, who, at the start of the innings, wasn't ready to take a single on a misfield, has now run three after fielder at front of square fumbles. Pressure shifting to Pakistan, confidence oozing for India at the moment.

    India 74/1 in 17 overs

  • Mar 06, 2022 07:37 AM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live Updates: Deepti's leg-side onslaught continues

    A bit fuller from Fatima and Deepti pounces on the opportunity, lofting it away towards the deep mid-wicket region again. Most of the boundaries have come towards that area and there's rightfully a fielder in place now.

  • Mar 06, 2022 07:33 AM IST

    IND vs PAK Live Score: India 65/1 in 16 overs; Drinks

    It was a good start for Pakistan as they dismissed Shafali Verma early in the innings, but Smriti Mandhana (37*) and Deepti Sharma (22*) saw off the dangerous phase of the innings and continue to rebuild the Indian innings.

    India 46/1 in 12 overs

  • Mar 06, 2022 07:13 AM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live Score: Four!

    Another boundary from Mandhana off Nida Dar. Poor line from the spinner as she bowls down the leg; all the batter needed to do was time it away from fielder's reach, and Mandhana did it with perfection.

  • Mar 06, 2022 07:10 AM IST

    IND vs PAK Live Updates: Confidence oozing with each delivery

    More confident shot-making from both batters as the strike-rotation is better. Deepti uses the pace of Fatima to edge the fifth delivery for single towards third-man boundary. 5 off the over.

    Another good over from Diana Beg as he concedes only three. Mandhana is getting fidgety now and trying to get big shots. However, doesn't find the gaps.

    India 24/1 in 9 overs

  • Mar 06, 2022 06:57 AM IST

    IND vs PAK Live Cricket Score: SMRITI SURVIVES!

    That should have been a second wicket! The fielder at short-cover just falls short as Mandhana's miscued lofted shot falls near mid-off. Smriti survives. The tight off-side field forces Mandhana to go for a big hit and the ball finds the top-edge of the bat as Mandhana attempts to go over mid-off.

    India 15/1 in 5 overs

  • Mar 06, 2022 06:44 AM IST

    IND vs PAK Live Updates: First boundary!

Now that the focus is slowly shifting towards the ODIs with the World Cup lined up next year at home, captain Rohit, Kohli and Rahul are back in the mix. India have pretty much made their stance clear about having Dhawan in this format, meaning there was no space for Gill in the XI, not even in the squad for the Bangladesh tour despite having a pretty decent outing against New Zealand. Former India opener Aakash Chopra has a problem with that.
