PAK vs IND: Bowled some bad balls and gave away easy runs, says Pakistan skipper Bismah Maroof
PAK vs IND: Pakistan captain Bismah Maroof expressed disappointment after her team was hammered by India at the Bay Oval in the ongoing ICC Women’s 50-over World Cup on Sunday.
India defeated Pakistan by 107 runs in the fourth game of the 2017 ICC Women’s 50-over World Cup, with to fighting knocks from Sneh Rana and Pooja Vastrakar and all-round bowling performances.
“We bowled well in the middle. We were in the game. And we bowled some loose balls and Sneh as well as Pooja played well. Credit to them. We bowled some bad balls and gave away easy runs. We were sloppy on the field as well,” said Bismah Maroof in a post-match presentation.
“I think we were doing well and leaked some runs. Didn’t capitalize on the momentum. We need to focus more on batting as we didn’t play some good shots today,” she added.
Pooja Vastrakar (67), Smriti Mandhana (52) and Sneh Rana (53*) had earlier led India to a total of 244/7.
For the seventh wicket, Vastrakar and Rana put on a 122-run partnership. India scored extra runs in the final five overs to push the total above the 240-run barrier.
On Thursday, India will face New Zealand in the tournament.
