Pakistan Women lead Group B table on ICC World Cup Qualifiers

Pakistan Women have managed to mark the summit of their Group B table, after handing over an impressive 8 wickets rout to the Ireland Women, during the competition’s 6th game on Tuesday, November 15, 2011, at the Narayanganj Osmani Stadium, in Fatullah, Bangladesh.

The victory comes as the side’s second consecutive one, since their tournament opening outing against the Bangladeshi hosts, where Pakistan Women sealed a 73 runs triumph, complements to the team’s off-break bowler, Nida Dar, who bagged an imposing haul of 4-wickets, reducing the opponent’s batting roster to fall short of the chase.

On the other hand, Pakistan’s top order batter, Bismah Maroof, came out with her share, after batting a top score of 79 runs, leading her roster to pile up 197 runs, after losing all wickets in 50 overs.

As for the squad’s recent fixture against team Ireland, Pakistan Women, under the imperative Captaincy of Sana Mir, came out with another impressive show, under each department, snatching a worthy win at the Fatullah venue.

The bout began after Ireland’s Skipper, Isobel Joyce, won the toss and regrettably opted to bat first, sending in top order batters, Cecelia Joyce and Clare Shillington, against Pakistan’s new ball bowlers, Qanita Jalil and Masooma Junaid.

Unfortunately for the batting side, Ireland lost Shillington in the opening over of the game, thanks to Qanita’s well constructed delivery, forcing the batter to produce an easy catch for fielder, Kainat Imtiaz.

The top order batters managing to stall the early session for past the ten overs mark, Pakistan Women came out with another swift blow, snatching some consecutive Irish wickets, thanks to the prime damage delivered by the side’s orthodox bowler, Sadia Yousuf, who led the squad to wrap-up the opponent’s line-up, snatching a superb haul of 4 wickets – leading the Ireland Women to post an accessible chase of 141 runs.

With a fair task ahead of them, Pakistan’s opening order responded with a steady batting stance, earning an tally of runs, after losing Qanita Jalil in the 10th over.

Suffering their second and final loss on the line-up, the match-winning partnership of Javeria Khan and Bismah finally steered the Ladies in Green to earn an 8 wickets triumph, in 32.2 overs.
