Women’s Asia Cup: Dominant India Women crush Thailand Women by 74 runs to enter final | Cricket News – Times of India

SYLHET: A dominant India crushed minnows Thailand by 74 runs to storm into the final and remain on course for a record-extending seventh women's Asia Cup title here on Thursday. The win over Thailand took India to their eighth straight Asia Cup final -- four each in ODI and T20 formats. Before 2012, the tournament was a 50-over-a-side affair. The semifinal contest against Thailand was always expected to be a cakewalk for India and it turned out to be so. India posted 148 for six after being sent in to bat and then restricted Thailand to 74 for 9 in the lop-sided contest. India play Sri Lanka in the final on Saturday. Sri Lanka eked out a thrilling one run win over Pakistan in the second semifinal. 𝐈𝐍𝐓𝐎 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐅𝐈𝐍𝐀𝐋 🙌 🙌A superb bowling performance from #TeamIndia to beat Thailand by 7️⃣4️⃣ ...

Women’s Asia Cup: India eye another crushing win against Thailand on way to final | Cricket News – Times of India

SYLHET: It has been a smooth ride for the mighty Indian team so far and the trend is expected to continue when the sub-continent powerhouse aim to crush minnows Thailand one more time in the Women's Asia Cup semifinal here on Thursday. The last match between two teams had turned out to be a huge mismatch as India had skittled Thailand out for just 37 runs in 15.1 overs to run away with an easy win during the league stage. Thailand would look to do better than their previous batting effort against India after making the Asia Cup semi-final entry for the first time at the expense of hosts defending champions Bangladesh. The Naruemol Chaiwai-led side would hope to prove that their qualification for the tournament was not a fluke. For India, the tournament came as a perfect opportunity to t...

Women’s Asia Cup: India end group league campaign with crushing 9-wicket win over Thailand | Cricket News – Times of India

SYLHET: The Indian bowlers hardly broke sweat to dismiss minnows Thailand for a paltry 37 before knocking off the runs in just six overs with nine wickets in hand to top the seven-team group league in the Women's Asia Cup, here on Monday. The emphatic win was India's fifth victory in six games, with the only defeat coming in a low-scoring match against arch-rivals Pakistan. India have 10 points from six games and are expected to be joined by Pakistan, Sri Lanka and one among Thailand and Bangladesh in the semifinals. Bangladesh have a match left and they need to just win it to enjoy a better net run-rate (+0.423 after 5 games) over Thailand (-0.949 in 6 games).

Asia Cup: Struggling Shafali Verma in focus as India take on Malaysia | Cricket News – Times of India

SYLHET: Shafali Verma couldn't have asked for an easier opponent to regain her mojo as a confident India get ready to maul Malaysia in their second T20 match of the women's Asia Cup here on Monday. The game should serve as net session for Harmanpreet Kaur and Co against a Malaysian side that was thrashed by Pakistan by nine wickets in its opener. After a comfortable win against Sri Lanka, scripted by Jemimah Rodrigues, the less experienced Indian players are expected to get some game time as the team prepares for the T20 World Cup in South Africa early next year. Shafali, who has endured a dismal run, would want to come out all guns blazing and may take this opportunity to try an alternate batting approach as her natural game has not been yielding success off late. The 18-year-old has n...
