With Thailand, the team’s bowling skills won the day. The bowlers were at their best despite not having veteran Jhulan Goswami. Mansi Joshi is (who replaced Soni Yadav) back. Yet, it was a good show by the Indian players bagging the best bowler tag for India with 3 wickets. Deepti Sharma, Poonam Yadav and Rajeshwari Gayakwad also took a couple of wickets each.
For India, Harmanpreet Kaur and Thirush Kamini opened the batting lineup. Harmanpreet was bowled for 15 by Thailand skipper Sornnarin Tipoch, but it didn’t affect the team’s mission that much as they achieved the target with 9 wickets and 37.2 overs in hand already. Mithali Raj captained her winning team.
While Thailand’s batting form was poor, India didn’t let that opportunity pass and hammered the team in a 9-wicket win.
India will next play against Ireland at the P Sara Oval on February 10.
