Good news for the England’s people because the England’s women cricket team win the match against Pakistan. They sprang back from their opening defeat by Indian to make their highest Women’s World Cup total in a devastating win over Pakistan at Leicester.
The hero of the England’s Women cricket team is the Natalie Sciver hit 137 off 92 balls and the Heather Knight 106 off 109 balls. They make their maiden one-day international centuries in a total of 377 in the fall of 7 wickets at Grace Road. When they put on 213, Danielle Wyatt made a brusque unbeaten 42.
Well, it was the good fortune of the England team that Duckworth-Lewis-Stern System is used because when Pakistan was 107 at the fall of three wickets from 29.2 overs the rain came.
Let’s flash back at the game. Pakistan won the toss but because of the shower, the game delayed the start by half an hour. The opener of the England’s team Beaumont dropped on the first ball and they showed the signs of the nerves as they lost to Indian on Sunday. And they have made the name in the game of cricket.
The bad luck is that Pakistan only have two seamers available and a leg spinner Bismah Maroof off the field and she also has the hand injury. All these make a little margin of error to the Pakistan captain Sana Mir. And she was also let down by the Pakistan’s poor ground fielding.
At the England’s side, when they are 42-2, the two strong batswomen come on the crease and they were Sciver and Knight who make the success and triumph for the England and brings smiles on the faces of their fans.
The winning captain Heather Knight said: “Nat deserved the player of the match award. It took the pressure off me and we had a very convincing win.” “I was short of cricket coming into the tournament, so I’m pleased to be back playing again. We don’t really do targets too much, we just try to get as many runs as we can.”
And the Pakistan captain Sana Mir said: “We disappointed a lot of fans today as we were not able to play to the standard we set in the first game, but all credit to the England batsmen for the way they punished the bad balls.”
