Harmanpreet Kaur surpasses MS Dhoni in T20Is to register an incredible feat
In Group A clash between the two teams started with a few rain stoppages. However, it was India that won the toss and put Pakistan to bat first.
The match was reduced to 18 overs for each side due to rain. India's women bowled exceptionally well and bowled the Pakistani team for 99 runs. Then, coming out to bat, India made a mockery of the target and chased it down comprehensively in just 11.4 overs.
With this win, Harmanpreet Kaur has broken the record of former Indian skipper MS Dhoni in the shorter format. Harmanpreet has led the Indian women's team in 71 games as a captain and she has registered 42 wins along with 26 defeats, and three games ended with no results.
On the other hand, the 2007 World Cup winning captain has led India in 72 games, registering 41 victories, 28 defeats, and one match ended as a tie and two games ended with no result.
Virat Kohli, who led India in 50 games, has 30 wins and 16 defeats under his belt as a captain, while two games ended in a tie and two ended with no results.
Earlier in the match, India dismissed Pakistan's women for 99 runs. Sneh Rana and Radha Yadav picked up two wickets each. In reply, Smirit Mandhana hit the opposition bowlers to all parts of the ground and returned unbeaten on 63 runs off 43 balls, including eight fours and three maximums.
The left-hander helped India register their first win in the CWG 2022 after facing a close loss in the first game against Australia's women. The Women in Blue will face off against Barbados in their next encounter on Wednesday at 10:30 PM IST.
