The match outcome ensured that both India and Pakistan would progress to the semi-finals. However, it was India who claimed the top spot in the table, thanks to their superior run-rate over Pakistan. This sets the stage for exciting semi-final encounters on Monday, June 19, with India set to face Sri Lanka and Pakistan squaring off against Bangladesh. In anticipation of unpredictable weather conditions, a reserve day, June 20, has been scheduled for the semi-finals.

Cricket enthusiasts and supporters of both teams eagerly await the final, which is slated to take place on Wednesday, June 21. It promises to be a thrilling showdown between the top emerging women’s teams in Asia.

Prior to the rain-affected match against India, Pakistan had a victorious outing against Nepal at the Tin Kwong Road Recreation Ground. The spin duo of Syeda Aroob Shah and Tuba Hassan showcased their skills, dismantling the Nepalese batting lineup. Their combined efforts resulted in two wickets each, ultimately securing a nine-run victory for Pakistan. Nepal struggled to build partnerships, with only Kabita Kunwar and Kabita Joshi managing to reach double figures.

In their opening match, Pakistan faced Hong Kong, only to see it abandoned due to rain. Despite the disappointment of two washouts, the team remains optimistic and determined to make their mark in the tournament.

The Pakistan squad, led by Fatima Sana, consists of talented players such as Shawaal Zulfiqar, Syeda Aroob Shah, and Tuba Hassan, among others. Supported by personnel including Aisha Jalil as the manager, Mohsin Kamal as the head coach, and a dedicated team of coaches, analysts, and physiotherapists, the squad is well-prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.

As the tournament reaches its climax, fans eagerly await thrilling cricketing action from these emerging women’s teams.
