Malaysian batters falter in their opening fixture against Pakistan Women

Malaysia Women were asked to bat first. Their batters failed to adapt to the conditions and couldn't get going. Only Wan Julia (11) and Elsa Hunter (29*) got to double digits as the other batters faltered and failed to contribute. As a result, they could only score 57 runs in 20 overs.

Pakistan spinners, in particular, bowled brilliantly and kept constant pressure on the Malaysian batters. Eight of the nine wickets were picked up by spinners.

Muneeba Ali (21*) and Sidra Ameen (31) set a platform for them while chasing to get across the line with 11 overs to spare. They will be hoping to keep up the winning momentum and carry it forward in the next clash.
