Time for the Post-match Presentation!

Winifred Duraisingam, Malaysia skipper:
Surely, I would expect a better performance. But I know the girls will come back stronger in the next games. We know where we are lacking. We have a young bunch here. Their energy levels were superb

Bismah Maroof, Pakistan skipper: We can be more clinical with the ball. Yes of course, both the fielding and bowling can be more disciplined. It is our first match, we tried a different combination. The openers played really well and it was good to spend some time in the middle
Pakistan Women win by 9 wickets.

Pakistan Women: 61/1 (9.0)
Sidra Ameen 31 (23) | Mahirah Ismail 1/8 (2.0)


A convincing win for them to start their Asia Cup campaign, chased this down with more than half the overs left with the loss of just one wicket. 
The openers came out with just one thing in their mind, that was to have fun. Ameen scored a brilliant 31 off 23 with 5 boundaries, Muneeba helped her with 21 runs off her bat. The captain, Maroof came in finished of the game. 

A lot of learnings for Malaysian team today, only a wicket taken by Ismail. Nothing else to celebrate in this innings, they fielded well though, diving around to stop certain boundaries.
