After succumbing to their third successive defeat of the tournament, the most recent being against Thailand (by nine wickets), Malaysia Women would be looking to salvage their lost pride, when they take on Pakistan Women on Thursday, June 7th. In their last fixture against Thailand, Malaysia could not muster 8-36 in 20 overs, which was chased down with ease by the Thai Women in nine overs.
Their opponents in Pakistan managed to shrug off the drubbing they’d received at the hands of Bangladesh Women and pulled off a comfortable 23-run win over Sri Lanka Women. Riding on the duo of Nahida Khan (38) and a scintillating 60 from skipper Maroof, PK-W racked up 4-136 in 20 overs, which was defended by ease thanks to a five-wicket-haul by Nida Dar (5-21). With four points in three matches, PK-W would be looking to ride on the winning momentum in a bid to garner their hopes of making it to the finals.
