Breezy half-centuries from Nat Sciver-Brunt (81* off 40) and Danni Wyatt (59 off 33) helped England make light work of Pakistan as they defeated the women in green by a hefty margin of 114 runs to end the group stages of the 2023 Women’s T20 World Cup unbeaten. Defending a formidable score of 213, Katherine Sciver-Brunt (2-14) and Charlotte Dean (2-28) derailed Pakistan’s chase to restrict the Asian side to just 99/9 from their 20 overs.
Already eliminated from the semifinals race and missing the services of their regular captain Bismah Maroof who is injured, Pakistan just didn’t show up with the bat. Tuba Hassan dominated the eighth-wicket stand of 37 and struck a couple of boundaries and the solitary six of Pakistan’s chase in her 20-ball 28, but her top-scoring effort was inadequate to even pose a threat as Pakistan huffed and puffed to 99/9 in reply.
Brief Scores: England 213/5 in 20 overs (Nat Sciver-Brunt 81*, Danni Wyatt 59, Amy Jones 47; Fatima Sana 2-44) beat Pakistan 99/9 in 20 overs (Tuba Hassan 28; Katherine Sciver-Brunt 2-14, Charlotte Dean 2-28) by 114 runs
A stunning performance with the bat! 💪
We become the first team to pass 200 at a Women's T20 World Cup! 🔥🔥🔥
