India Women 40 for 1 (Meghana 20*, Vastrakar 12*) beat Thailand Women 37 (Rana 3-9, Gayakwad 2-8) by nine wickets
Thailand started off cautiously, moving to just 16 for 1 at the end of the powerplay. The collapse began with Naruemol Chaiwai’s run-out in the seventh over following which Thailand lost their last eight wickets for just 17 runs.
Thailand openers cautious
Thailand openers Nannapat Koncharoenkai and Natthakan Chantham started off watchfully as Deepti straightaway found sharp turn, and took just one run off the first over. Koncharoenkai broke the pressure with a drive to the boundary off quick Meghna Singh, who was swapped for Renuka Singh for this match, and in the following over Chantham brought out the sweep and got a boundary against Deepti, showing positive intent.
But a couple of balls later, Chantham was deceived by the turn and was bowled.
