A thrilling game will be played between cricket rivals Pakistan and India on Thursday which will decide the 7-8th position in the ICC Women’s World Cup, reported Times of India on Wednesday.

Pakistan crashed out of the ICC’s Women World Cup yesterday after they were beaten by South Africa in a crucial match. The team had failed to chase a target of 208 runs and lost all the wickets for 81 runs.

The match, which took place in Cuttack, India, was Pakistan’s third defeat at the World Cup.

India was also thrown out of the World Cup by Sri Lanka with a 138-run defeat on Tuesday.

Earlier, in the wake of protests and threats by India’s right-wing parties, the Orissa Cricket Association (OCA) was forced to arrange separate accommodation for the Pakistan women’s team inside the Barbati Stadium in Cuttack, after five-star hotels showed reluctance to provide hospitality.

    “A thrilling game will be played between cricket rivals Pakistan and India on Thursday which will decide the 7-8th position in the ICC Women’s World Cup, reported Times of India on Wednesday.”
    Pakistan and India planned intelligently to lose all previous matches just to ensure a thrilling game tomorrow.
