    What and excellent performance by the girls. They deserved to win it specially the batting has to be applauded although they need to work on the fielding a bit.. Sidra and Bisma played some very good shots. Well done ladies and all the best for the last game..!Recommend

    This is the team that we can all be proud of. I watched it and loved every minute of it. My fears are that merit of this team will be corrupted by officials who will select in future their own women or their favorites destroying it as they done to every other national team. We are seeing the twilight of our nation in the winning of our valiant Women. . Recommend
