Pakistan Women clinch T20 series against Sri Lanka
After Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bowl first, Pakistan were able to post 113-6 driven by run-a-ball 38 by in-form Javeria Khan. It started steadily enough for Pakistan, with Sidra Ameen and Nahida Khan putting up 33 for the first wicket. It took them seven overs to score the runs before Nahida became the first to fall, to Sugandika Kumari, for a 23-ball 19.
Chasing a modest target of 114, the Sri Lankan team could muster just 75-8 as Pakistan skipper Bismah Maroof took two wickets for 14 runs, whereas Sana Mir and Diana Baig claimed a scalp each; the rest of the dismissals were all run outs.
The series victory was supplemented by some standout performances from the Pakistan side. Javeria Khan was the top scorer for Pakistan with 93 runs in three matches, while Diana Baig was the top wicket-taker.
