The Asia Cup is on and the match between two top-notch rivals, India Women and Pakistan Women, was held in which India went all-out and lost the match.
The Pakistan Women’s team came from a defeat by a team like Thailand and defeated tournament favorite India Women and showed that they are back in the tournament.
Whether it is men’s or women’s cricket, India and Pakistan have always been rivals and are always in the spotlight of any multi-nation cricket tournament.
As the teams have not played any bilateral series for a long time, fans can only see both teams against each other in a multi-nation cricket tournament.
On March 19, 2016, Indian women lost a match against Pakistan women for the first time since the 2016 T20 Women’s World Cup.
If we see the tally of India Women and Pakistan Women facing off in T-20, including today’s match, there are 13 matches in which just 3 matches are won by Pakistan Women and 10 matches are won by India Women.
So, India Women have the upper hand in the tally. Today’s match has broken India’s streak of five consecutive T20 wins against Pakistan.
