ICC Women's World T20 2016 Qualifier, Sylhet

India Women secured qualification for the ICC Women's World Twenty20 2016 as they beat arch-rivals Pakistan Women by six runs in a tense encounter in Sylhet.

India, who will host the 2016 event, ensured they will not have to go through a qualification tournament, by defending a score of 106 for seven.

Pakistan closed on 100 for nine, meaning India finished the tournament with three wins in a row, having ended the group stage with victories against Bangladesh and the West Indies.

Once again, Mithali Raj top scored, this time with 39, as India lost a clatter of wickets late on after Poonam Raut (17) and Smriti Mandhana (22) had given them a solid start.

Sania Khan (3-15) and Asmavia Iqbal (2-16) bowled well to give their batting line-up a chance.

However, they were unable to take it, falling short as Soniya Dabir led the way for India with three for 14.

Nahida Khan (26), Nida Dar (24 not out) and Sana Mir (11) were the only players to reach double figures as although Pakistan rallied impressively from 32 for four to run India close, they couldn't close out the game.

Poonam Yadav (2-25), Sravanthi Naidu (2-12) and Shubhlakshmi Sharma (1-21) also took wickets.
