The rest of the batting struggled to score and Thailand could manage only 69 for five in their 20 overs.

In their chase, Veda Krishnamurthy (35) and Sabbhineni Meghana (29 not out) put India on course for a win with their 49-run stand. Even though, Krishnamurthy fell, Meghana ensured she saw through the chase with nine wickets in hand.

But once they fell, apart from Prasadani Weerakkody (21), the rest of the batting capitulated and were restricted to 112 for eight in their 20 overs.

In the chase, Javeria Khan (56 not out) looked solid and with support from Bismah Maroof (17) and Nain Abidi (28 not out) ensured Pakistan completed the chase in 18.2 overs with eight wickets in hand.

India continue to top the table while Pakistan are placed second.
