Sana Mir starred with a five-wicket haul as Pakistan Women defeated Scotland Women by six wickets in the 20th match of ICC Women's World Cup Qualifier in Colombo to progress to the Super Six stage.

Scotland opted to bat first on winning the toss. Mir (5-14) and Nashra Sandhu (3-13) picked wickets at regular intervals leaving only Kathryn Bryce (15), Elizabeth Priddle (12) and Katie McGill (11) managing scores of double figures leaving Scotland dismissed for 91 runs.

In the chase, even though, Nahida Khan (20) and Nain Abidi (21) gave a solid start of 40 runs, Kirstie Gordon (4-29) struck four times in quick succession, leaving Pakistan in a spot of bother at 55 for four.

However, Javeria Khan (35 not out) and Rabiya Shah (16 not out) ensured they saw the team through the chase with six wickets in hand.

Mir was awarded the player of the match for her five-wicket haul as Pakistan ended the first round with a second position in Group B.
