NEW DELHI: India put its Women's Under-19 T20 World Cup campaign back on track in Group 1 Super Six stage with a commanding seven-wicket win against Sri Lanka on Sunday. Following India's seven-wicket defeat against Australia on Saturday, ITS bowlers gave a superb performance, restricting Sri Lanka Under-19 to just 59 runs in the allotted 20 overs.
Sixteen-year-old leg-spinner Parshavi Chopra was the pick of the Indian bowlers, grabbing four wickets, while left-arm spinner Mannat Kashyap took two wickets as the duo ran through the opposition batting line-up.
India then scored the winning target in 7.2 overs for the loss of skipper Shafali Verma, wicket-keeper Richa Ghosh and Shweta Sehrawat. Soumya Tiwari (28 not out) then smashed five boundaries off just 15 deliveries as India made a mockery of the paltry total.
