ICC Women’s World T20 New Zealand vs Pakistan: Clinical Six Wicket Win For White Ferns

By on May 11, 2010

New Zealand Women 71 for 4 (Devine 23) beat Pakistan Women 65 for 9 (Browne 4-15) by six wickets…

The White Ferns outclassed Pakistan to go through the group stage unbeaten in the Women’s ICC World Twenty20 at Warner Park, St Kitts.

An economical opening spell by spinner Erin Bermingham and seamer Sian Ruck ensured the White Ferns held a firm grip on the game from the very start after Pakistan won the toss and chose to bat.

Strike bowler Nicola Browne then ripped out both openers to initiate a collapse that saw Pakistan reduced to 30 for seven.

Browne snared two more wickets to finish with excellent figures of four for 15 while Kate Broadmore, Lucy Doolan and Sophie Devine chimed in with one apiece.

Tail-ender Sania Khan managed to hit Pakistan’s top score of 15 at the end of the innings as they struggled through to 65 for nine.

The White Ferns only needed 8.2 overs to complete the rout but did lose the wickets of Suzie Bates (4), Aimee Watkins (15), Sophie Devine (23) and Rachel Priest (2) along the way.

Sara McGlashan hit an aggressive unbeaten 16 off 13 deliveries to seal the win.

Speaking after the match White Ferns captain Watkins said, “It’s obviously good to know we’ve finished top of the group but to be facing West Indies is going to be a challenge in the semi-finals in St Lucia.

“They are the kind of team that are so unpredictable at Twenty20, one day they could make 80 all out and another 180 for four so I’m not taking the upcoming fixture lightly.

“Hopefully they’ve watched today’s game and seen what kind of a bowling attack we’ve got in our side.”
