Sana Mir fifer takes Pakistan to Super Sixes

Sana Mir fifer takes Pakistan to Super Sixes

COLOMBO: Skipper Sana Mir led from the front to set up Pakistan's six-wicket win in their final group encounter against Scotland and advance to the Super Sixes of 2017 ICC Women's World Cup Qualifier.

Mir (five for 14) and Nashra Sandhu (three for 13) ran through the top and middle order to bundle out Scotland for 91 on the first ball of the 40th over. Only three batters got into double figures - the best being Kathryn Bryce's 15 - and the highest contribution, ironically, came in the form of 21 extras. Ghulam Fatima and Javeria Khan bagged a wicket apiece to wrap up the tail.

Nahida Khan and Nain Abidi kickstarted the chase with 40-run opening stand before losing four wickets in a cluster - all to the medium-pacer Kirstie Gordon, for the addition of only 15 runs.

However, Javeria Khan and Rabiya Shah stemmed the collapse and steered Pakistan home with an unbroken stand of 39 for the fifth wicket.

Javeria hit an unbeaten 35 off 43 balls while Rabiya provided a valuable support with 16 not out to help Pakistan win the match with more than 22 overs to spare.

Brief scores: Scotland 91 in 39.1 overs (Kathryn Bryce 15, Sana Mir 5-14, Nashra Sandhu 3-13) lost to Pakistan 94/4 in 27.1 overs (Javeria Khan 35*, Nain Abidi 21; Kirstie Gordon 4-29) by six wickets.
