Why India started the chase against Pakistan at 10/0?

India and Pakistan women have played each other 10 times with India winning eight times and Pakistan the other two.

After opting to bowl, India struck in the first over as Ayesha Zafar was caught at slip off Arundhati Reddy for a six-ball duck before two disastrous run outs left Pakistan 30-3. Bismah Maroof and Nida Dar scored fifties after they were reduced to 30/3.

Mithali anchored the run chase with a 47-ball 56, which included seven fours, in the Group B match which was marred by unprecedented docking of 10 penalty runs for Pakistan on account of their batswomen running on the danger area of the pitch. Sharma wrote: "What a start to women's t20 cricket World Cup.Brilliant batting by @JemiRodrigues to keep things calm in the middle & supporting @ImHarmanpreet who played an unbelievable knock to become 1st Indian women to score t20 hundred". India had won the toss and elected to field first.

Preview: After a near ideal beginning, the Indian women's team will be overwhelming favourites against arch-rivals Pakistan in its second Group B encounter of the ICC World T20 on Sunday. The 18-year-old, appearing in her maiden ICC tournament, initiated India's recovery from the early jolts.

Pakistan were on the ropes but India allowed them to gain grounds by having three dropped catches.

The Pakistani duo began to hit boundaries at regular intervals and both reached to their fifties towards the end of the innings.
