India thrash Pakistan in World Cup opener - Sathish - 03-07-2009

NEW Delhi: Indian bowlers displayed brilliant performance to beat an over-powered Pakistan in the first match of the Women's World Cup at Bradman Oval in Australia on Saturday.

India elected to field first after winning the toss and dismissed their neighbour in only 57 runs. India chased the target easily without losing any wicket in ten overs. Anagha Deshpande (26) and Anjum Chopra (17) easly took India to a comfortable victory after the triumphant show of their bowlers.

Among the Indian bowlers, Rumeli Dhar was the leading wicket taker who scalped three wickets giving away only seven runs. Amita Sharma and Priyanka Roy took two wickets respectively. Jhulan Goswami and Gouher Sultana dismissed one wicket apiece.

India, who made it to the final in the last edition, when they lost to eventual champions Australia, seem to be determined this time to go the distance.

India, led by pacer Jhulan Goswami, have been clubbed with two-time champions England, Sri Lanka and Pakistan in Group B. Both England and India have 100 per cent win records against the other two teams in the group.

Group A features Australia, West Indies, South Africa and New Zealand with the defending champions clear favourites for the title.
