BOWLED! The captain, Sana Mir, steps up and hits the stumps! Taylor gone for 8 off 12 balls. England Women 117/3 from 16.5 overs.
 
STUMPED! England Women losing wickets here trying to accelerate. 119/4 after 17.4 overs.
 
With 2 overs to go, Pakistan Women have slowed England's progress. 122/4 (18.0 overs)
 
Sadia Yousuf bowls an excellent 19th over! 3 runs and 1 wicket! Will it be the over that won the match? England 125/5 with 1 over to go

On another note, go Pakistan! Seems like it will be a tough chase though.
 
Good job on restricting them after that mammoth opening partnership.
 
England Women finish on 133/6. Disappointing after being 102/0 in 13 overs. Pakistan bowling led to 31/6 in the last 7 overs.
 
Disappointing loss for Pak women by 43 runs

Bowled out for 90 in the final over

Javeria Khan (23 runs) and Sana Mir with 2wkts were only performances to talk about

England Women start ICC World T20 campaign with victory over Pakistan.

England Women beat Pakistan Women by 43 runs in their first group match of the ICC World T20 at Galle International Cricket Stadium today.

England were put into bat and made 133-6 from their 20 overs. Laura Marsh hit seven boundaries and two maximums on the way to a career best T20 score of 54 in a 102-run partnership with Charlotte Edwards. Edwards posted 45 including five boundaries as the pair attacked from the first ball. England looked to accelerate in the final five overs but in doing so lost wickets in the middle order.

England’s spinners once again dominated to bowl Pakistan out for 90 in the final over. Holly Colvin took career best figures of 4-9 and Danielle Hazell took 2-19. Player of the match Marsh also contributed with a wicket maiden in her first over.

England Women will play India in their second group match at Galle International Cricket Stadium on Saturday at 1.30pm local time.

Player of the match Laura Marsh said: “We were pleased to get off to a good start today. We played positive cricket and that’s how we play our game.

“It’s always good to contribute, we look to go out there and hit boundaries and Charlotte and I did that. We’ve worked hard as a team on knocking the ball into the outfield even when there isn’t so much pace on it, so we are not concerned about facing spin.

“All the bowlers bowled well today and there was another good team performance in the field. We’re all happy with our positive start to the competition and look forward to playing India on Saturday.”
 
Our ladies' team is pretty good! Could teach the blokes a thing or two about consistency and a winning mentality!!

and spin! Apparently they throttled Pak batting with their spin.

Apologies, but I just have to, I don't know why, I just have to:

How many of these ladies are English? ;-)
