India defeats Pakistan in cricket at the Commonwealth Games

India defeated Pakistan’s 99-point total with 38 balls remaining because of the opening batswoman Smriti Mandhana’s 63 from 42 balls.

Pakistan’s innings, which had been shortened to 18 overs at Edgbaston due to rain, ended with the last ball because they were no match for India’s bowling assault.

Sneh Rana, an India spinner, shone in the Group A encounter, recording 2-15.

India recovered from an initial Pool A loss to Australia with a victory on Sunday.

By defeating Barbados in their last group stage encounter on Wednesday, they may advance to the semifinals.
