ICC Women’s World Cup | Pooja Vastrakar and Sneh Rana score partnership world record 122 points against Pakistan

Indian Women are playing Pakistani Women in the ongoing ICC Women’s World Cup and India have lost six wickets for a total of 114 runs at bat first. Pooja Vastrakar and Sneh Rana put together a world record 122 points to take India to a 244/7 aggregate to set up a decent goal against the opposition.

The ICC Women’s World Cup has started and India are playing Pakistan in their first tournament. India opted to bat first winning the toss and made a strong start to the set as they were 96/1 in 21 overs. Smriti Mandhana scored 52 runs while Deepti Sharma was dismissed on 40 runs later and there was a steady drop in wickets after that. India were at 114/6 and were in danger of putting a low total.

However, Sneh Rana and Pooja Vastrakar turned things around with their partnership. Rana scored an undefeated 53 on 48 boundary-strewn balls and Vastrakar played a 67-point hit on 59 balls. The two have scored 122 runs together, which is the highest partnership for the seventh wicket in the Women’s World Cup and ODIs. The previous record was set by New Zealanders NJ Browne and SJ Tsukigawa of 104 runs against England in 2007.

Pakistani spinner Nida Dar revealed that the ball came well into the bat as the wicket was flat.

“It wasn’t a good start for me, I want to attack the hitters and maintain my consistency, but I think I took it out, 2 for 45 was pretty good. I want to play depending on the situations, the target is chaseable, the wicket looks flat and the ball hits the bat well. The partnership was good, we can learn from them, we also have good hitters on our side. My responsibility is to build partnerships with others batters,” Nida Dar said at the innings break.
