Women's Twenty20 Asia Cup: India defeat Sri Lanka by 7 wickets

India cricket team beat Sri Lanka by 7 wickets in Women's Twenty20 Asia Cup in Kuala Lumpur today. 

After two facile victories over Thailand and Malaysia, India were outclassed in their last game by Bangladesh yesterday.  

India today bounced back with a comprehensive seven-wicket win to record their maiden international win over their neighbours across any format. With this win, India keep alive their hopes for a final berth in the tournament.
Left -arm spinner Ekta Bisht claimed 2 Sri Lankan wickets and also effected two run outs. Jhulan Goswami, Anuja Patil  and Poonam Yadav  took one wicket each to restrict Sri Lanka to 107 for 7.
Chasing a target of 108 , India  rode on some useful contributions by the top and middle order to overhaul the target, reaching 110 for 3 with seven balls to spare.   Opener Mithali Raj scored 23 and skipper Harmanpreet Kaur cracked 24 in 25 balls. 

V Krishnamurthy and Anuja Patil shared a 40 run unbeaten partnership  off 32 balls to take India to victory.
India, Pakistan and Bangladesh currently have six points each from four games. But, India are leading the standings with a net run-rate of 2.709. On Saturday,  India play their last game while Bangaldesh will face Malaysia.
