After choosing to beat first, Sri Lanka managed to score 122 for six in their 20 overs, thanks to a 50-point partnership between Harshitha Samarawickrama (35, 41b, 1×4) and Nilakshi de Silva (14, 27b ) for the third wicket. Opener Anushka Sanjeewani was another notable run-getter with 26-for-21, including a four and a six.
Nashra Sandhu was the winning team’s most successful bowler with match numbers of 4-0-17-3. Spinners Sadia Iqbal and Nida and fast right-hand man Aiman Anwer each won a wicket.
Chasing 123 runs to win, the opening pair of Muneeba Ali and Sidra Amin provided a strong 31 run start for the innings. But Pakistan continued to lose wickets at the crucial moment as they never had the momentum to chase.
Needing nine runs from the final over, and with three needed to win the final ball, Nida Dar was exhausted trying to take a brace, as Pakistan managed to score 121 for six in their 20 overs.
Earlier in the day, India sealed their place in the final with a 74-point victory over the Thai women.
