India produced an all-round performance to defeat arch-rivals Pakistan by 7 wickets in the ICC Women's World T20 on Sunday. Chasing a modest target of 134 runs, India began their chase on the unusual scoreline of 10/0 after Pakistan were given five penalty runs twice for their batters running on the pitch. According to International Cricket Council (ICC), Pakistan's batters Nida Dar and Bismah Maroof, who both hit half-centuries, were initially warned by the umpires after the 13th over for running on the danger area.

"On the first ball of the 18th over, Pakistan were penalised for the first time, before being hit with another five-run penalty on the last ball of the innings," the statement added.

In the post-match interview, Pakistan skipper Javeria Khan said that it was an unprofessional behaviour and her side should seriously work on it because it can cost them the game.

"I had a chat with the umpires and they told me that they warned the player thrice, and after warning three times, they gave the penalty," Javeria Khan said.

"It's unprofessionalism on our part that after being warned, we were still on the danger area. This is an area we should look at, because it has not happened the first time, it's (happened) in the past in the Sri Lanka series as well. We should seriously look into this because these are the things that cost you the game," she added.

Pakistan are currently third in the Group B with two losses from their first two matches. They will next face Ireland on November 13 at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.
