Pakistan registered their first victory in the Women's World Cup since 2009 and the feat was achieved after the Bismah Maroof-led side defeated the West Indies by eight wickets in a rain-curtailed match on Monday at Seddon Park, Hamilton. Due to persistent rain and then the wet outfield, the game was reduced to 20-overs per side but what followed was a spirited performance by Team Pakistan. West Indies had no answers to what was thrown at them, and in the end, Pakistan walked away with a comfortable victory.
As a result of this win, Team India's path to the semi-finals has also gotten easier and the Mithali Raj-led side needs to win both their games against Bangladesh and South Africa to seal their last-four berth.
Team India will square off against Bangladesh on Tuesday.
