The Indian batting side claimed the win with opener Smriti Mandhana who had scored 38 off 40 balls along with the captain Harmanpreet Kaur who scored 34 runs in 49 balls. Initially, India had a bad start as Mithali Raj and Deepti Sharma were out with only five runs on board by the third over, but with less runs to chase, India played calmly.
Mandhana and Harmanpreet collectively added 65 runs, with Mandhana getting out with only three runs to win. This was India's fourth win in the five matches played, wherein the only defeat was to Bangladesh, but India bounced back by winning against Sri Lanka followed with Pakistan.
