Javeria scored the highest individual score by a Pakistan batsman in Women's T20I

India are on a roll having convincingly won their first two matches, including against arch-rivals Pakistan two days ago.

The Indian women's cricket team takes on Ireland women's cricket team in the third group-league match of the ICC Women's World T20 at the Providence Stadium in Guyana wherein a win would guarantee the Women in Blue a semi-final berth.

India face the other unbeaten side in Group B, Australia, on Saturday to determine who will finish top.

Things look good for India, especially with New Zealand losing two in two, but they must guard against complacency. The India-Ireland live streaming will take place on Hotstar.

Only two players reached double figures as Ireland closed on 93-8 and they remain winless from three games.

French govt slams Trump for mocking Macron on Paris attacks anniversary
Trump appeared to brush off a piece of dandruff off Macron's shoulder during a meeting in the White House in April. The remarks were seen by many as a direct challenge to Trump, who has openly identified himself as a nationalist.

For Pakistan, Sandhu picked up two wickets for eight runs with former captain Sana Mir, Aiman Anwer and Aliya Riaz each chipping in with two wickets each to give Pakistan their first victory in the tournament. In the first game against New Zealand, as the team tried to put up a very big total, they sent in the pinch hitters and Raj didn't get to bat.

In the bowling department, she will be pleased by her pint-sized trump card, Poonam Yadav who is the leading wicket-taker in T20I in 2018 with 32 wickets breezing past Shadab Khan of the men's game who has 28.

Put in to bat, India got off to a steady 67-run start from Mithali and Smriti Mandhana (33 off 29 balls; 4X4, 6X1) before the southpaw once again departed after getting a decent start.

Ireland cricket is known for its fighting abilities and taking them lightly will not be the way to go for India, with qualification to the last-four knocking on their doors.

The ICC Women's World T20 fixture between India and Ireland is being telecast on Star Sports 1 and 1 HD, Hindi 1 and Hindi 1 HD and Tamil 1. India won their first two matches of the tournament against New Zealand and Pakistan respectively and will look to seal a place in the final four with a win today.
