Sidra Ameen scored Pakistan’s first-ever century in a Women’s World Cup match, but the team was defeated. But the opener’s efforts were in vain, as Pakistan progressed from 183/2 to 188/7 before being restricted to 225/9.
“It’s quite difficult to digest. We lost the game due to some poor middle-order shooting “Bisma Maroof, Pakistan’s captain, stated.
“Ameen was having a good game, but she was disappointed that she didn’t finish it. We should have chased it, but our shot selection failed us.” She concluded.
