India and Pakistan will lock horns with each other in the fifth match of the Commonwealth Games 2022 on Sunday (July 31) at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham. Both teams have had an underwhelming start to their campaign in the multi-nation competition, losing their individual first matches. A win will be key for both sides to be in the race for the semi-finals.
India had their moments against Australia but failed to cash in on the clutch moments. Harmanpreet Kaur and Shafali Verma played crucial knocks to help India post 154, before Renuka Thakur’s fiery spell reduced Australia to 49/5. However, the spinners failed to maintain the pressure as Ashleigh Gardner walked away with the game.
India will hope they don’t repeat the same pressure against Pakistan and fire in unison to keep their hope alive in the competition. Pakistan, on the other hand, produced a good fight against Barbados but fell short by 15 runs. Led by Bismah Maroof, this side boast a lot of potential and will hope to come all guns blazing against the arch rivals.
