2nd Innings Summary

In reply to the massive chase, team UAE’s skipper Theertha Satish started off with a flyer as she scored 16 runs off 4 balls but then her cameo came to an end when Shabnam got her wicket on the 5th ball she faced which puts up a massive dent in team UAE hopes to achieve this massive total. The good thing about team India was they kept getting wickets on a consistent basis and never let any other player look settled as players like Lavanya Keny, Samaira Dharnidharka, Rinitha Rajith & Mahika Gaur never got going at any point in time and couldn’t able to match up with the required run rate.
