Pakistan beat Sri Lanka by 23 runs in the Women's Twenty20 Asia Cup at Kinrara Academy Oval today (Wednesday).
Batting first, Pakistan put up a target of 137 runs which included 60 not out by Captain Bismah Maroof and 38 off 34 balls by Nahida Khan.
Pakistan lost their opener Muneeba Ali early in the innings, but Maroof's seven fours along with Khan's three fours and one six helped put up a formidable 60-run second-wicket partnership.
In reply, Sri Lanka could only manage 113-9 in the 20 overs as off-spinner Nida Dar led the demolition job, getting out three of the top five Sri Lanka batters.
Pakistan and Sri Lanka have both now won two of their three games.
Pakistan's next game will be against Malaysia tomorrow (Thursday).
Pakistan have twice reached the finals of Women's Asia Cup.
Women's T20 Asia Cup Tournament is being held in Malaysia, under the aegis of the Asian Cricket Council.
