Batting first, India lost Smiriti Mandhana (13) early in the fifth over. But the Indian women continued their dominance with Shafali’s 28-ball 42.

Shafali smashed five boundaries and a maximum during her 42-ball knock before getting dismissed in the 10th over.

Jemimah Rodrigues, who struggled early but found her flow later in the innings, fell to a catch at long-on for 27 before Tippoch had Richa Ghosh lbw for 2.

Then, Harmanpreet Kaur ( 36 off 30) and Pooja Vastrakar’s (17 0ff 13) helped India to post 148 for 6.

Chasing 174, Thailand had a terrible start as Deepti’s triple strike reduced them to 18 for 3 in the powerplay.

A 42-run stand for the fifth wicket between Naruemol Chaiwai and Nattaya Boochatham helped Thailand recover briefly, but Sneh Rana trapped the latter leg before and triggered a collapse.

Renuka Singh and Shafali also picked a wicket as Thailand was eventually restricted to 74 for 9.
