The India Women cricket team has continued their winning streak in the Asia Cup T20, with an emphatic 66-run win over Thailand Women cricket team. Skipper Harmanpreet Kaur was adjudged the player of the match for scoring unbeaten 27 runs off 17 balls and then taking 3 wickets for just 11 runs.

Indian Women cricket team, who have not lost a single match at Asia Cup since its inception, continued their winning streak in this edition of Asia Cup with a win over Malaysia on Sunday and then followed it up with a thumping win against Thailand on Monday. With their second consecutive win, they are seated at the top of the table with 4 points and an impressive net run rate of over 5. 

Winning the toss, Thailand opted to bowl first at Royal Selangor Club, Kuala Lumpur. The decision didn’t prove to be quite fruitful as Smriti Mandhana, who scored 29 off 22 balls, and Mona Meshram, who scored 32 off 45 balls, got India to a decent start at the top. Later, it was the captain who came to the team's rescue and got some quick runs in the death overs. Harmanpreet Kaur scored unbeaten 27 off 17 balls and helped India reach a total of 132/4.

Chasing a target of 132, Thailand never looked in control of the proceedings and could only manage 66 runs for 8 wickets in their quota of 20 overs. Nattaya Boochatham, who scored 21 off 40 deliveries, was the top scorer for Thailand. Harmanpreet was the pick of the bowlers and picked up 3 wickets for just 11 runs. Deepti Sharma picked up 2 wickets for 16 runs and Pooja Vastrakar grabbed one wicket for 5 runs. The Indian skipper received the player of the match award for brilliance with the bat and the bowl.

Team India would be looking to continue their dominating run in the tournament and now face Bangladesh Women team on Wednesday at Kinrara Academy Oval, Kuala Lumpur.
