At 2.2 overs, Smrithi Mandhana was bowled by De Silva. Her opening partner soon followed suit thanks to a sensational catch on the ropes by Malsha Shehani. However, Jemimah Rodrigues has since put India on top with a masterful half-century. Her captain Harmanpreet Kaur has played second fiddle perfectly well and the pair have put India firmly in the driver’s seat going into the last four overs Jemimah took the stroke, adding fours and six’s to the score. The first six of the tournament was hit by Jemimah. The partnership broke at 115/3 in 15.5 overs.
