Pakistan Women lost their second warm-up match against Odisha XI by four wickets in Cuttack.
Pakistan were bowled out for a low total of 154 after they chose to bat. The start was not ideal as they lost both their openers with only two runs on the board, both dismissed by Sujata Mallik (2 for 13). But Sana Mir (25) and Nain Abidi (29) stabilised the innings with a 50-run stand. This was followed by Bismah Maroof's knock of 44 who held one end together but saw regular wickets fall at the other end. When she fell in the 42nd over, Pakistan were 143 for 7 and Odisha XI wrapped up their innings on 154. Sushree Pradhan took 3 for 41 runs in her nine overs.
Odisha's chase was not smooth as they scored at a slow pace and were 50 for 3 in the 20th over. But a 61-ball 50 from Swagatika Rath and an unbeaten knock from Pragyan Mohanty (28 off 82) helped them reach the target with four wickets in hand.
