Pakistan clinch thriller to win gold

Pakistan Women 97 for 6 (Maroof 24, Rumana 2-13) beat Bangladesh Women 38 for 9 (Dar 2-2, Sadia 2-2) by four runs (D/L method)
Scorecard

The spinners Sana Mir, Sadia Yousuf and Nida Dar claimed two wickets apiece, as Pakistan Women retained the gold medal in the Asian Games after beating Bangladesh Women by four runs according the D/L method in the final in Incheon.

Set a revised target of 43 from seven overs, Bangladesh were on course at 30 for 2 after 4.2 overs, but they completely collapsed from there and lost their next seven wickets for just eight runs. Rumana Ahmed and Fargana Ahmed were the team's top scorers with 10 each, but none of the other batsmen could muster more than seven, as Bangladesh could manage only two fours in the entire innings. Four of Pakistan's bowlers went at under six an over, as the team kept Bangladesh to 38 for 9 to successfully defend the gold medal they won during the 2010 Asian Games.

Pakistan, opting to bat, had made 97 for 6 from their 20 overs. Bismah Maroof, Pakistan's leading run-scorer in the tournament, hit 24 off 27 balls, while Nain Abidi chipped in with 18. Legspinner Rumana Ahmed was the pick of Bangladesh's bowlers and collected 2 for 13.
