After a harrowing defeat to Australia in the first match, India bounced back in style with a thumping win over Pakistan eight-wicket win over Pakistan.

Harmanpreet Kaur’s side has battled COVID-related selection issues during its first couple of games in T20 cricket’s first appearance in the Commonwealth Games.
