After back-to-back failures, finally, Pakistan women’s cricket team managed to celebrate its first-ever victory in the world cup.
“This was desperately needed, we all wanted that win,” said Nida.
“This one goes to all the Pakistani fans who are watching and supporting us.”
“It’s a do-or-die situation now and we have to come out banging,” West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor said of her team’s match against South Africa on Thursday.

“Now we want to think ahead and move forward in our efforts.”
