Pakistan docked 10 runs for running on the pitch

But Pakistan were twice penalised for batters running down the centre of the pitch and India were gifted 10 runs.

Opting to bat after the coin landed in her favour at the Providence Stadium, Harmanpreet and Jemimah Rodrigues (59 off 45 balls) added 134 runs for the fourth wicket to guide India to an imposing 194 for five in the stipulated 20 overs.

While openers Ayesha Zafar and Nahida Khan fell for single-digit scores, Omaima Sohail and Bismah Maroof failed to convert starts into big knocks. With the win, India are now a step closer to making it to the semifinals of the World T20 from the five-team Group B.

The 18-year-old Jemimah Rodrigues (16), who scored a half century in the previous game against New Zealand, seemed to continue from where she left but she played a shot too many and perished in the process, caught and bowled by Nida Dar in the 15th over.

The first five-run punishment was enforced in the 18th over and, after Dar reached her maiden global T20 half century with a six when the fielder stepped on the rope at deep mid-wicket boundary, she was caught at extra cover next ball.

Pakistan were on the ropes but India allowed them to gain grounds by having three dropped catches. The next over, Poonam made a mess of a Bismah Maroof skier as she completely misjudged the trajectory of the ball.

It meant India effectively began their innings on 10-0 and Raj calmly recorded their fifty with successive boundaries in the eighth over. "It was unprofessional on our part, after being warned, we still trodded (sic) on the danger area, it's something we need to work on, it hasn't happened for the first time, it happened previously during the Sri Lanka series as well", said Pakistan captain Javeria Khan.
