ICC shared the video with the caption, “A winning performance on and off the field.” The video instantly got hit on Twitter and was shared widely with many users who applauded Pakistan Women for their impressive performance. Earlier, Pakistan lost all their games in the tournament despite performing well with bat and bowl. Due to this, Pakistan is at the bottom of the points table in World Cup.

Meanwhile, West Indies started well. They defeated teams like New Zealand and England but lost the momentum halfway and were handed over defeat by Australian Women, Indian Women and now Pakistan Women.

However, West Indies Women are placed at third position in the points table. Pakistan Women will now face defending champions England Women on 24th March, while West Indies Women will lock horns with South Africa Women on the same day.
