Kiwis trounce Pak

A maiden five-wicket haul by Rachel Candy helped New Zealand thrash Pakistan by seven wickets in a league match and ensure a place in the Super Six of the ICC Women’s World Cup at the Barabati Stadium here on Sunday.

The 26-year-old Candy (5-19) was the star for the White Ferns as they shot out Pakistan for just 104 runs in little over 41 overs. The Kiwis achieved overhauled the target, reaching 108 for 3 in 29.4 overs with skipper Suzie Bates hitting an unbeaten half-century. Bates scored 65 runs off 84 balls including 10 fours and stitched an unbeaten 69-run partnership with Katie Perkins (25 not out) for the fourth wicket to guide her side home.

This was Pakistan’s second loss in the tournament, following their 91-run thrashing at the hands of Australia. Pakistan were bundled out for just 84 chasing Australia’s 176 in that match.
