Eves World 20-20 Cup: White Ferns go through to semifinals

The New Zealand woman’s cricket team – the White Ferns — outclassed Pakistan to enter the semi-finals in the Women’s ICC World T20 at Warner Park, St Kitts.

They now face the West Indies in the semifinals on Saturday.

An economical opening spell by spinner Erin Bermingham and seamer Sian Ruck ensured the White Ferns held a firm grip on the game from the start after Pakistan won the toss and chose to bat.

Strike bowler Nicola Browne then ripped out both openers to initiate a collapse that saw Pakistan reduced to 30 for seven.

Browne snared two more wickets to finish with excellent figures of four for 15 while Kate

Broadmore, Lucy Doolan and Sophie Devine chimed in with one apiece.

The White Ferns needed only 8.2 overs to complete the rout but did lose the wickets of Suzie Bates (4), captain Aimee Watkins (15), Sophie Devine (23) and Rachel Priest (2) along the way. (ANI)
