Thailand Women's Cricket team creates history in Women's Asia Cup 2022

Pakistan women’s cricket team were handed a stunning four-wicket loss by Thailand women’s cricket in the ongoing Women’s Asia Cup 2022 in Sylhet, Bangladesh, on Thursday (October 6). Chasing a modest 117 to win, the Thai women completed a tense win with one ball remaining led by opener Natthakan Chantham’s brilliant half-century.

Chantham smashed 61 off just 51 balls to lay the foundation for Thailand’s most famous cricket win. Her knock was studded with two sixes and five fours. The next highest scorer was Thailand captain Naruemoi Chaiwai, who scored 17.

Thailand needed 10 runs to win in the final with four wickets in hand but Rosenan Kanoh came up with the crucial boundary off Pakistan’s Diana Baig to ease the pressure and guide the team home with one ball remaining.
