India made it two wins from two matches in Group B at the Women's World Twenty20 with a comprehensive seven-wicket win against Pakistan in Guyana.

India began their chase on the unusual scoreline of 10/0 after Pakistan were twice docked five penalty runs for their batters running on the pitch in their ICC Women's World T20 clash.

India had little difficulty in gunning down the modest target of 134 with six balls to spare, reaching 137 for 3 in 19 overs.

Earlier, Indian bowlers pinned Pakistan down for most part of their innings before allowing them to wriggle out for 133 for 7. Thanks to the sparkling 103-run knock by skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, India marked a comfortable win against the Kiwi's and they are expected to pile on the misery on fragile Pakistan, who lost to Australia by 52 runs.

After a quick single on the second ball of the 16th over in the first innings, on-field umpire Gregory Brathwaite handed an official warning to the Pakistan team as the officials found the duo of Nida Dar and Bismah Maroof was running in the danger area. India also holds the upper hand in World T20 events, winning three of the five encounters so far. First an outstanding direct throw from 18-year old Jemimah Rodrigues sent Umaima Sohail back to the pavilion in the fourth over while captain Javeria witnessed the same fate in the seventh over after a mixed-up. All the three were regulation catches.

She took full advantage, soon reaching her seventh T20 global fifty.

Poonam Yadav and Dayalan Hemalatha scalped two wickets each to put Pakistan on the backfoot. "We were told before getting into bat that the 10 runs [would be added]", said Raj.
