It was a bowlers’ day out at the Barabati Stadium as 20 wickets fell and only 259 runs were scored during the ICC Women’s World Cup group B match between Pakistan and Australia in Cuttack on Friday.

Sadia Yousuf (3/30), Asmavia Iqbal (2/36) and Sumaiya Siddiqi (1/27) shared six wickets among them as Pakistan dismissed title contenders Australia for 175 in 46.1 overs after they decided to bat first.
