For an ordinary cricketer, battling unbearable stomach cramp could well mean retiring to the cooler confines of the dressing room but if it is Harmanpreet Kaur, she would just hit eight sixes in order to avoid running.

The 29-year Harmanpreet reached the three-figure mark in 49 balls, punishing the Nerw Zealand bowlers with eight sixes and seven fours. The severe cramps hampered her running between the wickets as she came up with a different plan.

India start as the overwhelming favourites to beat Pakistan in Sunday's clash, considering their all-round effort against New Zealand.

Nida was the beneficiary of a piece of good luck when Veda dropped an easy catch at long-off off Radha Yadav's bowling even as the ball slipped through for a boundary. "I was not looking at how many runs I was getting, I was looking at how many we needed to win the game", Kaur said.

Harmanpreet was required to walk into the middle early, at the fall of debutant Dayalan Hemalatha's wicket in only the sixth over.

Jemimah Rodrigues too struck a brisk 59 off 45 balls with the help of seven boundaries.

India were in a spot of bother when Hemalatha was dismissed, and another wicket would have only added to their worry.

However, he missed his half century by only 9 runs as Dwaine Pretorius bowled a superb delivery to knock down his stumps. However, Adam Zampa and Josh Hazlewood added crucial 27 runs for the 11th wicket, taking score to 231 runs.

Kaur, whose 171 against Australia in the ODI World Cup past year has become a stuff of legends, didn't know while batting that she had gone on to become first T20 centurion from the country.

Pakistan would be hoping for a better batting show against the Indian team, which should be high on confidence after the opening-day win.

The 100-run partnership was up in quick time, after the duo scored 16 runs in one of the overs in the back 10.

Sana's off-day (0/32 in 4 overs) was one of the factors for Pakistan not being able to contain Australia during the initial overs.

India head into the much-anticipated clash against arch-rivals Pakistan on the back of a thumping win over New Zealand in their Group B opener of the Twenty20 tournament in the Carribean.

India got the big wicket of Bates when she played Arundhati Reddy's low full-toss to the backward point fielder.

The contest was as good as over for New Zealand after Bates' dismissal and India kept up the pressure on their opponents. The skipper led by example after India were struggling at 40 for three.
