Colombo: The Indian women's team continued its unbeaten run at the ICC World Cup qualifiers by advancing to the final with a seven-wicket win over arch-rivals Pakistan here yesterday.

India bundled out Pakistan for 67 in 43.4 overs. The team then achieved the target in just 22.3 overs, scoring 70 for three for the win which helped them top the Super Six table.

Ekta Bisht shone for India with an impressive five-wicket haul, finishing with figures of 5-8. The Indian bowlers ran through the Pakistani batting line-up. Only two Pakistani batters could reach the double-digit mark.

Chasing a modest target, India rode on responsible knocks from Deepti Sharma (29*) and Harmanpreet Kaur (24) to reach the target with 165 balls to spare. Deepti and Harmanpreet put on a solid 42-run partnership for the third wicket in India's win.
