India captain Harmanpreet Kaur admitted that her side were made to work really hard by Thailand to emerge victorious by 74 runs in the first semi-final of Women’s Asia Cup at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium on Thursday. India play Sri Lanka in the final on Saturday.

“We batted really well, Thailand bowled quite well, not giving us easy runs or loose balls. We really had to work hard. That partnership [between her and Jemimah] helped us to get a score on the board,” said Harmanpreet.

With the ball, India thoroughly dominated with Deepti Sharma’s economical spell of 3-7, including 21 dot balls and breaking the back of the chase to set the base for a huge 74-run win to reach the final of the Women’s Asia Cup for eighth straight time.
