India vs Thailand: Superb performance by a world-class Indian bowling line-up and Sneh Ranas three-wicket haul helped Women in Blue to score an easy 9-wicket win in the Womens Asia Cup.

India bundled out Thailand for 37 in 15.1 over at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium and then chased the target without batting an eyelid.
