Kuala Lumpur, June 4 (CRICKETNMORE) - Skipper Harmanpreet Kaur's all-round show helped India notch up their second successive win in the women's Asia Cup as the women-in-blue defeated Thailand by 66 runs at the Royal Selangor Club here on Monday.

Put in to bat, India posted 132/4 as the entire top order contributed well with the bat.
