In the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2022, history was scripted as Women's Cricket was included in the CWG for the first time. All the cricket-playing Commonwealth Nations engaged in a competition with each other to bag a medal for their country at Birmingham. Amidst this, team India's Renuka Thakur has been a headache for opposition batters in the early overs and bowled a fiery spell to help team India thrash Barbados and enter the semi-finals.
Prior to this match, India had lost against Australia in the first match and then registered a win against Pakistan. Barbados also were defeated by Australia and then defeated Pakistan. This meant that this was a virtual knockout match for both India and Barbados women.
