Pakistan defeated arch rival Bangladesh to win its first gold medal at the Guangzhou Asian Games in women's cricket on Friday. Nida Rashids brilliant all-round performance guided Pakistan to a 10-wicket win in Guangzhou, China. After being sent into bat, Bangladesh were bowled out for 92 in 20 overs, with off-spinner Nida taking four wickets for 16 runs. Nida then scored a superb unbeaten 51 to guide her team to 93-0 in 15.4 overs. Javeria Wadood hit the winning boundary and was not out 39. It was Pakistans first gold at Guangzhou, after collecting silver in wushu and a bronze in snooker. They are also the first cricket champion in the Games' history, as the sport debuts in Guangzhou. Earlier, Japan scored a narrow seven-wicket victory over the host China to win the bronze. Eight teams, including other four teams from Nepal, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Thailand, compete for the title.
