India have lifted the title on all six occasions since the inception of the tournament in 2004.

The runners-up of 2017 Women's World Cup are heading into the final on the back of a comfortable seven-wicket win over Pakistan. And now, India will face arch-rivals Pakistan in the crucial tie.

Left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht was the most successful India bowler, returning three for 14 in her four-over spell.

In reply, India got off to a poor start, with veteran Mithali Raj succumbing to a six-ball duck, and Deepti Sharma following her soon to leave the side tottering at 5-2. Riding on Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur's knocks, the side chased down Pakistan's paltry score of 72, with nearly four overs to spare.

Can India avenge their group-stage defeat to Bangladesh?

Against the Pakistanis, the Harmanpreet Kaur-led side had a rather easy outing barring the tricky chase that saw them lose two wickets with just five runs on the board. The First scoring 34 from 49 balls and the other 38 from 40 balls, both together guided India to a victory with seven wickets.

Consequently, the Queens of the Asia Cup will meet either Pakistan or Bangladesh in the final of the tournament.

Shikha Pandey, Jhulan Goswami, Poonam Yadav and Deepti Sharma bagged a wicket each.
