Pakistan wins first cricket gold at Asian Games    Guangzhou,(AP) Nida Rashid's brilliant all-round performance helped Pakistan win the first cricket gold medal ever awarded at the Asian Games with a 10-wicket victory over Bangladesh in today's women's Twenty20 final. After being sent into bat, Bangladesh was bowled out for 92 in 20 overs, with off-spinner Rashid taking four wickets for 16 runs. Rashid then scored a superb unbeaten 51 off 43 balls to guide her team to 93-0 in 15.4 overs. Javeria Wadood hit the winning boundary and was not out 39. "Today I feel women's cricket has got an ideal platform to progress back home," Rashid told The Associated Press. "Now more girls will take up this sport as they will definitely get inspiration from our gold winning performance." It was Pakistan's first gold at Guangzhou, after collecting silver in wushu and a bronze in snooker.
