Bangladesh's women's team

Playing in their first World Cup, Bangladesh’s women’s team lost the first two matches. However, on Monday (March 14), Nigar-Rumana picked up their first victory in the World Cup by making history against Pakistan. They won by 9 runs against Pakistan in Hamilton.

At one time, it seemed that Bangladesh would have to leave the field with such a huge target. At one time, Pakistan had only 2 wickets for 183 runs. But suddenly, Pakistan was blown away by the Fahima Khatun storm. His 2 wickets in an over turned the tide of the match. Between 183 and 188 runs, Pakistan lost 4 wickets. Sidra Amin was fighting alone for Pakistan. He scored 104 runs. However, Pakistan did not win. As a result, Bangladesh’s girls picked up their first win in the Women’s World Cup.

Earlier, Bangladesh’s women’s team got a big collection of 234 runs in the stipulated 50 overs. Farzana Haque Pinki scored 71 runs. Apart from this, captain Nigar Sultana and Sharmin Akhter scored 46 and 44 runs respectively.

Chasing a target of 235, Pakistan women started off slowly. The first pair scored 91 runs. Then Sidra Amin and captain Bismah Maroof led the team to victory. However, Bangladesh spinner Fahima picked up two wickets in two consecutive balls in her seventh over to bring pakistan’s two set batters back to the pavilion. After that, if the wickets are worn one by one, the victory remains elusive for the Pakistani women. In the end, Pakistan’s innings stopped at 225 for the loss of 9 wickets.

Fahima Khatun took 3 wickets for Bangladesh. Rumana Ahmed also took two wickets. As a result of this loss, Pakistan women lost four of the four matches in the World Cup.

In their third match of the Women’s ODI World Cup, Bangladesh lost the toss against Pakistan and elected to bat. Jyoti-Rumana has already played two matches in the tournament. The Tigress team is still winless with two losses in two matches. However, in the third match, they turned around and left the field with a win.
