BD-W vs MAL-W: After Losing to Pakistan, Bangladesh has returned to winning ways with an 88-run win over Malaysia on Thursday at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. The hosts were brilliant with the ball and the win helped the team move to number three on the points table.
Batting first, Bangladesh women managed to score 129 runs in the first innings. Opener Shamima Sultana (wk) got out on the very first ball but Murshida Khatun looked outstanding in the middle. She played an outstanding knock of 56 runs and ensured the runs keep coming despite the fall of wickets.
While Fargana Hoque got out early, skipper Sultana provided great support at the other end. She played another valuable knock of 53 runs in 34 balls, including 6 fours and 1 six.
Bangladesh couldn’t finish as they would have liked, though. Both the batters departed on the final two balls of the 19th over. In the last over, Bangladesh could only score 6 runs and, as a result, the team were restricted to 129.
For Malaysia, Sasha Azmi was nothing more than outstanding in her four-over spell. She returned with figures of 1 for 15 in 4 overs. Aisya Eleesa conceded only 20 runs in 4 overs but didn’t pick a wicket either.
Malaysia looked completely out of sorts with the bat in the second innings. Wickets fell in quick succession as no batter managed to cross the double-figure mark. All the batters were bowled out for a paltry 41 runs, thereby losing the game by 88 runs.
Fariha Trisna was the pick of the bowlers for Bangladesh as she claimed 3 wickets for 12 runs in 4 overs. Besides, the likes of Akter and Rumana Ahmed claimed 2 wickets each.
