Mirpur, July 11: India won a close match against Bangladesh in the women’s T20I series. Bangladesh bowled out India for a low score of 95 runs, but then struggled in their own batting and were all out for 87 runs. Indian spinners Deepti Sharma and Shafali Verma played a key role in the victory by taking wickets in the last overs. Bangladesh’s captain Nigar Sultana tried her best to lead her team but got out in the penultimate over. The bowlers from both teams performed well in the match. I should have stopped playing the game. I don’t think we started off the way we wanted to. The leader of the home team is excited for the last game. The leader is also praising the skipper, Harmanpreet, for having confidence in giving a fair amount of overs to both Minnu and Anusha, who performed well. The leader mentioned that there are some young bowlers in the series who will take on the responsibility of bowling for the team. It’s necessary for us to have faith in them. “We won’t hide them in the field,” Harmanpreet said after the match. Minnu, the first senior woman cricketer from Kerala, caught Shamima Sultana (5) who swept the ball but ended up hitting it to Shafali, who caught it. Both spinners, Deepti and Harmanpreet, took wickets. Shathi Rani (5) was caught by Harmanpreet with a spectacular one-handed catch at slip, while Shorna Akter (7 off 17 balls) supported the Bangladesh captain. They added 34 runs together, causing some worry for the Indian team. However, Deepti turned it around by getting Shorna out, breaking the partnership and ensuring India’s victory. India decided to bat first and had a strong start with Smriti Mandhana (13) and Shafali (19) adding 33 runs quickly. But then Bangladesh fought back and took key wickets, including Shafali and Harmanpreet. Nahida Akter got Mandhana out, and Sultana dismissed Shafali. Harmanpreet was bowled by a delivery with extra bounce and turn, while Jemimah was dismissed for eight runs. Fahima Khatun took two wickets for Bangladesh, preventing India from gaining momentum.
