Women’s T20: Indian batters flop again as Bangladesh pull off consolation win

In the women’s T20 International, Bangladesh won against India by four wickets. India did not play well and only scored 102 runs. Bangladesh struggled but managed to win in the end. Shamima Sultana was the top scorer for Bangladesh. India still won the series 2-1, but they could have played better. The three-match ODI series between the two teams will start on July 16. The biggest disappointment was the batting performance on wickets that favored spin, as the batters were not able to challenge the slow bowlers effectively. Except for Harmanpreet Kaur, none of the batters were able to hit the ball over the fence in the three games. However, rookie off-spinner Minnu Mani performed well for India. The new head coach will have a lot of work to do before the team plays in the T20 World Cup next year. Harmanpreet mentioned that there is room for improvement in the following ODI series and predicted that it will be a tournament with low scores. We won’t see 300 points scored in one inning. We should take turns batting and scoring runs, while playing one over at a time. “We have many areas in which we can improve as a team. We’ll have to wait and see how it goes,” she said after the game. Regarding the defeat to Bangladesh, Harmanpreet commented, “Bangladesh played very well today, they were very alert in their batting. ” We learned a lot from the way they performed in the singles matches. They did not allow us to have an opportunity. “This pitch requires you to rely on scoring one or two runs at a time. Because our batting was not successful, we were not able to score at least 6 runs for each over. The thing that made a big difference for us was the last five overs of the game. We didn’t get the results we wanted because we felt a lot of pressure. The captain of the Indian team scored 40 runs off 41 balls, but then there was a sudden collapse in our batting performance during the final overs, and we lost our last six wickets for only 11 runs. A leg spinner named Rabeya Khan was the best bowler for the Bangladesh team, taking three wickets for 16 runs in four overs. Off-spinner Sultana Khatun did well in the beginning of the game by getting rid of the star opening players, Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana. The pitch has been difficult to play on throughout the series, so the team captain, Harmanpreet, chose to bat first. Unfortunately, Shafali and Mandhana didn’t have a good start and India was at 27 runs for the loss of two wickets in six overs. Mandhana made a mistake while trying to hit the ball towards the leg side and ended up getting caught by the Bangladesh captain and keeper Nigar Sultana. Shafali was caught at long on. Jemimah Rodrigues and Harmanpreet then had a partnership of 45 runs to continue the innings, but Rodrigues got out when she was stumped by leg-spinner Shorna Akter. Jemimah played well in her innings and was confident against the spinners. However, only Harmanpreet was able to hit a six. Harmanpreet got out in the 17th over and after that, many Indian batters got out quickly because they couldn’t score enough runs. Please rewrite the text so that it is easier to understand.
