Women’s Asia Cup: Bangladesh’s batting collapse, set small target for Pakistan
BI Report || BusinessInsider
It was a brilliant bowling display from Pakitan against Bangladesh in the Women’s Asia Cup at the Sylhet Outer Cricket Stadium on Monday.
After winning the toss, the visitors invited the Tigresses to bat first and restricted them to only 70 runs. The defending champion lost eight batters to post that small total on the board.
It was really a poor start from the hosts as they lost their first three batters inside five overs and managed to collect only three runs. They continuously lost wickets in the middle and the biggest compliment someone can give Bangladesh is that they batted out their 20 overs.
Only six boundaries were hit throughout the innings and three batters - Salma Khatun, Nigar Sultana and Lata Mondal managed to touch the double-figure runs and helped their side to cross the 50-run mark.
Diana Baig and Nida Dar picked up two wickets each while Sadia Iqbal and Omaima Sohail bagged one each for Pakistan.
