  • The tall medium pacer conceded just 16 runs in her four overs while Nahida Akter and Rumana Ahmed took two wickets each for Bangladesh.
  • Having already secured a spot in the upcoming ICC Women’s World T20 in West Indies, Bangladesh proved their worth as the best team of the qualifiers defending such a modest total.
  • Bangladesh had posted 122 for 9 in 20 overs after being sent in to bat, with opener Ayasha Rahman top-scoring with 46 off 42 balls, her innings featuring five fours and two sixes.
