Indw vs Banw: Despite making a splash in the T20 series, the Indian women’s team lost the ODI series. As part of a three-match ODI series against Bangladesh, they were defeated by 40 runs (using the Duckworth-Lewis method). It is noteworthy that this is the Bangladesh women’s team’s first ODI victory over the Indian team.
After winning the toss, Team India decided to bowl. The game was abruptly stopped by the rain shortly after it began. When play eventually resumed, the umpires cut the game’s duration to 44 overs. Bangladesh scored 152 runs in 43 overs while batting first, suffering a 10 wicket loss. A modest aim! The Indian batsmen were expected to play well, sing, and hit the target, according to everyone. However, the outcome was different.
In 35.5 overs, the Indian team scored 113 runs after being reduced to 153 runs. The Indian girls demonstrated their bowling and batting prowess. As if the Dhaka stadium would soon be covered in water, people lined up one by one to enter the pavilion.
It was unavoidable to lose. Marufa Akhtar (4/29) and Rebaya Khan (3/30), two Bengal bowlers, were crucial to India’s defeat. Bangladesh now leads the three-match ODI series 1-0.
On July 19 at the Dhaka location, the second ODI game between these two teams will take place.
