Women’s Asia Cup 2022: India Women Defeat Bangladesh Women by 59 Runs

Women’s Asia Cup Highlights: There is a lot of thrill in the ongoing Women’s Asia Cup 2022. After losing their first match in 6 years against Pakistan, the Indian Women made a comeback to have a convincing win over Bangladesh. The Women in Blue the tournament hosts by a massive margin of 59 runs.

India’s Score Building

India won the toss and elected to bat first. At one point, India was cruising at 91/0, but once the opening partnership was broken, they lost some of their momenta. Bangladesh recovered in the second half of the innings. Jemimah made sure the total crossed the 160-runs threshold and kept the scoreboard going.

Smriti and Shafali started out with a lot of intent, playing a lot of aerial shots in the powerplay while using their feet. Not her partner, but the stand-in skipper missed her fifty. Shafali scored 55 while Smriti and Jemimah scored 47 and 35 respectively.

Rumana was the most effective of Bangladesh’s leg-spinners at lowering the scoring rate. She took 3 wickets. Apart from her, Khatun took 1 wicket. Rest, all bowlers went wicketless.

Bangladesh’s Failed Chase

Although the Bangladesh openers enjoyed a solid partnership, their strike rates fell short of expectations. The batters who came up next could feel the pressure of such a high necessary run rate after that partnership was broken. The Bangladeshi captain played a good knock, it was never going to be enough.

In addition to her fifty, Shafali Verma bowled a very good spell in which she was very frugal and picked up a few wickets. She was backed by Deepti who took 2 wickets as well. Sneh Rana and Renuka Singh took 1 wicket each.

Women’s Asia Cup Highlights: What Captains said?

Smriti Mandhana the winning captain says. “It was disappointing in the last match. It’s good to comeback after that loss, really proud of the girls. Today it was a total team performance. Shafali batted well, and also Jemimah played well. We could have scored 10 runs runs more while batting. We had to keep bowling dot balls, and we had to wait for their batters to make mistakes, which they did. Our bowlers bowled really well.”

The losing captain, Nigar Sulatan says. “We didn’t bowl well in the powerplay, we bowled too many loose balls. We couldn’t get many runs in our powerplay either. Our main bowlers couldn’t execute their plans. We couldn’t capitalize the loose deliveries when we were batting though. Rumana came in later, in order to compromise for the runs leaked by the bowlers in the powerplay.”
