Once again the Bangladesh Women's A team were let down by their batting department, succumbing to a five-wicket defeat against the India A team in the second fixture of their three-match one-day series, which India have now won 2-0 with a game remaining, at the KSCA stadium in Hubli yesterday.
After electing to bat Bangladesh posted 195 for 7, India then made quick work of the chase as they reached 196 in 48.1 overs.
The visitors kept losing wickets at regular intervals and struggled on 59 for 3 inside the first 20 overs before Lata Mondol and skipper Rumana Ahmed tried to steady the ship by adding 107 runs for the fourth wicket. Other than Lata's team high 71 and Rumana's 63, none of the other batters made significant contributions.
The slow approach from Bangladesh's batting side proved costly as they were unable to cash in on the latter stages of the innings, adding just 29 runs in the last five overs.
India's opener Vanitha VR handed the hosts a solid start to the chase with a run-a-ball 42 featuring two sixes and four boundaries. NM Chaudhary top scored for the side with 56 runs off 80 balls.
The third and final match will take place on December 8 at the same venue.
