Bangladesh registered a six-run win over Papua New Guinea in an ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifier encounter in Dundee, Scotland yesterday. The match was held on the allocated reserve day after rain prevented play on August 31.
Rain also interrupted the proceedings yesterday but fortunately could not halt it altogether this time around. Sent in to bat, Bangladesh managed to score 103 for eight in 16.3 overs before rain intervened with Fahima Khatun remaining unbeaten on an 18-ball 32.
After resumption, Papua New Guinea were given a revised target of 59 runs from eight overs. However, they could only manage to score 52 for five, courtesy of Nahida Khatun’s heroics with the ball. Nahida took three wickets for just three runs in the final over when the opposition needed 11 to secure a win.
