Bangladesh secures Women’s World Cup T20
Sports Live: Opener Sanjida Islam struck a 60 ball-71 not out as Bangladesh Women’s team crushed Thailand by 70 runs to clinch the Women’s World Cup T20 Qualifier title at the Dundee on Saturday.
According to BCB sources said, both team earlier qualified for the Women’s World Cup T20, slated to be held in Australia, 2020 after moving to the final. But it was bit a matter of pride for the Bangladeshi Women’s as they didn’t want to lose the final anyway.
The Bangladesh Women’s however put up a performance and in doing so, they
sealed the title for the consecutive second time. Sanjida and her fellow opener Murshida Khatun combined for a 68-run partnership to lay the solid platform, standing on which Bangladesh put on 130-5 in 20-over allocation.
Sanjida smashed six fours and three sixes in her unbeaten 60 ball-71 runs
knock while Murshida made 33 off 34, sending the ball across the boundary for
four times. No.9 batter Ratanaporn Padunglerd was the highest scorer for Thai Women
with 15 not out while Wongpaka Liengprasert made 11.
