In their second game of the ongoing 13th South Asian Games (SA Games) on Wednesday at Pokhara in Nepal, Bangladesh Women's cricket team thrashed Nepal Women's team with 10 wickets.
Bangladesh defeated their counterpart in Sri Lanka by seven wickets in the first match. These two consecutive wins help Bangladesh to make the final of the event a big step forward.
Bangladesh won the toss in the game on Wednesday and sent Nepal to bat first. The hosts did not come with the bat with a dismal display as they fell all-out in 19.2 overs only for 50.
Only three of their batters reached two-digit scores, with captain Rubina Chhetry's best score of 13, while four of the 11 batters from Nepal failed to score anything.
Rabey Khan was imperious with the ball, bowling four overs, conceding only eight runs, and bagging four wickets for the national team in her debut. Two wickets were also scalped by Pace-bowler Jahanara Alam.
In response, Bangladesh Women pursued the goal of 51 runs in 7.4 overs without losing a wicket. For 23 and 26 respectively, the Openers-Murshidha Khatun and Ayesha Rahman-were unbeaten.
On Thursday at the same venue, Bangladesh Women will face the Maldives. While Bangladesh won its first two games, Maldives played one game and lost 10 wickets to the hosts in Nepal.
