The Bangladesh women’s cricket team won their first match in five years against India three days ago. Today, they beat their neighbors for the first time in a one-day international match, beating them by 40 runs using the DLS method.
In the first one-day international (ODI) at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Bangladesh had to protect a low score of 152 runs. Young pacer Marufa Akter led the way with the ball, getting four wickets for 29 runs.
This is Bangladesh’s first win in an ODI against their more famous neighbors, who have won all five of their other ODIs.
Bangladesh batted first in this 44-over game. In 43 overs, they got to 152 for nine, but Shorna Akter couldn’t bat because he was hurt. Captain Nigar Sultana had the highest score of the game with 39.
In their reply, India only scored 113 runs in 33.5 overs. Marufa took four wickets and Rabeya Khatun took three.
