It was a nerve-wracking game indeed, and both the teams Bangladesh and Sri Lanka gave in their best.
But at the end, it was the Sri Lankan Bowlers that stood out from everyone. Khadija Tul Kubra took 3 wickets of the Sri Lanka players, but that didn’t stop the team from winning the match. Read more for more insight into the match.
Sri Lankan Bowlers made the Win Possible
Disciplined bowling tactics are what led Sri Lanka to win against the strong team like Bangladesh.
The Women’s T20 Asia Cup started off with Sri Lanka facing Bangladesh that was held at Royal Selangor Club in Kuala Lumper on 3rd June, Sunday.
Sri Lankan bowlers smashed Bangladesh team, and it was an all-out condition at just 63 runs made by the latter team. As the Bangladesh team entered the field to bat, their first wicket fell in the 2nd ball itself. Prabodhani from the Sri Lanka pacer took the wicket of Shamima Sultana and just made them lose hope on winning the match.
Then, Fargana Hoque came to the crease before Rumana Ahmed and Ayasha Rahman made the entry to the field. After 2 wickets of Sri Lanka were down, there was no looking back for Sri Lankan bowlers. They got into an energy, and the wickets started falling at a faster rate.
The previous Bangladesh score of 35/2 was changed to 37/5 in just a few minutes.
Sri Lankan Bowlers who outshone the match were:
- Sugandika Kumari (3/17)
- Udeshika Prabodhani (2/6)
- Oshadi Ranasinghe (2/10), and
- Inoka Ranaweera (2/15)
These were the players that stood out in the match, and the people who deserved all the credits.
While the Sri Lankan openers Nipuni Hansika and Yasoda Mendis gave a good performance. All was going well until Khadija Tul Kubra from Bangladesh bowled out Mendis at 20!
