An exciting cricket clash is on the horizon as Bangladesh Women (BANW) lock horns with Pakistan Women (PAKW) in the 1st T20I of the Pakistan Women’s tour of Bangladesh 2023 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. While Pakistan Women currently hold a commanding 15-2 lead over Bangladesh Women in head-to-head encounters, it’s worth noting that in their most recent T20I meeting during the Asian Games, Bangladesh Women emerged victorious with a thrilling five-wicket win.
During that memorable encounter, Pakistan Women experienced early setbacks with the swift dismissals of Shawaal Zulfiqar and Sidra Ameen. Although Sadaf Shamas, Nidar Dar, and Aliya Riaz contributed significantly, Pakistan Women struggled to post a substantial total, ultimately reaching 64 for nine in their allotted 20 overs. Shorna Akter and Sanjida Akter stood out with their bowling performances for Bangladesh Women.
In response, Bangladesh Women’s openers Shamima Sultana and Shathi Rani provided a strong start to the innings. Despite facing periodic setbacks, it was Shorna Akter who guided the team to a hard-fought five-wicket victory. Notable performances from Nashra Sandhu and Sadia Iqbal couldn’t prevent the triumph for Bangladesh Women.
