Women's World T20: Windies outgun Bangladesh in low scoring affair

IANS  |  Georgetown 

West rode a five-wicket haul by to recover from a poor batting effort and beat by 60 runs at the ICC Women's World T20 2018.

Asked to bat first by Bangladesh, the West batters never really got going. They lost wickets at regular intervals right from the start and eventually posted 106/8 in their 20 overs.

Jahanara Alam struck the first blows by removing both openers Dottin and in the third over.

The Bangladeshis thereafter continued to put pressure on the hosts with some excellent performances and only a quick 32 off 24 balls by Kycia Knight pushed the local team past the 100-run mark.

Defending a small target, the West bowlers put on the back foot early on with Shakera Selman dismissing Shamima Sultana in the opening over.

Dottin then ran through the middle order with incredible figures of 5/5 in 3.4 overs as crumpled for just 46 runs in 14.4 overs.

None of the Bangladesh batters managed to post double figures. Fargana Hoque was their top scorer with eight runs.

Brief scores:

West Indies: 106/8 in 20 overs (Kycia Knight 32, Stafanie Taylor 29; Jahanara Alam 3/23) vs Bangladesh: 46 in 14.4 overs (5/5, Shakera Selman 2/12).
