India vs Bangladesh Highlights: India Women's Cricket team beat Bangladesh Women by a huge margin of 110 runs in a must-win encounter in the ICC Women's Cricket World Cup at Seddon Park in Hamilton. Courtesy of the big win, India's net run rate jumped up and it has now moved to third place behind Australia and South Africa in the Points Table. Sneh Ran starred in the victory with her all-around show of 4/30 with the ball and 27 off 23 balls with the bat. Other notable contributions came from Yastika Bhatia and Pooja Vastrakar
Ind W vs Ban W Player of the Match: Yastika Bhatia
Though it is hard to understand that Sneh Rana was not chosen as Player of the Match even after her brilliant showing with both bat and ball. But Yastika Bhatia was also a good choice for Player of the Match given that she steadied the ship when India lost three back to back wickets and also scored a fifty to add on to a fifty from her last game, showing consistency with the bat.
India Women vs Bangladesh Women: India win big
Bangladeshi chase never got going as they lost two wickets in the Powerplay and made only 19 runs, the lowest by any team in the Powerplay in this World Cup. However, even after the powerplay, their miserable run with the bat continued as they lost five wickets for 35 runs. Salma Khatun and Lata Mondal then added 40 for the sixth wicket, the only notable contribution with the bat. Post the breakup of that partnership, it was curtains as India hurriedly finished the Bangladeshi innings at 119.
Salma top scored with 32. While Sneh picked four wickets, Jhulan Goswami and Pooja Vastrakar picked two each and one wicket each went to Rajeshwari Gayakwad and Poonam Yadav
Earlier in the day, the Indian Women's team was able to get to 229/7 in its 50 overs, even as no batter apart from Yastika Bhatia was able to get past the 50 run mark. India, which started off well with 74 run opening stand, lost three wickets without a run being added in the scorecard. However, Yastika Bhatia made useful partnerships with Harmanpreet Kaur and Richa Ghosh before Sneh Rana (27) and Pooja Vastrakar (30) made quick runs in the last seven overs to get India to 229.
Ritu Moni was the pick of the bowlers for Bangladesh as she got three wickets for 37 runs.
