Bangladesh ease to second win

Bangladesh’s women comfortably won the second of four ODIs against Hong Kong, and although the margin of victory - 109 runs – was large, Hong Kong put up a better display that they had in the first game.

Bangladesh’s women comfortably won the second of four ODIs against Hong Kong, and although the margin of victory - 109 runs – was large, Hong Kong put up a better display that they had in the first game.

Bangladesh’s top order did little but a fourth-wicket stand of 156 between Panna Ghosh and Salma Khutan guided them to 249 for 5, always enough against a side who had been bowled out for 38 three days earlier.

Hong Kong started well, Connie Wong and Keenu Gill putting on 89 for the first wicket but once Gill had gone for 62 the innings disintegrated and the last eight wickets added only 41.

    Heartiest congratulations to the team. But, like I said earlier, they should start playing against more accomplished sides. That would not only be very educational, but would also give our ladies the experience they need to be considered the "new kid in the neighborhood".

    My heartiest congratulations to the team. But, like I said earlier, our next endeavor should definitely be against a stronger opponent. Our weaknesses (of which I am sure we have quite a lot)need to be exposed, examined and worked on. Then only can the Bangladeshi ladies claim to be "the new kid in the neighborhood"!

    Bangladesh should play against the teams like India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. That will make them more competitive in women cricket.

    Bangladesh should aim for a second whitewash in as many weeks.
