Jahanara hat-trick seals clean sweep for Bangladesh

Bangladesh Women recorded a clean 4-0 sweep of Hong Kong who crashed to another humiliating defeat in Mirpur

Bangladesh Women recorded a clean 4-0 sweep of Hong Kong who crashed to another humiliating defeat in Mirpur. Bangladesh have completely outplayed Hong Kong all series and their 211 for 9 was always going to be more than sufficient, even if they did lose their last five wickets for 36. Salma Khatun top-scored with 63. Hong Kong got off to a reasonably competent start, with their captain – the New Zealand-born Neisha Pratt – again standing out with 61. That was Hong Kong’s only peak, however: the next highest scores were 14 and 6 while the rest – including Nos. 5-11 - all registered ducks. The match was wrapped up in the 41st over with Jahanara Alam, bowling her first over, removing the last three to claim a hat-trick and dismiss Hong Kong for 96.

    now icc should consider giving Bangladesh Women Cricket Team full member status immediately so that these splendid works can be remembered throughout the international cricket history.

    BCB should take up this point to icc and arrange monetary wages to the cricketers.

    Best wishes for the bangladeshi girls. We are proud of you.

    Well Done again. But Bangladeshi women should keep wrrking hard to rich the test level teams. Upcoming Asia cup will be a great test for them. Only then Bangladesh can realize where are they standing at now.
