Scorecard

India opened without their first-choice pair and still did not have any trouble in beating Bangladesh by seven wickets to take an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the Twenty20 international series. Bangladesh were restricted to 88 after choosing to bat, and Anagha Deshpande and Mona Meshram put on 52 upfront as the hosts eased to victory in 18 overs.

Bangladesh lost just four wickets but were never able to get going, an opening stand of 30 in 9.3 overs between Shahanaz Parvin and Farzana Haque summing up their struggles. Shukhtara Rahman and Salma Khatun tried to make something out of the remaining overs but the former's run-out in the 17th over dented Bangladesh's hopes of a late charge. India's bowlers kept a tight control over proceedings through the innings, left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht setting the tone with a spell of 1 for 11 in four overs along with medium-pacer Nagarajan Niranjana's 1 for 14.

Thirush Kamini did not bat in the chase, and her opening partner and vice-captain Poonam Raut came in as low as No. 5. Deshpande and Meshram ensured India did not miss their regular openers, who had put on 130 in the first T20.

Panna Ghosh took a couple of quick wickets to reduce India to 63 for 3 but captain Harmanpreet Kaur and her deputy Raut were around to steer their side home.
