Bowlers set up India's big win

ESPNcricinfo staff

India Women 66 for 2 (Mehta 23, Goswami 18*) beat Bangladesh Women 65 for 9 (Yadav 2-9, Goswami 2-15) by eight wickets

An incisive bowling performance from India Women, spearheaded by the medium-pacer Jhulan Goswami and the legspinner Poonam Yadav, helped the team comprehensively beat Bangladesh Women by eight wickets in Cox's Bazar.

Bangladesh, batting first, could only muster 65 from their 20 overs, as regular wickets from Goswami (2-15) and Yadav (2-9) rattled their top and middle order. Shikha Pandey also chipped in with one scalp, but Bangladesh weren't helped by their poor running, as run-outs accounted for four dismissals. Three batters went for ducks, while only four players managed to reach double digits.

India made little work of the paltry chase, as Pandey and Madhuri Mehta put up 45 for the first wicket. The pair fell in quick succession of each other, but Goswami and Harmanpreet Kaur took the team home in 12.3 overs.

    @Farooq3 Please read heading - Bowlers set up India's big win

    It's big because India won by 8wickets and 45balls remaining in a T20 format its indeed huge.

    It's not always winning by huge run margin means big. Please learn English.

    Scoring 66 runs can hardly be termed as a big win - it might be convincing though!
