Asian Cricket Council Women's Twenty20 Asia Cup - Group B

Bangladesh Women v Nepal Women

Bangladesh Women won by 9 wickets (with 57 balls remaining)

Hello and welcome to the the live coverage of Day 3 of the ACC Women's T20 Asian Games.

As usual the weather is just fantastic and we are all set for the start of the 1st game of the day. Salma Khatun, the Bangladesh captain has won the toss and they will field first.

Nepal had a tough time against Sri Lanka yesterday, it was their batting that did not click, today they go in first - so it will be interesting to see their approach.

Umpires are walking in, followed by the Bangladesh team.

And here comes the bats-women. It will be Rana Magar and Rekha Rawal to open the batting.

Jahanara Alam is at the top of her run up and It's Rawal on strike - here we go!

0.1

0.2

Jahanara Alam to Rawal, no run, bit wide outside the off stump but not wide enough to interest the umpire, Alam starts off with two dot balls

0.3

Jahanara Alam to Rawal, no run, again that line and length outside the off stump, Rawal leaves it through to the keeper
