Sri Lanka Women57(19.4 overs)

As they say - small totals are always tricky. Excellent bowling and fielding from Bangladesh, they made up for their poor batting performance by staying focused on the field.

Sri Lankan batswomen just overdid it, they went after the fly with a bazooka and paid the price. Instead of pacing their innings, they just let the pressure build by not rotating the strike and got out to wild shots and in the end just crumbled in front of a charged up performance from Bangladesh.

Salma Khatun is the player of the match. India v Pakistan starts in an hours, so stay connected...
