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...

Salma Khatun to Prabodhani, OUT, run out and it's all over! pushed away on the off side and they scamper through for a single, there was never a run there - Ruma just lobs the ball to the bowler and the bails are off in a flash - Bangladesh win by 5 runs

KDU Prabodhani run out (Rumana Ahmed/Salma Khatun) 2 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Salma Khatun to Prabodhani, 2 runs, punched to deep midwicket
Salma Khatun to Ranaweera, OUT, another one! that should do - comes down the track to play and is beaten, keeper does the rest. Salma Khatun on a roll here. Sri Lanka 9 down - Amazing cricket from Bangladesh
