10.15pm So there we have it, a convincing 18-run victory for India, although Bangladesh were gallant, they just failed to string a strong enough partnership together and score rapidly enough to chase down the target of 143. Player of the match is indeed Shafali Verma, whose quick-fire 39 off 17 balls, including four sixes, set the foundation for her side. Jemimah Rodrigues contributed 34 off 37 while Veda Krishnamurthy's cameo of 20 not out off 11 at the end of the innings, pushed their total up. That makes it two wins from as many matches for India at this tournament and they are sitting pretty at the top of Group A.

shoeb Ahmed say: "Well played Women in Blue, it is an overall team performance, Good show Girlz." ... Girlz rulz ok!

Shafali Verma tells Sky Sports she wanted to step up in the absence of Smriti Mandhana, who was missing through illnesss: "I had that in my mind, since Smriti wasn't around, I wanted to take the responsibility and play as much as I can. I am very happy. I want to continue doing what I'm doing, being here for a long time has helped and I want to continue doing well for the team."

Harmanpreet Kaur is hopeful Smriti will be fit for their next match, against New Zealand on Thursday. "Hopefully. She is feeling better now, we do have two or three days and I hope she will recover well." She was also pleased with Veda Krishnamurthy's knock: "The way Veda played today was the turning point for us because at that time we needed a few boundaries and she did a great job for us."

So ends our live coverage from this match in Perth. Thank you so much for joining us and we look forward to doing it all again very soon! Until then, cheerio.
