Bangladesh had a disastrous start losing four wickets in 30 runs but captain Nigar Sultana put on a stiff fight scoring 51 runs off 48 balls before bowing to Pooja Vastrakar.

Indian national women’s cricket team led by Harmanpreet Kaur is on tour to Bangladesh for a five-match WT20I series against hosts Bangladesh.
