India W will throw away a gripping challenge for Bangladesh W in the 15th match of the Women’s Asia Cup 2022 to be played on Saturday. Harmanpreet Kaur & Girls will take the field after a disheartening defeat against Pakistan. Chasing a competitive total of 137 runs, India fell short of 13 runs and sustained their very first defeat of the season. Despite their poor outing, India still stands tall at the points-table standings with three wins in four games.
India W will definitely aim to get back to the winning ways in Saturday’s sword-off against Bangladesh. Indian batters need to step-up and score some handy runs, as none of them sail aside the 30 runs mark in the game against Pakistan. Richa Ghosh was the top-run scorer while scoring 26 runs off 13 balls. Indian bowlers also missed the spark, as all the bowlers were a bit expensive in their 4-over spell. Sneh Rana could make a comeback in the playing XI and Dayalan Hemalatha may miss the Friday’s game.
Bangladesh W will walk into Saturday’s T20 delight with an overpowering win over Malaysia W. Nigar Sultana-led side have impressed the cricket fraternity with their uplifted performance in the Women’s Asia Cup 2022, as they have won two of their three schedules and are front-runner for the semi-finals. In their last game, Bangladesh amassed 129 runs and bowled out Malaysia for mere 49 runs. Murshida Khatun was the top performer with the bat (56 runs off 54 balls) and Fariha Trisna wrecked Malaysia’s batting with three wickets haul.
Bangladesh will be eager to keep pace with the gained momentum. The Tigers will be against India after almost two years gap and will be looking forward to registering their first win against India in the last four years. Murshida Khatun scored a half century in the last game and will be aiming to offer a concrete start to Bangladesh alongside Shamima Sultana. On the bowling front, Salma Khatun, Fariha Trishna and Fahima Khatun will play a big role in Bangladesh’s success.
Based on current form, India Women will be clear favorites to win their game against Bangladesh Women. The Women In Blue have enough firepower in the batting and bowling department to overcome Bangladesh Women on any given day. Team India knows the art of bouncing-back after a tough day at work and will be the favorites to win Saturday’s game.
