Dominant India Beat Bangladesh, Extend Series Lead to 4-0

India Beat Bangladesh: In a rain-curtailed fourth women’s T20 match against Bangladesh, India continued their dominant streak, securing a 56-run victory via the Duckworth-Lewis method. Despite a delayed start and persistent interruptions due to rain and hail, India managed to post a challenging total of 122 for 6 in 14 overs, thanks to crucial contributions from Harmanpreet Kaur (39) and Richa Ghosh (24).

The hosts, faced with a revised target of 125 in 14 overs, struggled to keep up with the required run rate. Apart from opener Dilara Akter (21), Rubya Haider (13), and Shorifa Khatun (11 not out), the Bangladeshi batters failed to make significant contributions as they lost wickets in clusters.

India’s bowlers capitalized on the situation, with debutant leg spinner Asha Shobhana impressing with figures of 2/18 in three overs. Senior all-rounder Deepti Sharma also made an impact, claiming 2 wickets for 13 runs. Radha Yadav and Pooja Vastrakar chipped in with a wicket each as India restricted Bangladesh to 68/7.

Notably, Harmanpreet Kaur, playing her 300th international game, played a crucial role in inflating India’s total alongside the big-hitting Richa Ghosh. The duo shared a partnership characterized by positive intent, smashing eight boundaries and a six in just 28 deliveries.

Despite losing early wickets, including that of opener Shafali Verma (2) and Smriti Mandhana (22), India managed to build a competitive total before rain interruptions halted play.

With this win, India extends their lead to 4-0 in the five-match series, showcasing their dominance in the ongoing series against Bangladesh.
