Tigresses confess defeat to England

Staff Correspondent
Towards the end of England's innings, the pressure of Bangladesh bowlers became loose. Chasing the difficult target, many runs were scored in the opening over. The Tigers had to finish their debut World Cup with a big rate as no one could lengthen the innings.

Bangladesh lost the Women's ODI World Cup by 100 runs in Wellington's Basin Reserve on Sunday. After winning the toss and choosing to bat, the English took 234 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in 50 overs. In reply, they were reduced to 134 runs with 12 balls to spare.

Earlier, Bangladesh played in the T20 World Cup but this is the first time that Bangladesh has qualified for the Women's ODI World Cup. They have played seven matches in the first leg of the eight-team tournament and lost six.

The memory of Bangladesh's participation in the World Cup for the first time will remain unforgettable due to the loss to Pakistan. They finished the event by occupying the seventh position in the points list with only 2 points. Pakistan is at the bottom of the net run rate with equal points in equal matches.

Batting has hurt Bangladesh in the whole event. Captain Nigar Sultana Jyoti has repeatedly said that the batsmen have to match themselves. But that expectation has not been fulfilled even today. Chasing 235 runs, two openers Shamima Sultana and Sharmin Akhter played 17.5 overs to add 42 runs! After that, no pair was formed.

Bangladesh lost wickets at regular intervals and was all out for only 134 runs. Only Lata Mandal continued to play a bit. She made 30 runs off 45 balls adding 3-fours. Shamima spent 74 balls to make 23 runs. Sharmin played 50 balls to make 23 runs. Nigar played an innings of 22 runs off 36 balls.

Earlier, England got good capital in the last storm. They added 66 runs in the last 47 balls. Match winner Sophia Dunkley has a big credit behind this. She made 67 runs off 72 balls adding 8-fours. Katherine Brunt is unbeaten on 24 off 22 balls and Sophie Ecclestone is unbeaten on 17 off 11 balls. Tamsin Beaumont (33 off 69 balls), Nat Sciver (40 off 57 balls), and Amy Jones (31 off 47 balls) led the way for the English, who lost two wickets for 26 runs.

Off-spinner Salma Khatun, who had shaken Australia in the previous match, showed a glimpse again. She took 2 wickets for 46 runs in 10 overs. Besides, Jahanara Alam, Ritu Moni, Fahima Khatun, and Lata took the wickets.
