Bangladesh and Hong Kong are all set to lock horns in the fourth quarterfinal of the Asian Games 2023 Women’s Cricket. The Pingfeng Campus Cricket Field in Hangzhou will be hosting this clash on Friday, September 22.
Bangladesh have a strong squad at their disposal for the tournament. Nigar Sultana Joty remains their top batter and she needs to lead the Tigresses from the front in the championship.
Marufa Akter, who is a fan of Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya, has impressed with her raw pace. The focus will also be on Fargana Hoque Pinky, who recently scored a hundred against Harmanpreet Kaur’s India.
Bangladesh also have a strong bowling attack, comprising Rabeya Khan, Fahima Khatun, and Nahida Akter. The likes of Ritu Moni and Lata Mondal are experienced as well.
Hong Kong, led by Kary Chan, started their Asian Games campaign with a 22-run defeat against Malaysia. However, they made amends by beating Mongolia by 180 runs in the Qualifier – Quarterfinal.
