They had a shaky start to the chase but contributions from the lower-order batters helped them run down the total with four balls to spare. They will be riding with confidence after that four-wicket win and will look to carry forward the winning momentum.
Bangladesh Women faced England Women in their warm-up fixture and suffered a heavy loss. They didn’t have the best of starts to the preparation and will be looking to turn the tables around.
