The second game of the three-match ODI series between Zimbabwe Women and Bangladesh Women will be played on November 13. Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, will host this encounter.
The first game saw Bangladesh Women walk past Zimbabwe Women to get an early lead in the series. It was a dismal batting performance from the hosts as they suffered a heavy loss in their first game.
After being asked to bat first, Zimbabwe Women failed to adapt to the conditions as they were knocked over on 48 in the 24th over. Only Precious Marange got into double digits as Bangladesh bowlers ran through the Zimbabwean batting lineup.
It was a daunting task ahead of the hosts to defend 49 and they tried their level best. They sent both Bangladeshi openers back to the pavilion but there weren’t enough runs to defend as Fargana Hoque and Rumana Ahmed ensured there were no further hiccups in the chase.
Bangladesh chased down the total in the 11th over with eight wickets in hand. The hosts need to play out of their skin in the second game to keep the series alive.
