Bangladesh defeated the Maldives by 249 runs to end their league campaign in SA Games women’s cricket.

The Maldives were bundled out for only 6 runs in 12.1 overs, in reply to Bangladesh’s 255/2.

Only three of their batters could score runs. 2 runs came from extras. 

Ritu Moni and Salma Khatun took three wickets each. The Maldives batters did not have any answer to the Bangladesh bowling attack.

Earlier, Bangladesh posted a huge total in their third match in SA Games women’s cricket against the Maldives. 

After winning the toss, skipper Salma Khatun elected to bat first at Pokhara.

Bangladesh lost two early wickets within the first two overs, as Shamima Sultana and Sanjida Islam went cheaply.

But the game changed with a mammoth third-wicket partnership between Niger Sultana and Fargana Hoque.

The batters added 236 runs in 18 overs, to give Bangladesh a total of 255/2.

Fargana was first to reach the century. She battered the opponent bowling attack to all parts of the ground and was not out on 110 runs from 53 deliveries. Her innings included 20 boundaries.

Then, it was Nigar’s turn. She also joined the mayhem and hit 14 boundaries and three sixes. Nigar was unbeaten on 113 from 65 balls.

Bangladesh are the only unbeaten side in the tournament, and now they await their opponents for Sunday’s final.

They will face the winners of Nepal vs Sri Lanka match, which will take place on Friday.
