We’re still in the same ballpark as in a doubleheader. I have dried up. It was wet earlier and thus was an aid to shooters. Spinners will get some buying if they dry in the right places. But again it’s good striking ground.
India continues to experiment as Harmanpreet Kaur has been rested in this game and Smriti Mandhana is leading the side. A total of three changes were made with the arrival of Shafali Verma, Karan Nogire, and Sunya Rana. Bangladesh has only made one change with Lata Mondal to replace Shamima Sultana.
Shafali Verma | Player of the Match:
I am always ready to give my best (bat and ball) to the team. It was a bit difficult to hit on her because the ball was low. I have worked hard, and I would like to thank my family and friends for their support. We are very happy with our performance, everyone played very well.
Smriti Mandana | Captain Indian Woman:
It was a disappointment last game. It’s good to be back after this loss, really proud of the girls. Today was a whole team performance. Chafali played well and Jamma played well. We could have scored 10 extra runs while hitting. We had to keep playing paintball, and we had to wait for the batsmen to make mistakes, which they did. Bowling very well.
Negar Sultana Bangladesh Woman Captain:
We didn’t play well in the power game, we played a lot of loose balls. We didn’t get much of a run in our strength either. Our core bowlers can’t follow through with their plans. When we were hitting, we couldn’t take advantage of the loose balls. Romana came later, to make up for the leaks that were leaked by shooters in the powerplay.
