India thrash Bangladesh in Asian Games women's cricket semis
Bangladesh women's team faced a crushing eight wicket defeat to India in the semi-final of the Asian Games 2023 in Hangzhou on Sunday.
Electing to bat Bangladesh were bundled out for just 51 runs followed by a horrible batting collapse courtesy of Indian medium pacer Pooja Vastrakar's four wicket haul.
For the Tigresses Nigar Sultana Joty remained the only batter to reach the double figure as none of the batters were able to make an impact and were eventually bundled out in 17.5 overs.
In reply India reached the target in 8.2 overs losing two wickets where Jemimah Rodrigues remained unbeaten on twenty runs.
Bangladesh women's team still have a chance to win the bronze if they win the third place decider game against the losing team between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the other semi-final.
