Harmanpreet Kaur, Player of the Tournament:

Harmanpreet Kaur:  "The pressure game, and we had tyo control our nerves. We had to bat the situation and play to our skills. There was nothing much in the wicket. Credit goes to Bangladesh. They were excellent. There was hold on the wicket, and theree were very few areas for the medium pacers. But the spinners did a good job. It was not a decent total, but we fought til the end so the credit goes to the bowlers."
