India vs Bangladesh Women’s (INDW vs BANW) T20, Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 Highlights: India beat Bangladesh by 18 runs in their second match of the Women’s T20 World Cup in Perth on Monday to sit pretty at the top of Group A. Poonam Yadav stars again with three wickets for 18 runs, in addition to Shafali Verma’s whirlwind 17-ball 39.

Earlier, India batted first and posted 142/6 on a WACA pitch that wasn’t particularly easy to bat on. After the rapid start that Shafali Verma afforded them (39 off 17), however, perhaps they could have posted more. After an extended period without a boundary in the middle overs, Veda Krishnamurthy (20* off 11) finished off the innings strongly.

19:46 (IST)24 Feb 2020
India make it two wins from two

India sit pretty at the top of Group A - win by 18 runs and trump Bangladesh in their second T20 World Cup Group Stage encounter. Poonam Yadav stars again with three wickets for 18 runs, in addition to Shafali Verma's whirlwind 17-ball 39.

19:42 (IST)24 Feb 2020
BOWLED!

Shikha Pandey nails the yorker on the first ball of the final over and Rumana Ahmed's stumps are rattled and she walks back on 13 off 8.

19:41 (IST)24 Feb 2020
India on cusp of victory

Bangladesh need an improbable 22 off the final over. That too against Shikha Pandey who was superb against Australia.

19:40 (IST)24 Feb 2020
Stumped!!

They're still trying to figure out how to hit Poonam Yadav. And on the basis of this evidence, they're getting nowhere. Jahanara comes down charging, looking to hit it hard but this slow, cunning leg-break dips through her. Miles out. Easy stumping.

19:40 (IST)24 Feb 2020
Gone!

WICKET ! Bangladesh lose their 6th wicket in the form of Nigar Sultana. She is gone for 35(26). Reddy picks up the wicket and the score for BAN-106/6 in 16.4 overs.

19:28 (IST)24 Feb 2020
WICKET

Poonam Yadav  removes Fahima Khatun to break the dangerous looking partnership and give India the much-needed breakthrough. The 100 comes up for Bangladesh in the 16th over, they need 40 runs in 24 balls. Nigar Sultana and Jahanara Alam in the middle 

19:18 (IST)24 Feb 2020
Much-needed boundary

FOUR! Fahima Khatun looks to sweep a fullish delivery but gets a leading edge for four down third man. Next ball, same shot, same result. Much needed luck for Bangladesh.  BAN- 85/4 after 14 overs

19:10 (IST)24 Feb 2020
Arundhati Reddy strikes again

 
 
Reddy doing the right thing of keeping the runs under control n picking wickets in the process as well. Fargana Hoque is gone and Bangladesh lose two wickets in as many overs and India are right back in this contest. BAN- 66/4 after 11.3 ovs

19:07 (IST)24 Feb 2020
Excellent Review

Poonam Yadav gets Sanjida Islam... with a gutsy review from Taniya Bhatia. The keeper appealed for a caught behind, Harmanpreet was not too convinced but went for DRS anyway and it showed a slight edge.  Score after 11 overs, BANW 61-3

18:57 (IST)24 Feb 2020
Big wicket!

Mushida Khatun looked good for her 30, but now she has to go. Lofted off the toe of the bat and Murshida Khatun is caught at mid-off for 30, Arundhati Reddy with the wicket. Bangladesh 44/2 after 8 overs.

18:51 (IST)24 Feb 2020
Run out chance

There was a run out chance there but the fielder sent the ball to the wrong end. Indian captain Harmanpreet Kaur seemed furious with the effort. 5 runs from the over.

18:46 (IST)24 Feb 2020
PowerPlay Ends

Another good over from Shikha Pandey as India don't let Bangladesh run riot in the Powerplay. Murshida Khatun is batting well on 22 in just 16 balls. She could hold the key for them. BAN- 33/1 after 6 ovs

18:33 (IST)24 Feb 2020
Dropped!

 
M Khatun is playing the horizontal bat shots freely. There was a chance of the last ball of the Deepti over but Shafali could not quite hold onto it. BAN- 19/1 after 3 overs
 

18:28 (IST)24 Feb 2020
Gone! Shikha Pandey strikes

Shikha Pandey with the early breakthrough for India. Shamima Sultana tries to hit down the ground but a cross-seam delivery from Shikha has Shamima Sultana through her shot early and spoons it to Deepti Sharma. Bangladesh are 5/1 after 2 overs

18:26 (IST)24 Feb 2020
Bangladesh begin run-chase

Shamima Sultana and Murshida Khatun are at the crease. Deepti Sharma will open the attack. Miserly spell from Sharma. Shamima Sultana starting slowly here: current scoring rate is too slow. BAN- 3/0 after 1 over

18:06 (IST)24 Feb 2020
India finish on 142/6

A very good final over from Jahanara Alam with only 5 off it. But Veda Krishnamurthy's vital 20 off 11 gives India the highest total at this T20 World Cup so far. India finish on 142/6, Bangladesh need 143 to win  

17:55 (IST)24 Feb 2020
Much needed boundary

Three boundaries from Veda has pumped some life back in this Indian innings.  15 runs off the over! Veda Krishnamurthy makes it count. INDW- 129/6 after 18 overs

17:50 (IST)24 Feb 2020
Horrible mix-up

WICKET! Lack of communication in the middle costs India another wicket as Deepti Sharma departs for 11. IND 113/6 in 16.5 overs

17:45 (IST)24 Feb 2020
WICKET!

Richa Ghosh goes for a big hit, doesn't get the connection right and is caught at the fence by Nahida Akter. IND 111/5 in 16.2 overs

17:45 (IST)24 Feb 2020
Run Out!!

Run Out!! Jemimah is run out after a brilliant piece of work by Nahida Akter. She created indecision with her diving stop at point. Jemimah wanted the run after cracking the full toss away, but was sent back once Deepti saw Nahida make the save. Nahida followed up the effort with a very accurate throw too, and even a dive isn't enough to save Jemimah
