BIG NEWS: Cricket World Cup (Women): India beat Bangladesh by 110 Runs

The Women’s Indian Cricket Team won from Bangladesh by a massive 110 runs on Tuesday in Hamilton.

Yastika Bhatia and Sneh Rana’s heroics keep India women in conflict for a semi-final spot. Opting to bat, India recovered around the middle of the game as they made 229 for 7. Defending the total, the spinners led by Rana (4/30) controlled the proceedings as they struck at regular intervals.

India surprised everyone after it took all the 10 wickets of Bangladesh at 119 runs and 40.3 overs. This big win helped the women’s cricket team to improve their net run rate (0.768) further.

Now, India will take on South Africa in the final league match on Sunday. Before that match, if the second-placed team beats West Indies on Thursday, then India’s semifinal chances will get better.

India’s decision to bring in senior spinner Poonam Yadav (1/25) in place of pacer Meghna Singh was a great decision. With spinners operating from both ends on a slow track, Bangladesh found the run-scoring difficult.
