Bangladesh's women's cricket team creates history as they defeat India's women's cricket team in an ODI


India's women's cricket team gave a very poor performance as they lost the opening ODI match to Bangladesh's women's cricket team by 40 runs, their first-ever defeat against the minnows in the 50-over format, on Sunday. While deciding to bowl first, young fast bowler Amanjot Kaur made an impressive ODI debut, taking 4 wickets while giving away 31 runs as Bangladesh were restricted to 152 in 43 overs.

But while chasing the easy target of 152 runs, Team India got bundled out for 113 in 35.5 overs. Deepti Sharma top-scored for India with a 40-ball 20, whereas Marufa Akter picked up four wickets for Bangladesh, giving away 29 runs.

Earlier, the 23-year-old Amanjot accounted for opener Murshida Khatun, Fargana Hoque, captain Nigar Sultana, and Rabeya Khan as Bangladesh struggled in the match reduced to a 44-overs-a-side affair due to rain.

Nigar Sultana was the highest run-scorer for the host team at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, scoring 39 and sharing a crucial 49-run partnership with Fargana Hoque. The last batter in Bangladesh, Shorna Akther, did not come out to bat in the 44th over as she was injured.
