Women defeated the United States by 270 runs in the second match of the World
Cup qualifiers on Tuesday, owing to Sharmin Akhter Supta's magnificent century.
Bangladesh reached 322 for 5 after their allotted 50 overs, with Sharmin unbeaten on 130 off 141 balls. She and Murshida Khatun put together a 96-run opening partnership before the latter left for 46 runs. Nigar Sultana Joty, the skipper, then came in and produced a cameo of 33 runs off 26 balls. Fargana Hoque Pinky walked away with a fifty and a score of 67.
However, this match is not getting ODI recognition as the USA Women do not have ODI status. A few days ago, the ICC decided to count the 50-over matches as List-A, so it will be recorded as a List-A hundred for Sharmin.
Moksha Chaudhary took a brace of 64s in her ten overs for the USA.
For US Women, chasing down a huge 323 has never looked like a good idea.
From the start of their chase, they kept losing wickets at regular intervals and were eventually swept out for a pitiful 52.
Tara Norris and skipper Sindhu Sriharsha were the only ones to achieve double figures.
