India vs Bangladesh, Women’s World Cup, Live Score Updates: Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Pooja Vastrakar Get India Early Breakthroughs | Cricket News





INDW vs BANW, Women’s World Cup, Live Updates: Bangladesh got off to a poor start in chase of 230 runs as they lost the wickets of Sharmin Akhter and Fargana Hoque to Rajeshwari Gayakwad and Pooja Vastrakar respectively early-on. India ended at 229/7 in 50 overs, thanks to a splendid innings of 50 runs by Yastika Bhatia and cameos from Shafali Verma as well as Richa Ghosh against Bangladesh in Hamilton. Opting to bat first, the Mithali-Raj side started well with Shafali and Smriti Mandhana going about their jobs pretty nicely. However, Bangladesh struck back with three quick wickets of Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma and Mithali Raj to put India on the backfoot. India further lost Harmanpreet and Richa Ghosh but Yastika Bhatia stood strong and scored a remarkable fifty to help India reach a respectable total in the end. (LIVE SCORECARD)

India made one change, bringing in Poonam Yadav in place of Meghna Singh while Lata Mondal and Murshida Khatun came into the Bangladesh side. If India manages to win their remaining two matches against Bangladesh and South Africa, then they will qualify for the last-four stage. Team India had lost their last match against Australia while Bangladesh suffered a narrow four-run loss against West Indies. Bangladesh who are currently at the seventh spot in the points table while India currently have four points from five games.

India Women (Playing XI): Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Yastika Bhatia, Mithali Raj(c), Harmanpreet Kaur, Richa Ghosh(w), Sneh Rana, Pooja Vastrakar, Jhulan Goswami, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Poonam Yadav

Mithali Raj at the toss: “We’ll have a bat. The same wicket was used for the last game. It’s slow and there’s turn for spinners. We would like to use the wicket first and put up a good score. It was a good game (against Australia). As a fielding unit, we couldn’t back our bowlers when it was required. The wicket will probably assist the spinners and we’d like our fielding unit to stand up. We’d like the batters to bat sensibly. We have just one change. Poonam Yadav comes in place of Meghna Singh.”
