Women's T20 World Cup
Bangladesh suffer defeat against Pakistan in warm-up game
|| ICC ||
Pakistan cruised to a six-wicket win at Western Province Cricket Club, chasing down 102 in 16 overs against Bangladesh as Nida Dar teamed up with young-gun Ayesha Naseem.
The pair finished 24* and 20* respectively, calmly accounting for Bangladesh's attack.
Scoring was tough on a slow track for Bangladesh, who fought tooth and nail to reach three figures, eventually making 101.
Nigar Sultana Joty's side struggled to find the one partnership to take the game on, as Pakistan made hay largely through their spin group, with Dar and Nashra Sundhu claiming two wickets each.
In other news, Sobhana Mostary limped off the field during Bangladesh's fielding innings, requiring treatment both on and off the field.
She eventually walked back to the Bangladesh dugout unassisted, and is likely to play in the second warm-up fixture.
