Bangladesh Women gain ODI status

November 24, 2011

November 24, 2011 will be remembered as a red letter day in Bangladesh women’s cricket in future as on this very day the national woman team has gained one day international status beating the US team by nine wickets in an ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier game on Thursday.
Jubilant spectators at the BKSP-2 ground in Savar were treated to an impressive all-round display by the hosts who recorded an emphatic nine-wicket victory over USA in a fifth place semi-final play-off match.
Before registering the victory in an easy chase, Bangladesh bowlers restricted the USA to a paltry 78 runs.
Spinner Khadiza Tul Kubra continued her sensational form with the ball as she picked up four vital wickets for 20 runs.
With all to play for, the chase was equally thrilling.
A solid second-wicket partnership between Suktara Rahman and Farjana Hoque guided Bangladesh to a comfortable win in less than 18.5 overs. The two scored 29 and 27 respectively.
Earlier on Tuesday, Bangladesh’s dream of making a place in the Women’s World Cup to be held in India in 2013 was shattered following a six-wicket defeat to Sri Lanka in the play-off match at Mirpur.
