BAN-W vs PAK-W: Bowlers shine in Pakistan’s 5-wicket win over Bangladesh


The first ODI of the Pakistan Women tour of Bangladesh 2023 witnessed an engaging battle between Bangladesh Women and Pakistan Women at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur.

After winning the toss, Bangladesh Women opted to bat first. However, a dominant display by the Pakistani bowlers restricted Bangladesh to a mere 81 runs in 31.5 overs, with Sadia Iqbal, Nida Dar and Umme Hani leading the bowling attack, claiming four, three and three wickets, respectively.

Bangladesh’s batting effort was led by Fahima Khatun‘s resilient knock of 18 runs, but the team failed to build a substantial partnership, resulting in a paltry total.

Pakistan Innings

In response, Pakistan Women displayed a composed batting performance, registering a convincing 5-wicket victory in 24.5 overs. Nida Dar’s resilient 35-run contribution guided Pakistan to the target, with valuable support from Aliya Riaz‘s 16 runs.

The Bangladesh Women’s bowling unit, despite their efforts, couldn’t defend the set target, with Nahida Akter leading the attack, claiming three wickets for 30 runs in 8.5 overs.

With this win, Pakistan have made a successful start of the ODI-leg after losing the T20I series by 2-1.

On the other hand, Bangladesh would look to regroup and strategize for the upcoming matches, aiming to turn the tide in their favour as the three-match ODI series continues.
