Pakistan women 78 for 3 (Javeria 36, Muneeba 18*)
Bangladesh women 77 (Natalia 3-20, Sana 2-10)
Result: Pakistan women won by seven wickets
After the ignominy of being bowled out for 30 last week, Bangladesh women's were beaten after making a disappointing 81 for 8 two nights ago. On Saturday (Oct 6), they were shot out for 77 in Cox's Bazar before Pakistan chased down the target in 14.5 overs to win by seven wickets and pocket the T20I series 3-0.
Yet another abject batting effort saw Bangladesh women’s cricket team getting clean swept by their Pakistani counterparts in the four-match Twenty20 international series at Cox’s Bazar on Saturday.
In the fourth and final match of the series at the Sheikh Kamal International Stadium, Pakistan recorded a seven-wicket win to complete a 3-0 sweep over the hosts.
Pakistan won the second and third match of the series by 58 runs and seven wickets respectively after the first match was declared abandoned due to the wet outfield.
The Tigresses, who were flying before the series thanks to their Asia Cup triumph, bilateral series win over Ireland and ICC World Twenty20 qualifiers, came into the final game for a consolation win having already going down 0-2.
But Bangladeshi batters, who were dismissed for their lowest ever score of 30 in the second match, let the team down again as they could not put not more than 77 runs on the board despite electing to bat first.
Pakistan raced to 78-3 in 14.5 overs courtesy of skipper Javeria Khan’s 36 off 39 balls with five fours and Muneeba Ali’s unbeaten 18 off 23 balls.
Bangladesh Skipper Salma Kathun, spinners Rumana Ahmed and Khadija Tul Kubra claimed one wicket each but they were not enough to prevent Pakistan from recording a comprehensive win.
Bangladesh lost the game within 10 overs of their innings when they were left reduced to 32-5.
Rumana hit 24 off 31 balls while Fahima Khatun added 14 off 15 balls to give the innings some respectively though it could not put Pakistan into any trouble.
Both the teams will now compete in a one-day international match which will take place on Monday (Oct 8) at the same venue.
