Bangladesh Women's cricket team picked up their second win of the ongoing 13th South Asian Games (SA Games) after they outclassed Nepal by 10 wickets in their second game on Wednesday at Pokhara Rangasala, Pokhara.
Opted to bowl first after winning the toss, Bangladesh bowlers led by Rabeya Khan kept Nepal under pressure and dismissed them for a paltry 50 in 19.2 overs. Rabeya Khan impressed everyone with brilliant bowling displayed. She grabbed four wickets for eight runs including two maidens in her four over spell.
Only three Nepal's batsmen could reach double digit. Skipper Rubina Chhetry top scored 13 runs for Nepal. Bangladesh pacer Jahanara Alam also took two wickets as Nepal had no answer against Bangladeshi attack.
In response Bangladesh did not face any trouble as they chased down the goal comfortably with all 10 wickets in hand with 74 balls to spare. Rabeya Khan was adjudged the player of the match.
