We are back for the run chase! The Indian players are out in the middle. Shamima Sultana and Murshida Khatun are the two openers for Bangladesh. Deepti Sharma with the ball first up. One slip in place. Here we go...
Deepti starts with a quicker ball around middle, Shamima works it towards mid-wicket for a quick run as Verma makes a diving stop.
Yes, no, yes no, but they complete the run eventually. Loopy ball outside off, Murshida nudges it towards point and takes off for a run. The fielder at point dives but fails to stop it cleanly and they eventually go for the run.

Tossed up delivery on middle, Shamima flicks it towards mid-wicket for a single.

OUT! Shikha Pandey draws first blood! Change in length works. A scrambled seam delivery, a touch short in length and holding a bit off the surface. Sultana tries lifting it over the infield on the off side but is early into the shot. She mistimes it in the air at extra cover where Deepti Sharma dives across to her left to take a fine catch. 5/1
Sanjida Islam is the next batter in.
FOUR! Excellent shot! Flighted full ball on middle, Murshida kneels and heaves it over mid-wicket for a superb boundary. It's important for them to get off to a good start against the new ball.
Top stop by Jemimah! Fuller in length and outside off, Khatun drills it down the ground and Rodrigues dives across to stop the racing ball.
FOUR! Poor delivery by Sharma and it has been duly punished by Khatun. Short in length and outside off, begging to be hit, Murshida hangs on the back foot and whacks it through backward point.
FOUR! This is buffet bowling. Trying too many variations. It's short and around leg on this occasion, Khatun gets back inside the crease and hammers it behind square leg.
Gets away with one. Short and outside off, Khatun cuts but finds the point fielder.
IN THE AIR... SAFE! Deepti eventually gets her line and length right but Shafali Verma disappoints with her fielding effort. The young girl is quite slow to move. Loopy full ball around off, slower through the air, Khatun attempts for a slog sweep but it takes the top edge. The ball flies behind square leg, Verma runs back a bit and tries to catch but fails to reach out. Two more runs added to the total, making it a 14-run over. 19/1
