It was a pleasure bringing you all the updates and action from the finals of the Women's Asia Cup. Bangladesh ending six-time winners India's hegemony as they become just the second team to lift the title. The game was worthy off the final, going down to the last ball. A new competition for India's women, always a good sign that. Time for us to say goodbye and thank you for your company.

Salma Khatun, Bangladesh captain: I feel very happy about winning the Asia Cup for the first time. We had some confidence, having beaten in India in the first match. They had a lot to lose, and we had a lot to achieve. Thank you to all the Bangladeshi supporters. Our first match was not that good, but we made a fine comeback after that.

Harmanpreet Kaur, Indian captain: We had to control our nerves. We had to bat the situation, and play to our skills. It was not a decent total, but still we fought till the end. 

14:47 (IST)

Oh what a game. Salma Khatun, who has been captain for so long, emotional at the end. You have got to say, the braver team, if not the better team, won. Bangladesh played with real belief, a big shift in mentality for a  hitherto minnow. A big wake up call for India, their T20 form leaves a lot to be desired in the last few months.

Harmanpeet bowls the final over, with the over summing up the thriller of a final that this turned out to be! Two singles and a boundary are collected off the first three balls. Sanjida holes out to long on while trying to finish off in style. Rumana is run-out thanks to some carelessness in the fifth delivery. Jahanara Alam though, finishes off in style for the Bangladeshis with a well-timed heave towards deep midwicket, coming back for a second run. The fielder in the deep collected the ball cleanly, but the throw was not well-directed.

Earlier on Saturday, India dished out a clinical performance to hammer arch-rivals Pakistan by seven wickets and enter their seventh straight final.

Going in to the final, India will be wary of Bangladesh's prowess, having lost to them in the league stages and would aim to avenge the humiliation en-route to their seventh consecutive title.

Against the Pakistanis, the Harmanpreet Kaur-led side had a rather easy outing barring the tricky chase that saw them lose two wickets with just five runs on the board.

Electing to bat, Pakistan folded up for a meagre 72/7 with Sana Mir (20 not out) and Nahida Khan (18) managing to reach the double figures in a lacklustre batting effort.

In response, Harmanpreet (34 not out) and her deputy Smriti Mandhana (38) steered India to a comfortable victory with 23 balls to spare after starting on a shaky note.

Earlier, left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht spun a web around the Pakistanis with three wickets, and was well assisted by the other Indian bowlers who stuck to a disciplined effort.

During their chase, India got off to a forgettable start, losing former skipper Mithali Raj and Deepti Sharma for ducks with the scoreboard ticking 5/2.

But thereafter the defending champions did not look back as the left-right combo of Smriti and Harmanpreet forged a brilliant 65-run third wicket stand to take the side within sniffing distance of victory.

Later in the day, Bangladesh rode on a collective batting effort to score 130/4 after electing to bat. In reply, the hosts could manage a paltry 60/9 in their 20 overs.

Teams:

Bangladesh Women: Shamima Sultana(w), Ayasha Rahman, Fargana Hoque, Sanjida Islam, Nigar Sultana, Rumana Ahmed, Fahima Khatun, Jahanara Alam, Salma Khatun(c), Khadija Tul Kubra, Nahida Akter, Jannatul Ferdus, Panna Ghosh, Sharmin Sultana, Lily Rani

India Women: Mithali Raj, Smriti Mandhana, Harmanpreet Kaur(c), Veda Krishnamurthy, Deepti Sharma, Anuja Patil, Taniya Bhatia(w), Jhulan Goswami, Shikha Pandey, Poonam Yadav, Ekta Bisht, Jemimah Rodrigues, Pooja Vastrakar, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Mona Meshram
