Bangladesh Women v South Africa Women – 1st ODI (South Africa Women tour of Bangladesh) – Match Update
Three-wicket hauls from Khadija Tul Kubra and Rumana Ahmed enabled the Bangladesh Women to claim a 2-wicket win over the South Africa Women during the first ODI of the ongoing South Africa Women tour of Bangladesh, at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur today on September 6.
The South Africa Women won the toss and elected to bat first, but were unable to rise beyond a meagre final total of 75, with Bangladesh’s Khadija Tul Kubra (8-3-8-3) and Rumana Ahmed (6.4-1-10-3) on the prowl.
The South Africa Women opened their innings with Shandre Fritz (4) and wicketkeeper Trisha Chetty (0), both of whom were unable to stick it out at the crease, dismissed one after the other in the second over – the former run out by Tazia Akhter, and the latter sent packing by Salma Khatun.
Coming in at number 3, Alison Hodgkinson (0) continued the disappointing trend, bowled by Jahanara Alam in the 3rd over. However, skipper Mignon du Preez (24) and Marizanne Kapp (11) offered the team some respite, with their 4th-wicket 37-run stand.
Kapp was sent back to the pavilion by Khadija Tul Kubra in the 14th over, and Yolandi van der Westhuizen (3) followed soon after, off the same bowler in the 16th over. Du Preez was eventually caught and bowled by Tazia Akhter, but Shabnim Ismail (9) and Suné Luus (15*) attempted to keep the momentum going, setting up a 21-run 7th-wicket stand, which got the team total up to 69 by the 26th over, after which Ismail was dismissed by Khadija Tul Kubra.
Rumana Ahmed polished off the lower order, comprising Sunette Loubser (0), Dinesha Devnarain (2), and Ayabonga Khaka (0), and the South Africa Women finished, all out, at 75 by the 35th over.
The 76-run target posed no difficulties for the Bangladesh Women, although they lost a number of wickets cheaply, faced with Loubser (10-0-32-3), Kapp (10-4-13-2), and Ismail (10-4-8-2).
The top order - Shukhtara Rahman (5), Sharmin Akhter (0), and skipper Salma Khatun (2) – all remained unremarkable. However, Lata Mondal chipped in with a top-score of 31, which formed the crux of the Bangladesh Women’s innings and won her the Player of the Match award.
The middle order remained unremarkable, and Ritu Moni’s unbeaten 12 runs were the only notable lower-order contribution. However, owing to the meagre nature of the target, the Bangladesh Women were able to reach 78, at the expense of 8 wickets, with 75 deliveries remaining, gaining a 1-0 lead in the 3-match series.
