- Updated: November 15, 2023
In a highly anticipated clash, Bangladesh Women are set to take on Pakistan Women in the third and final game of their thrilling three-match ODI series on November 10 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur. The series, characterized by nail-biting encounters, has kept cricket enthusiasts on the edge of their seats.
The opening match saw Pakistan securing a five-wicket victory, taking a 1-0 lead in the series. After limiting Bangladesh to a mere 81 runs in 31.5 overs, Pakistan successfully chased the target in 24.5 overs. The Tigresses, determined to bounce back, managed a crucial win in the second match, forcing it into a Super Over. Nigar Sultana Joty played a pivotal role, earning the Player of the Match award for her impressive 54 off 104.
In the second encounter, Bangladesh batted first but could only post 169/9. The bowling prowess of Sadia Iqbal and left-arm spinner Nashra Sandhu, each claiming two wickets, troubled the Tigresses. However, Pakistan faced an equally challenging task as they bowled out Bangladesh for the same score in 49.5 overs. The game intensified into a Super Over, where Bangladesh emerged victorious, chasing down a target of eight off the last ball.
The upcoming third ODI promises to be a battle of nerves, with both teams eager to secure a series win.

The Tigresses will draw confidence from their resilience and strategic gameplay. With key players like Shamima Sultana, Nigar Sultana, and Ritu Moni, Bangladesh aims to clinch the series with another commanding performance.
