Bangladesh stun India by 7 wickets

Kuala Lumpur, June 6: India suffered their first ever defeat at the hands of Bangladesh in any format as the six-time champions were hammered by seven wickets in the Women’s Asia Cup cricket tournament at the Kinrara Academy Oval here on Wednesday.

This was also the first loss of the women-in-blue in the tournament since 2012.

Fargana Hoque and Rumana Ahmed’s unbeaten 52 and 42-run knocks helped Bangladesh chase a below par target of 142 with seven balls to spare.
Bangladesh had earlier beaten Pakistan in the tourney.

Despite the loss, India were static atop the points table with two wins from three games while Bangladesh is placed fourth.

The Harmanpreet-led side will next face Sri Lanka on Thursday. (IANS)
