India goes 4-0 up following another clinical display

India extended their lead to 4-0 in the five-match T20I series against Bangladesh with a clinical 56-run victory in a rain-affected game in Sylhet on Monday (May 6). India posted 122/6 in a match reduced to 14 overs, and Bangladesh, chasing a revised target of 125 as per DLS, could only manage 68/7.

Bangladesh handed a debut to 14-year-old Habiba Islam Pinky, but she had a limited impact, conceding 20 runs off her two overs without taking a wicket. In contrast, India gave a maiden cap to 33-year-old Asha Sobhana, who finished with figures of 2-18 from her three overs.

Dilara Akter hit a couple of boundaries in the first two overs of Bangladesh’s chase, but India tightened the screws, conceding only 21 runs in the powerplay (first four overs) and picking up the wicket of Murshida Khatun. With Akter and Rubya Haider struggling to score quickly, Bangladesh needed 89 off seven overs.

India’s pressure led to quick wickets as Deepti Sharma dismissed Akter and Sobhana removed Nigar Sultana, with Haider’s run-out adding to Bangladesh’s woes. Radha Yadav and Sobhana took more wickets, reducing Bangladesh to 47/6 in the 11th over. They could only manage 21 more runs, losing one more wicket, as India dominated once again.

In their innings, India lost Shafali Verma early but got off to a positive start thanks to Dayalan Hemalatha’s quick 22. Despite losing wickets, contributions from Smriti Mandhana, Harmanpreet Kaur, and Richa Ghosh helped India reach a challenging total.

Brief scores: India 122/6 in 14 overs (Harmanpreet Kaur 39, Richa Ghosh 24; Marufa Akter 2-24) beat Bangladesh 68/7 in 14 overs (Dilara Akter 21; Deepti Sharma 2-13, Asha Sobhana 2-18) by 56 runs (DLS method).
