The Big Picture
After clinching their maiden Women’s Asia Cup title, Bangladesh Women will continue their sojourn of the Irish isles, where they’ll meet Ireland Women in the second T20 of the ‘Best of three’ series on Friday, June 29th.
In the first T20, Ireland Women batted first and on the back of some steady contributions from their middle-order, spearheaded by Isobel Joyce’s run-a-ball 41, posted a competitive, 8-134 in 20 overs. This happened after both of their openers in Clare Shillington (4) and Cecelia Joyce (1) ran into a rampaging Jahanara Alam, who finished with her career-best figures of 5-28 in 20 overs.
Chasing 135, BD-W lost Shamima Sultana for 4 (7), but Ayasha Rahman (24), and Nigar Sultana’s 38-ball-46 steadied their fledgling ship before Fahima Khatun last assault (18-ball-28) paved the way for a final over win for the visitors. Can BD-W make in two-in-two and close out the series on Friday itself? Let us delve into betting odds as part of our IR-W vs VD-W today match prediction.
