Bangladesh register third win while Malaysia win their first in the ICC Women’s Commonwealth Games Qualifier 2022.
Here's a round-up of all the action on the day five of the Qualifier.
Bangladesh vs Scotland
A half-century from Murshida Khatun and a partnership of 78 between her and Fargana Hoque laid the foundation for Bangladesh’s win over Scotland on Sunday in the ICC Women’s Commonwealth Games Qualifier 2022.
The stage for a fairly easy run chase was set by the bowlers, though, with Scotland bowled out for 77 in 17.3 overs. Though Scotland got off to a decent start, Nahida Akter picked up the crucial scalp of Katie McGill for 22 to spark a collapse that saw Scotland lose eight wickets for 27 runs.
Kathryn Bryce started Scotland’s defence on a terrific note, dismissing Bangladesh skipper Shamima Sultana for a golden duck, but it remained the only wicket Scotland could muster as Murshida and Fargana took them home with nine wickets to spare.
Bangladesh beat Scotland by nine wickets. Bangladesh 78/1 in 15.2 Overs; Scotland 77 All Out in 17.3 Overs.
Player of the Match: Murshida Khatun
Malaysia vs Kenya
An all-round show from Mas Elysa paved the way for Malaysia’s first win in the ICC Women’s Commonwealth Games Qualifier 2022.
Having opted to bat first, Kenya lost opener Queentor Abel for a duck in the first over to Winifred Duraisingam, the Malaysian captain. Kenya couldn’t quite get going and ambled along to 24/2 in 8 overs when Mas Elysa was introduced into the attack.
She grabbed two for 19 as Kenya struggled to gain any momentum and finished on 87/6 in their 20 overs.
In reply, Queentor Abel found her revenge when she sent back her opposite number Winifred Duraisigam for a duck in the first over. Wan Julia was gone next over as Kenya started off well, but Mas Elysa’s composed 26-ball 37 and some handy aid from the middle-order ensured Malaysia reached the target with 10 balls and five wickets to spare.
Malaysia beat Kenya by five wickets. Malaysia 89/5 in 18.2 Overs; Kenya 88/6 in 20 Overs.
Player of the Match: Mas Elysa
