Fifties from Nida Dar and Aliya Riaz rescued Pakistan from a precarious 49 for 5, but their total of 201 proved just short of defendable
Bangladesh 202 for 7 (Rumana 50*, Hoque 45, Sandhu 2-24, Sohail 2-44) beat Pakistan 201 for 7 (Dar 87, Riaz 61*, Akter 2-25, Moni 2-36) by three wickets
Omaima Sohail struck twice in the 46th over, leaving Bangladesh needing 41 off the last 24 balls. Then Rumana took control, carting three consecutive fours off Sohail in the 48th. With former captain Salma Khatun also chipping in with an unbeaten 18 off 13, Bangladesh got home with two balls to spare.
