Cricket and wonders go hand in hand and the Bangladesh vs Maldives women’s T20 clash in South Asian Games 2019 was another example of the fact. On a pitch where Bangladeshi batswomen rained fours and sixes and mustered 255 runs in the first innings, Maldives sides failed to put the bat on the ball and were bundled out for just 6 runs. Yes, you read it absolutely right. This sort of scorecard is not often seen in cricket. However, earlier this year, Mali women also got packed for six runs while playing against Rwanda.

In today's game, Bangladesh won the toss and elected to bat first. They didn’t get off to a desired start as opening pair of Sanjida Islam and Shamima Sultana were back in the hut for low scores. However, Nigar Sultana and Fargana Hoque took the mantle of run-scoring upon themselves and since then it was a one-way show. Both the strikers scored their respective centuries and guided their side to 255 in the first innings. In reply, Maldives never looked in the contest and lost wickets in a cluster. Seven of their batswomen were dismissed for ducks and as a result, they faced a thumping defeat. South Asian Games 2019 Live Streaming & Schedule in IST:
