Bangladesh Secures Convincing Win Over Pakistan in 1st T20I, Thanks to Nahida Akter’s Superb Bowling

In the first T20I match on October 25, Nahida Akter delivered a career-best bowling performance, claiming 5 wickets for just 8 runs, leading Bangladesh to a five-wicket victory over Pakistan in Chattogram. Bangladesh’s strategy of opting to bowl first and utilizing their spinners effectively paid off on a challenging pitch. Pakistan struggled to build momentum in their innings and found it particularly challenging to deal with Nahida’s consistent line. The rest of the Bangladeshi bowlers also complemented her performance, leaving Pakistan with limited scoring opportunities.

Chasing a below-par target, Bangladesh was guided by their captain, Nigar Sultana, and Murshida Khatun, both of whom made significant contributions. Nigar Sultana played a pivotal role in ensuring Bangladesh’s victory. The chase extended to the last over, primarily due to Bangladesh’s cautious approach on a difficult batting surface. Pakistan’s total of 82 runs fell well short of what could be considered a competitive score, and their batters struggled to adapt to the slow nature of the pitch.

Brief Scores:

  • Pakistan: 82 all out in 19.4 overs (Nahida Akter 5-8)
  • Bangladesh: 86/5 in 19.4 overs (Nigar Sultana 26*; Nashra Sandhu 1-16)
  • Bangladesh won by five wickets.
