HIGHLIGHTS

  • 19:54 (IST)

    Harmanpreet Kaur: The way Shefali and Jemimah played, it showed their capability and it's a good sign for us. Veda did a great job for us, we needed a few boundaries at that time. We are looking each game at a time and looking forward to doing well in the future. Smriti will hopefully be better and available for the next match.

  • 19:53 (IST)

    Khatun: We didn't bowl well in the Power Play, and we didn't field well. That's why we didn't play well. We have to improve in the Power Play.

  • 19:48 (IST)

    Shafali Verma, Player of the Match: I had it in my mind that since Smriti was not around, I wanted to bat long. I have been practising being aggressive and want to continue doing that. I want to win matches for India and win the World Cup.

  • 19:43 (IST)

    END OF MATCH. India win by 18 runs, taking their second victory in the tournament. Two from two, they look like the team in form this tournament. A good effort by their batters backed by their bowlers.

  • 19:38 (IST)

    22 from 6. Almost game, set and match for India.

  • 19:35 (IST)

    Poonam Raut finishes with 3 for 18. Another superb spell. Bangladesh have got two boundaries in the first two balls off Gayakwad. 25 from 10 now.

  • 19:31 (IST)

    WICKET! Poonam gets her second. Absolutely no pace, Jahanara is tempted to come down the track for a slog, and is stumped. Terrific bowling this. Bangladesh 108 for 7.

  • 19:27 (IST)

    Another WICKET! Gayakwad gets Sultana, who sweeps straight to square leg. Sharp catch from Reddy there, Bangladesh 106 for 6.

  • 19:22 (IST)

    WICKET! Poonam provides the breakthrough. The lack of pace doing the trick again. Khatun looks to sweep and miscues to square leg. Bangladesh 94 for 5.

  • 19:20 (IST)

    Bangladesh 94 for 4, need 49 from the last 5. This is getting closer and closer. India need to break this stand.

  • 19:17 (IST)

    A couple of boundaries for Fatima Khatun in that over from Reddy, along with a drop catch from Jemimah. Bangladesh hanging in there, need 58 from 36.

  • 19:07 (IST)

    WICKET! Reddy gets Fargana. She's caught behind, looking to defend one that bounced a bit more than usual. A faint edge adn well held by Bhatia standing up to the stumps.

  • 19:02 (IST)

    WICKET! Poonam Yadav strikes. Islam is gone. She looks to sweep but gets a slight under edge to the keeper. A very faint edge, which India spot using the DRS. Bangladesh 61 for 3.

  • 18:59 (IST)

    Much needed runs for Bangladesh in the form of two boundaries in that over from Reddy. 60 for 2 after 10. They need some more of that.

  • 18:51 (IST)

    WICKET! Khatun looks to up the ante and falls in the process. Arundhati Reddy strikes in her first over. Slow and full outside off, she slogs and miscues it to cover. Bangladesh 44/2 in 8 overs.

  • 18:42 (IST)

    End of Power Play, Bangladesh are 33 for 1. Need some quick runs, India in search of wickets.

  • 18:38 (IST)

    10 runs from the last two overs, bowled by Pandey and Gayakwad. Bangladesh steadying their ship, India need to break the stand.

  • 18:31 (IST)

    Three boundaries and a drop catch in that action packed over from Deepti. Murshida Khatun is counter-attacking, was nearly dismissed but Shafali couldn't hold on to a tough catch.

  • 18:26 (IST)

    WICKET! Shikha Pandey gets Sultana. Slow ball outside off, Sultana looks to go over the off side but can hit it only as far as extra cover. Bangladesh 5/1.

  • 18:04 (IST)

    Jahanara Alam bowls the final over and starts it with a dot. Veda swings hard at the second ball but only gets one leg-byes. There was an LBW shout and Bangladesh review but impact is outside the line of off stump and Veda survives. Shikha then goes for a big shot and finds the fielder at sweeper cover who pits down a simple catch; two runs taken. Shikha's attempt at an improvised paddle sweep yields a dot and she survives a run-out call too; the 'keeper did well to hit the stumps. She gets a single off the next ball, with her lofted shot taking a bounce before going to long-off. Single off the final ball ensures India finish at 142-6. 

  • 17:59 (IST)

    FOUR! Veda manages another boundary in the penultimate over and India get 9 runs off it. They are closing in on that 150-run mark. Can they get that in the final over?

  • 17:54 (IST)

    THREE FOURS! There remains some fight in India just yet. Veda goes for a sweep and gets a boundary backward of square. She then goes for an inside-out shot over covers and manages to dissect the fielders in the deep. Ends the over with another sweep towards deep square leg. 

  • 17:49 (IST)

    OUT! Another mix-up while running, another run-out. This is a disaster. Both Deepti and Veda Krishnamurthy get to the non-striker's end at the same time but it is the latter who makes her ground first. India are crumbling. 

  • 17:43 (IST)

    OUT! The pressure gets to India. Richa Ghosh goes for a big shot in the first ball of the 17th over but only finds the fielder at long-on. Exactly what India didn't need at this stage. They are now 5 down. 

20:01 (IST)

That's it from us, thanks for joining.

19:54 (IST)

Sedate start for Bangladesh, just three from the first over.

18:19 (IST)

All set for the chase. India start with the spin of Deepti Sharma once again.

18:04 (IST)

Jahanara Alam bowls the final over and starts it with a dot. Veda swings hard at the second ball but only gets one leg-byes.

17:42 (IST)

Another good over from Nahida and India will need to do quite the job in the remaining four overs. Only 4 came off the 16th over and one gets the feeling that India are getting a bit frustrated. 

17:37 (IST)

Can Bangladesh continue to apply the squeeze?

Live Score, India vs Bangladesh, ICC Women’s T20 World Cup: India Beat Bangladesh for Second Win

Latest update:

END OF MATCH. India win by 18 runs, taking their second victory in the tournament. Two from two, they look like the team in form this tournament. A good effort by their batters backed by their bowlers.

Preview: The Indian women's cricket team will look to continue their winning momentum when they take on Bangladesh in an ICC Women's T20 World Cup clash at Perth on Monday.

On Friday, India successfully defended 132 against four-time champions Australia at the Sydney Showground Stadium and began their World Cup campaign with a hard-fought win.

Deepti Sharma contributed with a valuable knock of 49* and Poonam Yadav turned the match in India's favour by picking up four wickets.

On Monday, a furious WACA pitch will welcome both teams. Bangladesh have beaten India on a number of occasions in this format, with the most notable being in the final of the Asia Cup in 2018 where they won by three wickets.

The good news is about the top performers in batting and bowling department from that fateful tour. Match winner Poonam Yadav will still have the memories of 2018's Asian Cup afresh where she stifled Bangladesh batters with astounding bowling figures of 4/9.

Smriti Mandhana will be waiting to avenge her 2016 T20 World Cup outing when leg spinner Fahima Khatun's sent her back to the pavilion for a duck.

Skipper Harmanpreet Kaur is the shining star against the new entrants, with scores of 40 and 77 in 2014 and 2016 edition of World Cup, bagging player of the match in both outings.

There remain concerns for India in the batting department, largely due to the middle order with Veda Krishnamurthy still yet to get into the groove. Their batting at the death will also have to improve.

Bangladesh look fairly balanced in bowling and fielding and are coached by former Indian wicketkeeper batter Anju Jain. The Arjuna Awardee and former opener played 65 ODIs and 8 Tests and has been at the helm from 2018.

Bangladesh's highest fast bowling wicket-taker is Jahanara Alam, who possesses both pace and control. The WACA pitch historically known for good pace bowling and Alam's pace and swing should be an ideal fit.

Squads

India: Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harleen Deol, Veda Krishnamurthy, Taniya Bhatia (wk), Deepti Sharma, Shikha Pandey, Pooja Vastrakar, Poonam Yadav, Radha Yadav, Arundhati Reddy, Rajeshwari Gaekwad, Richa Ghosh.

Bangladesh: Salma Khatun (c), Rumana Ahmed (vc), Jahanara Alam, Shamima Sultana, Murshida Khatun, Ayesha Rahman, Nigar Sultana, Sanjida Islam, Khadija-Tul-Kubra, Panna Ghosh, Fargana Haque, Nahida Akhter, Fahima Khatun, Ritu Moni, Sobhana Mostary.
