Indian women produced a clinical bowling performance to comprehensively defeat Bangladesh by eight wickets in the second T20 International and take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series here on Tuesday.
Medium-pacer Jhulan Goswami (two for 15) and leg-spinner Poonam Yadav (two for 9) rattled the Bangladesh top and middle order as the home side could only muster 65 for nine in 20 overs after electing to bat at the newly built Sheikh Kamal International Cricket Stadium.
Shikha Pandey also chipped in with one scalp. Bangladesh was not helped by its poor running, as run-outs accounted for four dismissals.
Three batters went for ducks, while only four players managed to reach double digits.
The Indians chased down the target in just 12.3 overs while losing two wickets. Shikha (16) and Madhuri Mehta (23) put on 45 for the first wicket.
The pair fell in quick succession, but Jhulan (18 not out) and Harmanpreet Kaur took the visitors home as they reached 66 for two with 45 balls to spare.
The scores: Bangladesh 65 for nine in 20 overs (Poonam Yadav two for nine, Jhulan Goswami two for 15) lost to India 66 for two in 12.3 overs (Madhuri Mehta 23).
