Bangladesh national women's cricket team suffered an 18-run defeat to favourites India in their ICC Women's T20 World Cup tournament opener clash at the WACA Ground in Perth yesterday.

The Tigress led by Salama Khatun, who at the toss hinted to put their best foot forward against India, were ultimately fell short by 18 runs to begin their  World Cup journey with a defeat.

Put into bat, Salma delivered the first breakthrough removing Taniya Bhatia in the second over. Shafali Verma made thing easier for her side with a blistering knock of 17-ball 39 and also adding 37-run second-wicket stand with Rodrigues inside mandatory power-play.

The latter, however,  played steady innings of 34 off 37 balls but Krishnamurthy' late 11-ball 20 helped India post 142 for 6 from 20 overs.

Salma Khatun and Pane Ghosh shared two wickets apiece for Bangladesh.

In reply, Tigresses suffered early wicket of Shamima Sultana in the second over. Murshida Khatun, who tried to accelerate the innings, eventually got out on 30 while two wickets at the crucial time at 11th and 12th over made the chase more difficult for the Tigresses.

Earlier, Rachael Haynes was the hero for Australia with a classy half-century to help the hosts overcome a mighty scare against Sri Lanka in Perth. Chamari Athapaththu’s half-century set Sri Lanka on their way but two wickets apiece from Nicola Carey, who missed the India game, and Molly Strano, who came in to replace the injured Tayla Vlaeminck in the squad, held them at 122/6. In reply, Australia made 123 for five in 19.3 overs.

Australian hearts were racing when Alyssa Healy, Ashleigh Gardner and Beth Mooney all fell within four overs in their ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Group A match. But a stunning 60 from Haynes in a solid partnership with captain Meg Lanning ensured their tournament hopes stayed alive with a five-wicket victory at the WACA.
