Everyone wants a ticket for the final. But, if the script to get it is written like Team India, then what can we say? The Indian women’s cricket team has tried to do the same in Hangzhou. He bowled out Bangladesh for just 51 runs in the semi-finals of the Asian Games 2023. This is her lowest score against India in women’s cricket. All-rounder Pooja Vastrakar has a big role in the poor condition of Bangladesh in this tournament being played in T20 format.
India’s all-rounder Pooja Vastrakar, who once spoiled the start of Bangladesh’s batting, never got back on track. Following the path created by him, all the other bowlers also succeeded in taking one wicket each.

Pooja Vastrakar wreaks havoc, takes 4 wickets
Pooja Vastrakar was the most successful bowler from India, who took 4 wickets for 17 runs in 4 overs. Pooja took her first wicket on the very first ball of the match. After this he took the second wicket on the 5th ball of the match. This means that Pooja Vastrakar put Bangladesh in trouble by taking 2 wickets in the very first over.
Let us tell you that this is the same Pooja Vastrakar, who earlier did not get a place in the main squad of the Asian Games. She was a standby player. Pooja was added to the team at the last moment. And, now see that it was because of him that India succeeded in bowling out Bangladesh for just 51 runs.
Only 1 batsman touched double figures
You can guess the poor batting of Bangladesh from the fact that except captain Nigar Sultana, none of the batsmen of his team could touch double figures. Captain Nigar Sultana scored the maximum 12 runs. It was difficult for Bangladesh’s five batsmen to open their account, including both their openers. This is the reason why this team could not even play the full 20 overs. The entire Bangladesh team was all out after scoring 51 runs in 17.5 overs.
