India beat Bangladesh in a low scoring thriller at Mirpur, end series 2-1
Defending a small total of 95, India bowlers gave the Tigresses a very hard time, picking up the top three inside seven overs (23 for three). They were in further trouble when Minnu Mani struck for the second time to dismiss Ritu Moni. Bangladesh were reeling at 30 for four in the 8th over at that point.
Onus was on the captain Nigar to show them the way. She added 34 off 39 with Shorna Akter, Bangladesh's top-scorer in the last match.
Nigar took the game deep and at one stage, Bangladesh needed 10 off eight balls to win. In an attempt to find a boundary, Nigar stepped out against Deepti Sharma but missed the ball completely and Yastika Bhatia did not make a mistake to stump her out.
Shafali Verma bowled the last over and Bangladesh batters went for big shots, only to lose their wickets. They managed just one run off that over and lost their last four wickets.
Despite a good bowling performance in the first innings, the home side faltered terribly in the second half to bottle the match and the series. India ended the series 2-1 losing the last match, but securing the series.
