Sport Reporter: Captain Nigar Sultana Joty led from the front as Bangladesh Women’s team pulled off a victory against Sri Lanka after nine year when they beat the hosts by six wickets in three-match T20 International series opener today at Singhalese Cricket Stadium (SSC). Joty hammered 51 ball-75 not out with seven fours and two sixes as Bangladesh raced to the victory with 146-4, overhauling Sri Lanka’s 145-6 in the penultimate delivery. With Bangladesh needing eight runs in the last over, Ritu Moni was trapped run out for 23 ball-33 in the fourth ball of the innings, when the score was level. Joty however dashed Sri Lanka’s hope to take the match to the super over, taking a single in the fifth ball that ensured Bangladesh’s victory. Sri Lanka earlier won the three-match ODI series by 1-0 after first two matches were washed out due to rain.
