five balls in the fifth and sixth over. Then, Yastika Bhatia fell at the ninth spot, putting India in a difficult position.

Bangladesh, just as the host team did to them. It appeared that Bangladesh was faltering in pursuit of the target, but captain Nigar Sultana brought the target back on track. In the end, Sultana got out for 38 runs. Shafali took three wickets in the final over, giving away just one run, while another wicket fell due to a run-out, resulting in India winning by eight runs.
