Bangladesh stun Australia in Women’s U19 World Cup

Bangladesh U19 Women’s team defeated Australia for the first time in the U19 T20 Women’s World Cup in Benoni, South Africa on Saturday. Bangladesh registered a seven-wicket win against the Aussies in the tournament opener.

This is Bangladesh’s maiden win over Australia at any ICC tournament. Opting to bat first, Australia posted an underwhelming 130/5 in 20 overs. Claire Moore was the top scorer for Australia with 52 at a run-a-ball. Bangladesh cantered home with two overs to spare.
