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.
Upset! Upset! Upset
