Bangladesh 95 for 4 (Fargana 48, Romanian 34, Mir 2-20) beat Pakistan 94 (Javeria 29, Khadija 6-20, Romanian 2-15) for six windows

The best ODI figures of Khadija Tul Kubra – 6 by 20 – overthrew Pakistan and laid the groundwork for a victory of Bangladesh in six sales in the only ODI in Bax de Cox. The visitors were grouped for 94, their second lowest score against Bangladesh, which proved inadequate despite two early windows, as a 81-run third-hole run between Fargana Hoque and captain Romanian Ahmed sealed the fate of the match.

Fargana was the dominant partner, scoring 48 of 81 balls, and Romanian made 34, to go with her two windows. When the duo finally departed in quick succession, Bangladesh only required eight more runs, which were rejected by Lata Mondal and Fahima Khatun. The hosts won with 21 passes to spare.

It was a comeback for the home team, who had lost the T20I 3-0 series only two days ago. Monday's victory was only the eighth in ODI and the first since they beat Ireland in February 2017.

Khadija became the first bowler in Bangladesh, and 14th overall, to get six or more ODI windows for women. Jadija, who became the bowler of the third change, eliminated Ayesha Zafar on the 15th before being held accountable by Nida Dar, Umaima Sohail, captain Javeria Khan, who scored for Pakistan with 29 – Sidra Nawaz and Nashra Sandhu.
