Sneh Rana’s heroism and a good half -century from Yastika Bhatia ensured a 110 -run victory for India against Bangladesh in the ongoing Women’s World Cup at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Tuesday. Rana, who plays a useful cameo of 27, also took four for. The versatile player is pretty lively on the field as well. But, in the incident that took place in the 37th half of Bangladesh, he could have injured himself or teammate Pooja Vastrakar badly when the two collided while trying to catch.
Rana had failed to send a flying pass, and Nahida Akter tried to do a big shot. However, the batsman got ahead of him and Rana ran again to complete a good catch.
But he eventually collided with Pooja Vastrakar, who was one of three players to see the ball.
After being put in the shot, India started well with Smriti Mandhana (30) and Shafali Verma (42) adding 74 runs for the first wicket.
However, India lost three wickets in five deliveries, and once again had to rebuild their innings.
Bhatia played another knock that won the match while Richa Ghosh, Vastrakar, Rana all contributed to bring India to a total of 229 for seven.
In return, Bangladesh continued to lose wickets at regular intervals and eventually lost for as little as 119.
India, with three wins from six matches so far, occupy third place in the points chart, behind Australia and South Africa respectively.
India next face protea and a win will guarantee them a place to the semi -finals.
