Bangladesh’s best year in cricket will be 2023. Shakib Al Hasan said this at the beginning of the year. Who knew it would be so true? Boys’ cricket has given one failure after another, but the girls are giving great gifts. Bangladesh defeated South Africa by 119 runs on Victory Day yesterday.

After the first one-day victory on the soil of South Africa, this special victory was dedicated to the brave freedom fighters and martyrs of the liberation war by the captain of Niger, Sultana Jyoti.

Bangladesh went into bat after losing the toss yesterday. At the end of the match, Shapebor accepted the loss of the toss, the captain said, ‘In the end it was good to lose the toss. If I won the toss, I would have decided to field first.’

Bangladesh made this record of their highest collection in ODI based on Murshida Khatun’s unbeaten innings of 91 runs. This innings of Murshidar also made a place in the record pages. This is the highest personal record of any Bangladeshi woman on foreign soil! This is the best innings by any batsman for three. And second highest overall.

The first ODI win against India and Bangladesh’s first ODI win came last July. Niggers have tied the T20 series against India. Also a series win against Pakistan during the men’s World Cup.

It was doubtful whether such a rhythm could be maintained on South African soil. But by winning the first T20 of the series, the girls of Bangladesh have made it clear that they will make this year to be remembered. Tomorrow’s first ODI should be remembered in various records.

Farzana Haque gave Bangladesh women’s cricket their first taste of ODI century against India. Another fellow almost got it yesterday. In the end, he had to remain unbeaten on 91 runs as he did not get regular strikes.

However, Farzana and Shamima Sultana started it. The opening pair of the two brought 66 runs. Shamima (34) went back but Farzana made a partnership of 44 runs with Murshida. Despite scoring only 35 runs off 76 balls, with Farzana staying on one side, Bangladesh are sure to get off to a good start.

When Farzana returned, Murshida made two more pairs. Nigar (38) and Swarna Akter (27*) made two more pairs of 80 and 60 runs. Murshida scored 91 runs off 100 balls with 12 fours. This is Bangladesh’s highest score in the opponent’s field. Second highest overall. 48 of her 91 runs came from boundaries, the highest number of runs from boundaries by a Bangladeshi woman batsman in a single match.

South Africa could not stand to chase runs. Laura Volvert, the captain of the team returned for 9 runs, her partner departed before any runs were added. 3rd wicket falls for 50 runs, 13th over game underway. Proteas need 105 balls in the next fifty overs. By that time the hosts have 5 more wickets. Debutant Elise-Marie Marks’ 35 took the Proteas to 131.

Nigar dedicated this night victory to the brave freedom fighters and martyrs of the liberation war, ‘Today (tomorrow was) our victory day. So I want to dedicate this victory to the martyrs and brave freedom fighters in the great liberation war.’

The second match of the series will be on December 20.

Summary Score:

Bangladesh Women’s Team: 250/3 in 50 overs (Mursida 91*, Nigar 38, Farzana 35; Mlaba 1/37, Tucker 1/43, Marks 1/43)
