Opener Theertha Satish led the way as the UAE notched their maiden win in the Women’s Asia Cup in Bangladesh on Wednesday.
Satish scored an unbeaten 62 from 60 balls with the help of 8 boundaries as the UAE won by 7 wickets at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium, Academy Ground. With its maiden win in the tournament, the team opened its account in the points table and climbed to the fifth position.
The Malaysian team, opting to bat first, did not repay the faith of the captain as the team managed to reach a paltry total of 88/4 in their allotted quota overs. The opening partnership was of 40 runs but was broken in the 8th over as Wan Julia was dismissed for Esha Rohit Oza for 8 runs. Mas Elysa was the second wicket as she was dismissed for 14.
Malaysia’s captain managed to top-score for the team with slow-paced inning of 33 from 53 balls. The batter got out in the 17th over becoming the first wicket of Vaishnave Mahesh and the third wicket for UAE. Elsa Hunter was the fourth wicket as she was dismissed by Chaya Mughal in the 19th over for eight runs.
UAE WOMEN 91/3 in 19. Overs (Theertha Satish 62; Sasha Azmi 1/7) beat MALAYSIA WOMEN 88/4 in 20 overs (Winifred Duraisingam 33; Esha Rohit Oza 1/14) by 7 wickets.
