What an over from Poonam Yadav. She takes two wickets in consecutive deliveries and both the Bangladesh openers are back in the dug out.— BCCI Women (@BCCIWomen) June 10, 2018
After 7 overs, BAN 35/2 and need 78 from 78 balls.#INDvBAN #AsiaCupfinal
10 runs from the first four balls bowled by Shikha and she seems to be in some pain at the moment. Physio is out there in the middle and Shikha walks off the field for some medical attention. Deepti to bowl the remaining two balls. #INDvBAN #AsiaCupfinal— BCCI Women (@BCCIWomen) June 10, 2018
