Bangladesh beat India to lift maiden Women's Asia Cup T20 title

Bangladesh's chase got off to a steady start, but soon ran into trouble as openers Shamima Sultana and Ayasha Rahman were dismissed in successive deliveries. However, Patil was seen hassling her way up front before Kaur signaled her to get back.

Harmanpreet Kaur top-scored with 56 against Bangladesh in the Women's Asia Cup final. Batting first, India openers Mithali Raj and Smriti Madhana got off to cautious start on the slow track at the Kinrara Oval.

Veda Krishnamurthy and Harmanpreet Kaur tried to steady the ship from there on and took India's score past the 50-run mark.

Nigar Sultana came in and her masterful 24-ball 27 steadied the Bangladesh chase, as Harmanpreet kept looking around for bowlers.

Bangladesh women chose to bowl first after winning the toss.

But the fact that the match continued till the last ball is testament of the effort that the bowlers put after the batters contributed with just 112 runs when put in to bat first.

In battle of tweets, Canada's Trudeau dismisses Trump critique
A key question was whether the seven countries could agree on a joint statement of priorities at the conclusion of the meeting. Donald Trump announced on Twitter that he was pulling the United States endorsement of G7 summit's final statement.

Left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht starred with the ball as she picked up three wickets while Anuja Patil, Poonam Yadav, Deepti Sharma, and Shikha Pandey struck once each. Rumana was stopped from reaching for her second run in the penultimate delivery, meaning Bangladesh needed two runs from the last ball.

Bangladesh, though, were still well in the contest and there were important contributions from nearly all of their middle-order batters - Fargana Hoque, Rumana Ahmed and Nigar Sultana.

Rumana and Nigar joined hands at 55/3 before the duo took Bangladesh near the target. It took a fifth-wicket partnership of 30 runs between Harmanpreet and Veda Krishnamurthy (11) to fix some of the damage. India women had won the previous six editions of the Asia Cup.

The runners-up of 2017 Women's World Cup are heading into the final on the back of a comfortable seven-wicket win over Pakistan.

Needing 2 off 1, Jahanara Alam pulled to deep mid-wicket and ran two with captain Salma Khatun at the other end.

Both India and Bangladesh finished their round robin league campaign with eight points each from five matches but the former edged ahead courtesy superior net run rate.
