India Complete Series Clean Sweep
India Women 82-3 (Kumari 36) beat
Bangladesh Women 81-8 by seven wickets
Third Twenty20 International, Chittagong
India Women completed a 3-0 Twenty20 International series clean sweep over Bangladesh Women with a seven-wicket win in the third and final game in Chittagong.
Only two Bangladeshis reached double figures as India's bowlers restricted them to 81 for eight with Gouher Sultana and Sravanthi Naidu both taking three wickets.
Latika Kumari then top scored for India with 36 as they chased down their target in just 16.4 overs.
Bangladesh opener Ayesha Rahman made 18 in 32 balls and Salma Khatun scored 34 in 41 balls but no other player even so much as made a start for the home side.
One four apiece from the pair were all Bangladesh had to show in terms of boundaries as Sultana took three for 17 and Naidu three for 13.
Shubhlakshmi Sharma was the other player to take a wicket.
Smriti Mandhana was run out for six and then Harmanpreet Kaur, captaining the side in place of Mithali Raj, was bowled by Jahanara Alam for the same score as India reached 27 for two.
Kumari hit three fours in her 47-ball innings to take India to the brink of victory until she was caught by Shamima Sultana off the bowling of Khatun.
Shika Pandey was unbeaten on 26 and Naidu on nought as India made it three wins out of three ahead of the ICC Women's World Twenty20.
