However an interesting break was the performance of Bangladesh Women cricket team in the ACC women's tournament. Cricinfo reports:
Bangladesh vs UAE, one of two matches on day 1 of the ACC women's tournament, lasted all of one hour, with perhaps more time spent in change-overs than playing cricket. Bangladesh's opening bowlers Panna Ghosh and Shamina Akter knocked over the UAE batsmen in 9 overs, and then Tajkia Akhter, the captain, and Chamely Khatun reached the target in 1.2 overs.Anyone calling for another number game?
Seven ducks were registered in the UAE innings, with three batsmen making 1 and the highest innings score being 3. UAE struggled against the bowling from both ends, Ghosh ending with figures of 5 for 6 from 5 overs while Akhter, her stockier but equally quick teammate, took 3 for 2 in her 4 overs.
