Pacer Jahanara Islam and spinner Salma Khatun picked up two wickets each.

Chasing the easy target, openers Murshida Khatun and Shamima Sultana put on 58 for the opening stand before Sanjida Meghla broke the pair.

Meghla removed Murshida for 24 but that did not damage much to the Blue’s sail towards the target.

Shamima remained unbeaten on 30 while Fargana Hoque was not out on 21 to complete the chase.

Green team will face Bangladesh Red side tomorrow at the same venue to decide the second finalist of the event. 

Both Green and Red team have played a game each in the event, and are winless.
