Bangladesh women’s cricket team faced their first defeat in the ongoing ICC Women's Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2021-22.

The side lost to Thailand women’s cricket team by 16 runs [Duckworth/Lewis method] after the game got interrupted due to bad light in Harare Thursday.

Bangladesh lost their first game in three matches and are now sharing top stop in Group B with Thailand with two wins apiece.

The top three teams from the two groups, Group A and B, will move to the Super Six round of the competition.

Batting first, Bangladesh had a tough day in the middle putting up 176 runs on the board losing eight wickets in 50 overs.

The innings involved 56 runs from in-form batter Fargana Hoque and 46 from opener Murshida Khatun. 

However, the Thai bowling attack initiated regular breakthroughs after getting early wickets in the game and kept Bangladesh batting unit under control – only four Bangladesh batters could score in double figure in the innings.

Thai right-arm spinner Nattaya Boochatham ripped through the Bangladesh batting line-up with her career best five for 26 in the format.

Defending the total, Bangladesh bowlers were denied of early strike as openers Sornnarin Tippoch and Natthakan Chantham got Thailand 97 for the first wicket.

Bangladesh broke the partnership with left-arm spinner Nahida Akter dismissing Tippoch on 69 off 117 balls laced with seven boundaries.

Five overs later Fahima Khatun removed the second Thai wicket in Chantham for 37.

This had slowed the Thai chase only to soon be favored by the weather.

Bad light interrupted the game in the 40th over with Thailand on 132 for two and needing another 44 runs in 10.4 overs.

Following the call-off time, the match officials declared Thailand the winner of the game having eight wickets in hand.

Bangladesh in their fourth game of the tournament will face hosts Zimbabwe at the same venue Monday.
