Nahida Akter's haul of 2/27 against Australia in Mirpur Thursday, which included the wickets of Tahlia McGrath and Ashleigh Gardner, rattled the Australia middle-order and also secured her place as the leading wicket-taker for Bangladesh in Women's One Day Internationals.

The previous best for Bangladesh was Salma Khatun with 52 wickets at an average of 22.69.

Having made her debut in 2015 as a fresh-faced 15-year old, Nahida has become Bangladesh's leading bowler over the years.

She is already the highest wicket-taker in the Twenty20 international format, with her 86 wickets at 16.15 being two better than Salma's 84 scalps at 18.57. 

In the ODIs, Nahida's wickets have come at an average of 21.84, with an economy of 3.76.

Of late, she has been instrumental in setting up Bangladesh wins over India, Pakistan and South Africa.

Despite her economical spell Thursday, Australia overcame the Bangladesh challenge with ease.

The tourists secured a 118-run win in the first ODI, thus taking a 1-0 lead in the series.

This three-game ODI contest is a part of the International Cricket Council Women's Championship.
