But the later batsmen all made useful contributions and the Papua New Guinea’s bowlers helped with fourteen extras. Sharmin Akhter and Fargana Haque both played fifty plus innings.
In reply to Bangladeshi total, Papua New Guinea went through a dramatic collapse after a decent start and got all out by 97 from 59/4. All Bangladeshi bowlers were destructive equally to restrict PNG women below 100.
