Result : Pakistan Women won by 7 wickets.

Bangladesh Women lost the 4-match T20I series against Pakistan Women as the visiting team sealed the third match of the series by 7 wickets to take a 2-0 lead. First match of the series was abandoned due to wet outfield.

Batting first, Bangladesh Women managed to post 81 for 8 in 20 overs. Nigar Sultana was the top scorer with 19. Bangladesh bowlers struggle while defending the low total as Nahida’s 33 and Javeira’s unbeaten 31 power them to a 7-wicket victory with 9 balls in hand.

Fourth match of the series will be held on October 6 (Saturday) at the same venue.
