Meanwhile, right-arm spinner Pooja Vastrakar led the bowling attack and helped restrict Bangladesh to just 51 runs. She set the tone for the innings by taking the early wickets of Shathi Rane and Shamima Sultana, who were unable to trouble the scorers.

Vastrakar got her first wicket with an in-swinging delivery to Shathi Rani (0), who had to tip the ball behind the stumps to keeper Richa Ghosh. The right-arm pacer finished with the best figures of his career with 4 wickets for just 17 runs.

Vastrakar and her new batting partner Titas Sadhu choked the life out of Bangladesh’s batting line-up, bowling a total of 18 dot balls. Spinners Deepti Sharma (0/4 from 2 overs), Rajeshwari Gayakwad (1/8 from 3.5 overs) and leg-spinner Devika Vaidya (1/0 from 1 over) also kept the pressure on the Bangladesh batting.

Bangladesh registered their lowest total against India in the T-20 format after being bowled out in 17.2 overs, with only Nigar Sultana (12) reaching double figures.

Skippers Smriti Mandhana (7) and Shefali Verma (17) lost wickets quickly during the run chase, but Jemima’s heroics helped make the chase look like an easy cakewalk for the Indian team.

India will now play the 2023 Asian Games final on Monday, with their opponents yet to be decided.
