Spin duo of Shreyanka Patil and Mannat Kashyap starred with the ball after a sedate batting effort, to guide the India U-23 team to the Women’s Emerging Asia Cup T20 title with a 31-run win over Bangladesh in the final here on Wednesday.
Electing to bat, India first posted a modest 127 for seven before the bowlers rose to the occasion with Patil (4-13) and Kashyap (3-20) sharing seven wickets between them to bundle out Bangladesh for 96 in 19.2 overs.
Off-break bowler Kanika Ahuja (2-23) chipped in with two wickets. It was a complete spin show from the Indians with off-spinner Patil and slow left-arm orthodox Kashyap ruling the roost on a slow Mission Road Ground pitch. Sobhana Mostary and Nahida Akter scored 16 runs each, while Nahida Akter remained stranded on 17 not out for Bangladesh.
Earlier, Dinesh Vrinda (36 off 29) was the top-scorer for India while Kanika Ahuja remained unbeaten on 30 off 23 balls.
