The left-hander from Bangladesh scooped the Player of the Match award in her last match against USA. She batted an unbeaten 77 of 64, including nine limits, and registered her highest T20I score. In the process, she sewed a 138-run partnership with captain Nigar Sultana for the second wicket.
The veteran right arm off-spinner from Bangladesh was one of the two wicket takers in her last appearance against the USA. She maintained 12/1 in three overs and scored on the very last ball of her first over. She opened the bowling alley and bowled well with the new ball. The sly spinner was the most economical bowler for Bangladesh.
