Bangladesh made it two wins from two as they continued their quest for a place in the women’s Twenty20 cricket competition at this year’s Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

After getting the final Birmingham 2022 qualifier off to a flier with an eight-wicket thrashing of hosts Malaysia yesterday, Bangladesh defeated Kenya by 80 runs in Kuala Lumpur today.

Ritu Moni and Salma Khatun top scored for Bangladesh with 39 and 33 runs respectively as they posted a score of 125-6.

Nahida Akter then produced a devastating performance with the ball, taking 5-12 as Kenya were skittled for 45 in 12.4 overs.

Malaysia crashed to their second straight defeat as Scotland bounced back from yesterday’s loss to Sri Lanka to beat the hosts by 31 runs.

A half-century from captain Kathryn Bryce proved to be the difference in the encounter.

Bryce finished unbeaten on 62, while Abbi Aitken-Drummond scored 43 as Scotland closed on a score of 148-5.

Malaysia tried to respond with Jamahidaya Intan and Winifred Duraisingham notching 24 and 22 respectively, but they failed to reach Scotland’s total.

Katherine Fraser was Scotland’s star bowler as she finished with figures of 4-19, while Abtaha Maqsood bagged a brace of wickets.

Competition continues tomorrow with Kenya and Sri Lanka set to go head-to-head.
