Shreyanka Patil and Mannat Kashyap excelled with the ball after a quiet batting performance to lead India U-23 to the Women’s Emerging Asia Cup T20 championship with a 31-run triumph against Bangladesh in the final on Wednesday.

The India U-23 squad won the Women’s Emerging Asia Cup T20 championship with a 31-run victory against Bangladesh in the final on Wednesday thanks to the bowling of the spin combo of Shreyanka Patil and Mannat Kashyap after a subdued batting performance.

Having chosen to bat, India made a modest 127 for 7 at first before the bowlers stepped up, with Patil (4/13) and Kashyap (3/20) sharing seven wickets to dismiss Bangladesh for 96 in 19.2 overs.

Kanika Ahuja, an off-break bowler, added two more wickets (2/23) to her total.

On a sluggish Mission Road Ground surface, the Indians put on a comprehensive spin display, with off-spinner Patil and slow left-arm orthodox Kashyap dominating the roost.

For Bangladesh, Nahida Akter was left stranded on 17 not out while Sobhana Mostary and Nahida Akter both scored 16 runs.

Earlier, Kanika Ahuja finished undefeated on 30 off 23 balls, while Dinesh Vrinda led India with 36 off 29.

It was difficult for Indian hitters, as just four of them reached double digits, while Bangladeshi spinners often took out wickets, preventing India from forming any meaningful partnerships.

The other two Indian batters to attain double digit runs, in addition to Vrinda and Ahuja, were wicketkeeper U Chetry (22) and captain Shweta Sehrawat (13).

Nahida Akter (2/13) and Sultana Khatun (2/30), both slow left-arm orthodox bowlers for Bangladesh, both took two wickets.

India advanced to the final after their semifinal match against Sri Lanka was called off on Tuesday without a bowl being taken.

India played just one game leading up to the final, their opener against the hosts Hong Kong, which they won by nine wickets, in an odd turn of events.

None of the balls were bowled in India’s other three matches, including the semifinal versus Sri Lanka.

The event was really ruined by rain, which resulted in up to eight games being called off.
