Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bat first but they were restricted by slow left-arm orthodox bowler Anam Amin who bagged four scalps in 10 overs giving away a mere seven runs. Asmavia Iqbal took three wickets in her seven overs giving away 28 runs.

Ayasha Rahman top-scored with 39 for the visitors while Nigar Sultana remained unbeaten on 30 at the end of the Bangladesh innings.
