Radha Yadav, batters lead India to 5-0 T20I series sweep over Bangladesh

Update : 09 May 2024, 19:52

India extended their dominance over Bangladesh to complete a 5-0 T20I series sweep with a 21-run win in the fifth and final game in Sylhet on Thursday. India posted 156 for 5 after opting to bat, thanks to strong hands from D Hemalatha, Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana and a late cameo from Richa Ghosh.

Though Ritu Moni and Shorifa Khatun fought back in the second half of the chase after Radha Yadav's three-wicket burst, it wasn't enough for a consolation win for Bangladesh.

Radha, on her comeback for India after being off the national radar for a year, ended the series as the most successful bowler with ten wickets, which got her the Player-of-the-Series award to go with the Player-of-the-Match award for her three-wicket haul on Thursday.

Coming off a 2-1 T20I series defeat at home against Australia, India will be happy to have produced a convincing series victory in Bangladesh, where the T20 World Cup will be held in October. Bangladesh, though, have now lost eight T20Is in a row now, five here and three earlier against Australia, all at home. Source: ESPN
