18:48 hrs: Gayakwad bowls another tight over. Just 5 runs from it. This is good for India as the required rate is creeping up and now the batswomen will have to look for big shots and that is when mistakes happen.

18:29 hrs: Three boundaries in the over, Murshida Khatun taking the attack to Deepti Sharma. She is going hell for leather and has helped Bangladesh hit back after a rather sedate start.
