Scorer: Ranjith P

That's it for now. A rare day with two non-close games have been played. Maybe even the tournament needs a break after having provided cliffhangers almost on demand and by default. So the scheduled day-off comes at a good time, live action will return from day after tomorrow. A few comments will be posted below. On behalf of my fellow commentator, Hemant Brar, and our scorer, Ranjith P, this is Ekanth signing off. Take care.

CJenR: "How do they pick Player of the match? Though Yastika's 50 led us to the score of above 200. Sneh Rana's cameo in the end with bat 27(23) " I'm assuming because Yastika played through after the loss of three back-to-back wickets. But Sneh was a great candidate and would have been my pick as well.

Sunit: "High probability 4 teams ending up 8 points each"

Ram: "India need only one favourable result of WI losing to SA. nrr between India and NZ is too big for NZ finish above India " And beating South Africa in their next game. Not sure what the permutations are but today's win helps.

Mukunth: "Guess the equation is a bit simple now. If SA defeat WI and India, India will still qualify unless they lose by about 100 runs or so. If WI beats SA, the equation gets a bit complex."

Waseem Raja: "its been more than 15 yrs may be 20 that I am following cricinfo but they never published my comments and even Mr. Steve Lynch never bother to answer my valid questions. I dont know why cricinfo did this to me." Must be bad luck.

Lucky: "Is Gayakwad's bowling figures the most economical 10 overs ever?" No

Waseem Raja: "Extremely disappointing performance from Bangladeshi Women" They tried well but, as Mithali said, collapses happen sometimes. Besides, they showed great spirit with attempts to go for the win by trying out big shots. Also, their bowling was good for the majority of the first innings.

Nigar Sultana, Bangladesh Captain: It is difficult (to comeback) when you lose early wickets, we need to work on that. We bowled well and restricted them to a good total which was fantastic. (On keeping) It was because Shamima wasn't playing, it made captaining easier. (On learnings) Controlling the nerves in pressure situations and controlling the game. We were unable to build partnerships in this game and the last, so I think that's costed a lot. (On the positives) The bowlers have been very good today, especially Salma Khatun and Ritu Moni.

Mithali Raj, India Captain: Happy with the win. (On the collapse early in the batting innings) It does happen sometimes. I remember the last time I was inconsistent was in 2012. So, it does happen. But we had a good opening partnership. On a wicket like this, it's hard for an incoming batter to get runs. The anchoring innings by Yastika was important. The partnership from Sneh Rana and Pooja was crucial to get to 230. It's a good effort from the batting line-up to get there despite the loss of wickets. electors have also been on the same page in bringing more all-rounders. For a long time, we've always banked on our spinners and we have quality spinners. Today's surface did help them a lot too. Wouldn't say we are spin-dominant, it also depends on the opposition we're playing. We haven't played a game in Christchurch yet, so that's a challenge. It's an important game for India and we would want to do well in all departments.

Yastika Bhatia is the player of the match for her 50 (80): Very pleased with the performance although I would have liked to contribute with a few more runs. Nevertheless, very happy with the result. In domestic cricket, I prepared to play at No. 3. But in my mind, I was clear that my focus was to contribute for the team. So the preparation and net sessions were focussed on that (objective). Sometimes, wickets are not good and wickets can fall, so strike rotation is in my mind. (On her diet) I have changed my diet but I eat everything during the game as carbs are needed. Means a lot to win the award as it's my first one

8:36 pm: A clinical performance from India with the ball earns them a much needed big win. Starting with spin on one end proved effective as prodigious spin was found. The wickets fell in clusters and Bangladesh could not get back. Murshida Khatun tried to stay in but wickets in the other end tied her up as well. Rearguard action from Lata Mandal and Salma Khatun delayed the inevitable as Sneh Rana and co cleared up the innings.
