After a brief spark in the third match of the series on Thursday, it was business as usual in Mirpur as Bangladesh Women beat Hong Kong women by 115 runs.

Hong Kong won the toss and elected to field first, perhaps hoping to bowl as well as they did on Thursday. Captain Salma Kahtun held the Bangladeshi innings together with 63, whilst Panna Gosh (40) also batted well. Connie Wong was the best Hong Kong bowler with 3/47 in the Bangladesh total of 211/9.

Hong Kong's innings was very top heavy. Neisha Pratt scored 61, but Connie Wong (14) was the only other player to reach double figures. Betty Chan scored six, but the other eight were all out for ducks. Pratt fell at 96/7, at which point Jahanara Alam came on to bowl her first over. She promptly took a hat-trick with her only three balls to polish of the tail.

Whilst there have been some decent individual performances in this series for Hong Kong, mainly coming from Neisha Pratt, Connie Wong and Betty Chan, as a whole Hong Kong have been completely outclassed by a Bangladeshi side that will be playing in the Asia Cup in Sri Lanka in a month's time.
