That's all from this game folks! We'll be back in a couple of days with the live coverage of the second T20I, do tune in for that. For now, you can switch tabs and follow our live coverage of other games, particularly, the Ashes. We are in for an exciting finish. Ciao!

Harmanpreet, Player of the Match: We were able to execute our plans. It was a great performance by our team. I wanted to see how our bowlers were going to bowl in the first 6 overs. I think Deepti showed her experience. Smriti showed her character today, with that batting line-up you don't need to worry much. We wanted to finish with 4-5 overs left, and we managed to do that.

Nigar Sultana: The bowlers bowled well, looking forward to the next match. There were a lot of dot balls and we fell short by 20-30 runs, so we would like to work on that (for the next match.)

16:50 Local Time, 10:50 GMT, 16:20 IST: India Women register a convincing 7-wicket victory and go 1-0 up in this 3-match T20I series. Electing to bowl first, it was a brilliant effort by the Indian bowlers to restrict Bangladesh Women to such a mediocre total. Pooja Vastrakar and Deepti Sharma were pretty impressive as they restricted the oppostion batters on a pitch that assisted them. In reply, Shafali Verma was dismissed for a duck and Jemimah Rodrigues couldn't chip in with a signficant contribution either, but Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur took control of proceedings and had a match-defining partnership thereafter. Mandhana was stumped when India were closer to the target, but Harmanpreet scored a fifty, she stayed there till the end and took India Women over the line. A clinical win and India will be pretty pleased with their performance. Stay around for the presentation..
