Murshida Khatun and Nigar Sultana of Bangladesh combined for an unbroken second wicket stand of 138 runs as they helped their team collect 158 runs. Murshida Khatun struck 77 off 64 while Nigar Sultana added 56 off 40.

US captain Sindhu Sriharsha struck 74 from 71 while chasing the challenging target, but her team could only manage 103 runs after losing three wickets.

Bangladesh will now play in the semifinal, and a victory there would guarantee them a spot in the T20 World Cup, which is set to take place in South Africa the following year.
