Tigresses end T20 World Cup mission empty-handed

The Bangladesh Women’s team’s T20 World Cup campaign came to an end in defeat after they were humiliated by South Africa by a score of 10 wickets in their final group encounter on Tuesday in Cape Town, South Africa.

Arriving here expecting to win at least a few games, they were on the losing side in every game they played this time. They suffered a seven-wicket defeat in their opening encounter against Sri Lanka, an eight-wicket loss to Australia, a 71-run loss to New Zealand, and now their worst-ever performance in the final game.
