Tigresses

Bangladesh got their title defense of the Women’s Asia Cup to a perfect start with a 9-wicket victory over Thailand in the opening fixture of the eighth edition of the tournament at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium on Saturday.

Shamima Sultana’s 30-ball 49 propelled the hosts to the victory target of 83 for the loss of one wicket in 11.4 overs.

Opener Shamima, who hit 10 fours in her essay, was bowled around her legs one run away from a richly-deserved half-century. Fargana Hoque remained unbeaten on 26 while skipper Nigar Sultana Joty was not out 10.

Prior, Thailand elected to bat first after winning the toss. After losing 2 wickets for 16, opener Natthakan Chantham and Phannita Maya (coming at four) stitched together a stand of 38 runs of 37 balls on the 3rd wicket.

However, the Tigresses’ bowling attack came firing in cylinders afterward. Rumana Ahmed’s 3-wicket-haul alongside a couple of wickets each from Nahida Akter, Sanjida Akter Meghla and Shohely Akhter bundled out Thailand for 82 in 19.2 overs.

In a recent development, ten companies have undergone a change in their categories, transitioning to the ‘Z’ category in the Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE). The information comes from official sources from DSE.

The companies affected by this reclassification include Alltex Industries, Aramit Cement, Aziz Pipes, Delta Spinning, FAS Finance and Investment Limited, GBB Power Limited, Intech Limited, International Leasing, Keya Cosmetics, Khulna Printing, National Tea, Premier Leasing, Regent Textile, Ring Shine Textile, Safko Spinning, Standard Ceramics, Dacca Dyeing, Union Capital, Uttara Finance and Investment Limited, Yeakin Polymer, and Zahintex Industries Limited.

Effective from today (18th February), trading for these companies in the ‘Z’ category has commenced.

Sources reveal that these companies have been transferred to the ‘Z’ category due to their inability to hold the annual general meeting (AGM) within the stipulated time, remaining closed for more than six months, and having higher liabilities than assets.

Before this update, there were 27 companies in the ‘Z’ category at the DSE. With the addition of 22 more companies, the total number of companies in the ‘Z’ category has now reached 49.

It is noteworthy that companies failing to hold the AGM within the specified time, remaining closed for more than six months, or having higher liabilities than assets are moved to the ‘Z’ category after undergoing the necessary scrutiny and reevaluation.

Bangladesh Makes History: Clinches First T20I Win on New Zealand Soil

In a historic moment, Bangladesh secured their maiden T20I victory on New Zealand soil, achieving a memorable five-wicket win in Napier on Wednesday. Spearheaded by Shoriful Islam’s impressive three-wicket performance and Litton Das’s unbeaten 42, the Tigers successfully chased down a challenging target of 135. Despite facing setbacks with regular wicket falls, Litton Das displayed resilience, guiding Bangladesh to victory with eight balls to spare.

The early departure of Rony Talukdar (10) in the second over set the tone, followed by Najmul Hossain Shanto’s confident start (19) that couldn’t materialize, and Soumya Sarkar’s promising innings (22) cut short by a stunning delivery from Ben Sears. Towhid Hridoy (18) and Afif Hossain (1) fell quickly, but Mahedi Hasan (19*) held firm, eventually hitting the winning shot off Adam Milne.

Bangladesh’s bowlers set the stage for success by limiting New Zealand to their lowest T20I total against them – 134 for nine. Mahedi struck early, and Shoriful’s two-wicket burst in the second over put the Black Caps in a precarious position at 2 for 3. Contributions from Mahedi and Mustafizur Rahman, who took two wickets each, further stymied the hosts. Despite efforts from James Neesham (48) and Mitchell Santner (23) to rebuild, the total proved insufficient against Bangladesh’s determined pursuit.

This triumph signifies a significant turnaround for Bangladesh, marking their first-ever white-ball victories in New Zealand. With two consecutive victories on Kiwi soil, Bangladesh has etched a new chapter in their cricketing history.
