ACC Women’s Premier Cup 2024- Review: Day 2 Highlights and Recap

After a riveting Day 1 of the ACC Women’s Premier Cup 2024 that witnessed remarkable encounters, Day 2 of the tournament certainly lived up to the billing.

Here’s how Day 2 unfolded of ACC Women’s Premier Cup 2024:

Group A

Thailand vs Kuwait- Thailand won by 96 Runs

Thailand kept up the momentum and registered a 96-run win versus Kuwait at Bangi.

Batting first, Thailand amassed 177/2 in their 20 overs. Driven by a blistering knock of 83 coming from 64 balls as skipper Naruemol Chaiwai stepped on the accelerator and delivered, it was assured and supportive knocks of 20 from Nannapat Koncharoenkai, 37 from Thipatcha Putthawong and 26 from Chanida Sutthiruang that saw this massive total posted.

In the run-chase that followed, Kuwait slipped to 81/9 in their 20 overs with none of the batters scoring valuable runs barring Zeefa Jilani and Balasubramani Shanti.

Singapore vs Myanmar- Myanmar won by 5 Wickets

Myanmar romped to a five-wicket win over Singapore at Bangi. Batting first, Singapore posted a dismal 87/8 on the board with no other batter other than Ada Bhasin score runs. Zin Kyaw stood out with three wickets for Myanmar.

In the run-chase that followed, Khin Myat kickstarted the proceedings with a balanced knock of 28 and with Zin Kyaw’s 26, Myanmar chased down the total in 14.3 overs.

Group B

UAE vs Oman- UAE won by 148 Runs

UAE once again displayed nerves of steel stitching a massive 148-run win versus Oman in this much-anticipated match.

Batting first, riding in the heroics of skipper Esha Oza’s 114, Kavisha Egodage’s 38 and Theertha Satish’s 20- UAE posted a massive 176/1 on the board. In the second essay, UAE skittled Oman for a paltry 28 as Suraksha Kotte stood out with three wickets with support from Heena Hotchandani, Esha Oza, Samaira Dharnidharka, Mehak Thakur and Vaishnave Mahesh cleaning up Oman’s batting to ensure a massive 148 run win.

China vs Japan- Japan win by 4 Wickets

In the battle of supremacy between China and Japan, an interesting yet competitive low-scoring encounter was witnessed. Skittled for a dismal 75 in the first essay, China had a far from memorable batting effort with no batter barring Sun Meng Yao and Han Lili standing up and taking responsibility. Ahilya Chandel from Japan struck with four wickets and was supported by the rest of the bowling brilliantly.

In the run-chase that followed, Erika Oda led from the front with a knock of 31 and with Shimako Kato’s 17; other calm and composed knocks meant Japan sealed an easy win by four wickets.

Group C

Indonesia vs Bahrain- Indonesia won by 88 Runs

Indonesia pulled off a massive 88-run win against Bahrain at Kuala Lumpur. Riding on the knock of 71 by Ni Putu Ayu Nanda Sakarini and contributions of 14 and 21 from Maria Corazon- Indonesia posted 129/5 on the board.

To back up their batting effort, they bowled out Bahrain for 41 as no other batter barring Deepika Rasangika crossed the double-figure mark. It was a clinical bowling effort for Indonesia with Ni Wayan Sariani scalping three wickets with Sang Ayu, Desi Wulandari and Ni Made Putri Suwandewi chipping in with crucial wickets.

Malaysia vs Qatar- Malaysia won by 39 Runs

Malaysia pulled off a memorable 39-run win versus Qatar in Kuala Lumpur. Scoring a competitive 115/9 driven by Mas Elysa’s 23, Mahirah Izzati Ismail’s 19, and Winifred Duraisingam’s 17- it was a collective batting effort for Malaysia. Qatar had Sudha Thapa pick three wickets, Aysha with two and support from the rest of the bowling department.

In the run-chase, Qatar stumbled to 76 all out as Angeline Mare’s 36 was the only recognised and decent batting score as the rest of the batters could not contribute at all, in an innings that witnessed over four run outs.

Group D

Bhutan vs Nepal- Nepal won by 8 Wickets

Nepal cruised to an eight-wicket win over Bhutan in a low-scoring contest at Kuala Lumpur. Batting first, Bhutan posted a lowly 65/4 in a very disappointing batting effort as none of the batters who got starts like Ngawang Choden, Tshering Zangmo or Dechen Wangmo could make the most of their stays at the crease.

In return, Nepal had Sita Rana Magar top score with a knock of 32 with Rubina Chhetry’s 17 sealing the deal in 11.5 overs and paving the way for an eight-wicket win for Nepal.

Hong Kong vs Maldives- Hong Kong won by 172 runs

In another massive drubbing for the Maldives, Hong Kong inflicted a major 172-run defeat over them. Batting first, Hong Kong piled on a big total of 222/1 as Mariko Hill smashed a 65-ball 100 and with Kary Chan’s 87; Hong Kong was rest assured of an easy win.

Playing out exactly in the manner expected, Maldives were dismissed for a lowly 50 as none of the batters delivered and it was Kary Chan’s four wickets that broke the back of the batting with Maryam Bibi’s three wickets further helping the cause.
