India, who had lifted the title on all six occasions since the inception of the tournament in 2004, were aiming to lift a seventh title in Malaysia but the Indian batting line-up, barring captain Harmanpreet Kaur, failed to live up to their billing and managed to put only 112 runs on board.

In the Indian innings, Harmanpreet Kaur, who fell off the last delivery trying to go for the maximum runs, was the only up spark in a rather tiresome performance from the other Indian batswomen.

In another quick shock to India, Anuja Patil (3) was declared out for obstructing the field in the second ball of the ninth over. She made sure India finish well. She finished with astounding figures of 4/9 from his four overs. India restricted their arch-rivals to 72 for 7 in 20 overs after losing the toss.

Bangladeshi spinners were clinical. Fargana Haque and Nigar Sultana then started the rebuilding job and took the Bangladesh score past the 50-run mark.

Bangladesh's Khadija-tul Kubra and Rumana took two wickets each while seamer Jahanara Alam and T20I captain Salma Khatun notched one apiece. There were two wickets in the final over, which was bowled by Harmanpreet.

Nigar Sultana eased the pressure in her 24-ball 27 runs with 4 fours.

The Indian skipper accounted for two batters - Sanjida Islam and Rumana Ahmed - to derail Bangladeshi hopes but Jahanara Alam scored two off the final ball, to help Bangladesh create history.

Injuries to first-choice Shikha Pandey and Deepti Sharma meant Harmanpreet took the matters in her own hands. "It was not a decent total, but we fought til the end so the credit goes to the bowlers", said Harmanpreet who was adjudged the Player of the Tournament. With nine runs to get in the final over, Harmanpreet stepped up to try and defend but despite the drama, she couldn't prevent 2 runs on the last ball. Rumana was run out at the non-striker's end after taking a single on thehe fifth delivery. This was the second occasion that Bangladesh defeated India in the tournament after stunning them earlier in the league stage. However, unlike India, Bangladesh managed to stitch together little partnerships to keep themselves in the fray.
