After winning with nine runs over Hong Kong on Tuesday, the Bhutan’s women cricket team lost to Indonesia by four wickets in the on-going ASEAN Women’s T20 Open Tournament yesterday in Thailand.

Bhutan decided to bat first after winning the toss. However, all top three batters returned to the dugout in the first five overs. Except for Yeshey Choden’s sturdy innings of 15 runs off 26 balls, none of the Bhutanese batters managed to score in double figures.

Indonesia’s Andriani Andrian managed to take three wickets conceding just 10 runs. Bhutan was bowled out for a meagre 48 runs.

Bhutan’s Anju Gurung went rampant and picked up four early wickets in her four overs. Her aggressive bowling had Indonesia struggling at one point.

But the target put on by the batters was too small to defend for the bowlers as Indonesia chased down the target in 10 overs. Bhutan will take on Malaysia, today, at the Terd Thai Cricket Ground.

Six teams are participating in the tournament including host Thailand.
