Welcome to Sportstar's coverage of the 2022 ODI Women's World Cup. This is Lavanya Lakshmi Narayanan bringing you the latest from the WC game between Pakistan and Bangladesh in Hamilton on Monday.

Sidra Ameen:
We win as a team and lose as a team. Yes I got a hundred but I am not able to celebrate this as we couldn't get over the line.

Fahima Khatun (Player of the Match): I would like to thank the almighty. I'm always ready to play for my team and I was not nervous. I bowled in the right areas and the success came. I'm really excited and happy that I could perform for my team.

Bismah Maroof:
It is very hard to digest, we were in the game, bad shots from the middle order cost us the game. Sidra was playing well, she will be disappointed she could not finish the game. We should have chased it down. Two close games we did not win. We have to take some positives, move forward and try to come back harder in the next game.

Nigar Sultana Joty: I cannot describe this in words. This is out first-ever win in World Cups. History we have made today. We are looking forward to carry this momentum throughout the tournament. We know Pakistan very well, we played each other so many times. We beat them in the last over in the qualifier also. Winning gives us the confidence and this is the momentum we always wanted, we have a good side and are constantly improving, we know that we are a very capable team.

TOSS: Pak won the toss and chose to bowl

3:00 AM: Match Preview:

Bangladesh come up against familiar rivals Pakistan on Monday hunting for their maiden ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup win.

Both sides are yet to pick up points in the 2022 tournament, with Bangladesh making their debut at a women’s one-day World Cup this year.

The Tigresses have beaten Pakistan more than any other team, triumphing five out of the 11 times the two sides have met. 

Bangladesh opened their World Cup with two losses in Dunedin, firstly unable to capitalise on bowling South Africa out for 207 in a 32-run defeat, before losing a rain-affected match to hosts New Zealand. 

With both sides yet to taste victory and no matches ending in ties, one of Pakistan and Bangladesh will put points on the board, even if it comes in a super over. 

For Pakistan, they faced rivals India in their opener and succumbed to a 107-run defeat after bewitching India’s top order.

They were then comfortably beaten by Australia before South Africa came out on top in a nervy meeting in Tauranga.

2:45 AM:
Hello everyone! The 12th edition of the Women's Cricket World Cup is finally underway in New Zealand. The tournament which was initially scheduled to be played in February - March 2021, was postponed by a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Match #12 will see Pakistan take on Bangladesh in Hamilton.
