Salma Khatun had 52 wickets at an average of 22.69, which was the best score for Bangladesh before her. Nahida has become Bangladesh’s best bowler over the years. She made her start in 2015, when she was only 15 years old. With 86 wickets at 16.15, two more than Salma’s 84 scalps at 18.57, she is already the T20I player with the most wickets.

In ODIs, Nahida has taken wickets at a rate of 3.76 per over and an average of 21.84. She has been very important in helping Bangladesh beat India, Pakistan, and South Africa recently.

Even though she was not playing well today, Australia easily beat Bangladesh. The foreigners won the first ODI by 118 runs, giving them a 1-0 lead in the series. This three-game ODI match is going on as part of the ICC Women’s Championship.
