Bangladesh lost the first match by 118 runs after being bowled out for 95 runs. Thereafter they were dismissed for just 97 runs in the second game to suffer a six-wicket defeat.

In the final game, which they played to avoid the whitewash, they came up with more miserable performance than the previous two matches. Captain Nigar Sultana was the top-scorer for the side with 16 while No.11 batter Marufa Akter made 15 not out. Shorna Akter and Sultana Khatun were the two other batters to reach double digits by scoring 10 runs each.
