Bangladesh bowl Maldives out for just six after Nigar's milestone

Bangladesh's Nigar Sultana became the first women from the country to record a T20 century as Bangladesh posted 255 against Maldives in their South Asian Games match, which ended in a massive 249-run win over a side barely used to playing cricket. 

Nigar hit an unbeaten 65-ball 113 punctuated by 14 fours and three boundaries and narrowly bested Fargana Hoque, who hit a 53-ball 110 with 20 fours, to the milestone.

After the exchange, Maldives were incredibly bowled out for just 6 runs in 12 overs. Ritu Moni and Salma Khatun took three wickets each.

Seven of Maldives' batters were out for a duck, with the highest score coming from Shamma Ali, who scored two. Four of Maldives' players -- Latsha Haleemath, Sajaa Fathimath, Eashal Ibrahim and Shamma -- are yet to celebrate their 15th birthdays. Their number three batter, Sumayya Abdul, is just 11 years old, while Hamza Niyaz is 15.
