Sultana said she expected better from the more experienced players in the side. "Sometimes, pressure works on players individually when there are a couple of dot balls and then there are two more trying to overcome that. It's okay for those who are coming from the Under-19 level but when it is from those who are playing for the national team regularly, then it is frustrating to see.

Deepti Sharma felt that the wicket was quite difficult to bat on and India's experienced bowlers outshone their opponents.

"They played well in the powerplay and did well in the middle overs. I think their emerging players also played well but we have experienced bowlers who know where to bowl in the middle overs and we just executed the plan. They can of course do well in the coming days," Deepti said.

Bangladesh will take on India in the next game at the same venue on July 11
