In the second match of the series, the Indian women's team secured a victory as well. They clinched a win by 19 runs (DLS) against Bangladesh in a rain-interrupted match held in Sylhet. Batting first, the Bangladeshi women lost all wickets within the allotted 20 overs, managing to score 119 runs. In response, India lost 1 wicket and scored 47 runs in 5.2 overs before the rain interrupted the game. With the DLS method applied, India was declared the winner.

India started with a modest target but lost wickets early in the innings. Marufa Akhtar dismissed Shafali Verma for a duck in the second ball of the innings. However, the way newcomer Hemlata played her shots brought momentum to the Indian innings. On the other hand, opener Smriti Mandhana couldn't capitalize on the opportunity. Hemlata remained unbeaten with 41 runs off 24 balls while Smriti managed only 5 runs off 7 balls before the rain halted play.

Bangladesh won the toss and opted to bat first. However, their openers, Dilara Akter, failed to perform well today. Another opener, Murshida Khatun, held on till the end of the innings but couldn't contribute much. She partnered with Sobhana Mostary, but when Sobhana departed, the team's score was 42.

The next three batters, including captain Nigar Sultana Joty, couldn't add much to the score. Ritu Moni came to bat and scored 20 runs off 18 balls. With Ritu's departure, Bangladesh returned with a total of 101 runs.

With four overs remaining, the rest of the batters struggled to score singles. Murshida got out on the first ball of the last over, ending her innings with 46 runs off 49 balls. In the same over, Farzana Trisna got dismissed, and Bangladesh was all out for 119 runs.

For India, Radha Yadav was the most successful bowler, picking up a maximum of 3 wickets.
