Like any other sports, women's cricket has been somewhat overshadowed by men's. While the male cricketers are worshipped like heroes and icons, even the best of female cricketers barely get noticed.
But interestingly for Bangladesh, the women's team have achieved something remarkable before the men, winning a multinational tournament.
As astonishing as it gets, Bangladesh Women's cricket team won a multi-nation tournament before the male counterparts. The men were agonisingly close to winning one several times.
But every time they fell short before winning a triangular series in Ireland in 2019. But the women had done it a year earlier.
On this day, three years ago, Bangladesh women beat six-time champions India to lift their maiden Asia Cup title.
They beat India Women by three wickets in the final that went right down to the wire.
Bangladesh had to chase down 113 in 20 overs.
Bowling first, Bangladesh restricted India to 112 runs. Rumana Ahmed and Khadija Tul Kubra bagged a brace each.
Bangladesh weren't really comfortably chasing 113. They lost two wickets on the fourth and fifth balls and the match spills onto the final ball, with Bangladesh women needing two to win.
It came down to the very last ball and Jahanara Alam scampered for two runs to seal Bangladesh's first title in the continental championship.
A thriller. A heartbreak for six-time champions India. A perfect ending for Bangladesh. Joy and agony. History was created in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
