Nat’l women’s team to play final practice match at SBNCS today

Team for Women’s T20 World Cup leaves for Windies tomorrow
Sports Reporter

Bangladesh women’s cricket team normally didn’t get opportunity to play at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium for so many years.

Due to the hectic schedule of the male’s team, their bilateral home series and tournaments along with their practice session held at different venues of the country. Many of them have been staged at Cox’s Bazar, Sylhet, Rajshahi and Khulna.

Before flying for the ensuing ICC Women’s Twenty20 World Cup, the Tigresses will get chance to play a practice match under the floodlight at the SBNCS.

The Asia Cup champions will play the match against Dhaka Metro Under-15 boys team on Monday evening. Prior to any tournament or international series, Salma and company play against the team as a part of the preparation.

The Bangladesh eves’ earlier played two practice matches against the same team at the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB)-National Cricket Academy (NCA) ground on Friday and Saturday respectively. This time the World Cup-bound women’s team will play at the 22-yard wicket of the country’s Home of Cricket.

In this regard, Nazmul Abedin Faheem, team operating manager of Bangladesh women’s cricket team, said that the team will play their third and last practice match under the floodlight of the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.

“We have held some practice sessions at night in Mirpur as a part of our team’s World Cup preparation. In West Indies, we have to play at night. So, there is a matter of adjusting with the condition of the night,” said Nazmul Abedin Faheem.

“Last one and half-a-year, our girls have been playing practice matches against Dhaka Metro Under-15 boys team. Target is to see how much the team improved.  Both the teams have been benefited from this arrangement. They are good as an opponent for our women’s team,” Faheem said.

Bangladesh national women’s cricket team is scheduled to depart Dhaka for West Indies at 7:30pm on Tuesday. It was a matter of pride to take part in the previous two editions of the extravaganza event in 2011 and 2014.

They targeted something bigger as they will go to the Caribbean Islands with the hopes of the semifinals of the mega event this time around.

The 20-over world Cup in the West Indies will be begin on November 9. Before going into the main games, the Tigresses will play a total of five matches, three of them will be played against the local teams and two of it, accredited by ICC will be played against Pakistan on November 4 and Ireland on November 6.
