Dhaka, July 18 (UNB) - Anju Jain, the coach of Bangladesh national women cricket team, is excited about Bangladesh emerging women team’s most-awaited tour to South Africa. The team will fly for South Africa on July 20.
“It’s really good to have tours of emerging team. It’ll help us find out our bench strength. We’ll play the Asia Cup soon. So this tour is very important for the players we have in the squad,” Anju told the media on Thursday at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
In the emerging team, 4-5 girls got the chance for the first or second time. According to the coach, this tour will be a good opportunity for the new girls to prove their mettle for the national team.
“We’ve finished a camp in Rajshahi and we also had an eye in the premier league, and we also had an eye in the premier league. Before finalising the 14-member, we’d shortlisted 28 girls. I hope they’ll do well in South Africa,” she further added.
Bangladesh emerging team will play three ODIs and as many as T20 matches against their South African counterparts.
The ODIs will take place on July 23, 25 and 28 while the T20s will be held on July 28, August 1 and 4.
Dhaka, July 18 (UB) - The five-match one day series between hosts Bangladesh A team and touring Afghanistan begins on Friday (July 19) at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in the port city of Chattogram.
The first three one-day matches will be held in Chattogram on July 19, 21 and 24 while the last two matches are scheduled to be held at BKSP ground in Savar on July 27 and 29.
Meanwhile, four national players -- Rubel Hossain, Anamul Haque, Sabbir Rahman and Mohammad Mithun -- are set to feature in the first unofficial ODI.
These four cricketers are the part of the national team which will fly for Sri Lanka on July 20 to play a three-match ODI series.
Apart from Anamul, the other three were the part of Bangladesh team during their World Cup campaign but failed to make the XI in most of the matches. So it was important for them to have some match practice before touring to Sri Lanka.
Anamul has been playing for A team from the start of the series against Afghanistan A. The right-handed top-order batsman struck a century in the first four-day game in Khulna, which might have prompted the selectors to consider him for the Sri Lanka tour in the absence of Liton Das.
Before the ODI series, Bangladesh A lost two-match four-day series against Afghanistan as they managed to win the first game by a big margin of seven wickets and drew the last match in Chattogram.
Although the 2nd string Bangladesh team settled for a draw against visiting Afghanistan in the rain-interrupted 2nd four-day match in Chattogram , they lost the two-match four-day unofficial Test series 0-1.
Earlier, Bangladesh A team suffered a seven-wicket defeat against the touring side in the first four-day unofficial Test at the Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna.
