Dhaka, July 19 (UNB) — Bangladesh emerging women’s cricket team left Dhaka for South Africa on Friday to play a three-match one-day and a three-match T20 series against the Proteas women’s team.
Anju Jain, the coach of the Bangladesh national women’s cricket team, will coach the emerging team during this tour. She is excited about the most-awaited tour to South Africa.
“It’s really good to have tours of the emerging team. It’ll help us to 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 Jain told the media on Thursday at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
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 monitored the premier league closely before finalizing the 14-member squad. Earlier we’d shortlisted 28 girls. I do hope they’ll do well in South Africa,” she further said.
The ODIs will take place on July 23, 25 and 28 while the T20s will be held on July 28, August 1 and 4.
