Women’s cricket has grown leaps and bounds in recent times. Barring few hiccups caused by the unavoidable pandemic-like situation caused by COVID19, women’s cricket has been on a roll throughout the globe. Given the unprecedented times that we all were in and with no outdoor activities happening, the interest in online games has grown manifold. Several betting and gambling websites have seen a huge surge in overall traffic and viewership. Online casinos India has become a primary medium for fans to bet on as cricket fans have found an alternate source for their entertainment.
With the vaccines now being introduced and the COVID numbers going down, the Asian Cricket community has gradually resumed its practice sessions. One such team is Bangladesh women’s cricket team who is gearing up for the coming season.
Yesterday, on 17th February, Bangladesh’s female cricketers began their training camp at the Cricket Academy Ground in Mirpur. The camp will be held across 13 days and has a total of 32 women cricketers of the Bangladesh National Women’s Cricket team and Bangladesh Emerging Women’s Cricket team participating in it.
This coaching camp is a run-up to the upcoming Bangabandhu Bangladesh games, the curtain of which will be raised on April 1, and the South Africa Women’s Cricket team’s tour. The Bangladesh women cricketers had to report to their coaches on February 15 and they underwent a fitness test on a subsequent day.
Once the camp concludes on the 1st of March, the cricketers will move to Sylhet for another 5-day coaching camp there. Following it, the Bangladesh National Women’s Cricket team, Bangladesh Emerging Women’s Cricket team, and Bangladesh Under 19 Cricket team will participate in the cricket competition of the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Games which will be played in One Day International format across four matches.
The Emerging Women’s Cricket team of South Africa is scheduled to reach Bangladesh on March 28 for a five-match one day series against Bangladesh Women’s Cricket team. All the matches will be played at the same venue which is the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium starting at 9:30 am.
Bangladesh women’s cricket team last played a game during the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup on 2nd March 2020 against Sri Lanka. They had a dismal match as they scored just 91 runs for the loss of eight wickets which Sri Lanka women chased down rather easily with 9 wickets to spare. Part of Group A, Bangladesh had a rather uneventful tournament as they finished last on the points table with zero wins and four losses to their name.
The series opener against the South Africa Emerging women’s cricket team is scheduled to be played on 4th April with the fifth and the final match of the series will be played on April 13.
