Speaking on the importance of the qualifiers and the preparation of his team, Bangladesh Women team’s coach Nazmul Abedeen Fahim said, “We have to play well in this tournament in order to get a place in the main World Cup in Australia. After the preparation camp in Bangladesh, we will have a 10-day practice camp in the Netherlands, where we will play four practice games as well.”

Taking a dig at the team’s limitations, he said, “We don’t have quality hitters in the team who can do better in T20 cricket. Usually, we play 50-overs cricket in the domestic circuit. So it is really tough for us to find some batters who can maintain a strike-rate around 115-120.”

“But we are optimistic about a batter – Sobhana Mostari. She has the tendency to bat in an aggressive manner,” he added.
