Bangladesh’s women team manager Javed Omar Belim said he was pleased with the manner women’s teams from Bangladesh began practicing in South Africa, the Netherlands, and Scotland after their Asia Cup victory. Javed additionally said Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) should push their heads a lot to women cricket for their further improvement with the goal that they can make its continuation in days to come what they are doing well at this point.
“I always give much importance on any achievement whether it is a men’s or women’s team while Bangladesh is in games. I’ve seen women’s team playing far away for so long. They became champions beating India in Asia Cup that was interesting and matter of good feeling for me,” Javed Omar Belim, who has been in control of the Tigresses since the South African tour as team manager, said.
“I started my journey with the South Africa tour. I’m very much impressed with women’s team the way they won the ODI series against the Proteas. Though they lost the Twenty20 series, they were very much close doors at victory, which is the biggest achievement. It was a different condition and had different flavors. In Scotland, it was not easier for them to play and win matches one after another. No doubt, we were much ahead of them on pen and paper, whatever they are, Thailand, Ireland, Scotland, Netherlands and PNG,” Belim said to The Independent.
“It’s just beginning for the women’s cricket. The BCB is poking their heads for them. We’ve to poke our heads into their cricket because we have to make sure a good process for them. We’re qualified for the World T20 which will be a good sign for the next generation. Such type of success will help Bangladesh negotiate in ICC to take more matches for them. I’m very much happy for it,” he added.
“In power-hitting, Bangladesh men’s team has always struggled especially in Twenty20. When we started playing better cricket in ODI, we thought we’ll play better in Test and T20. But we can’t do it because of power-cricket. Our women are naturally behind South Africa and the West Indies in power. But I’m not worried about it because you can increase power-cricket by playing more games. I’m worried about its process,” he said.
He said that the team should play at whatever point they get an opportunity to play coordinates under the respective and multilateral arrangements and competitions. He likewise said that they will be influenced more in the event that they don’t play matches with a reason for injury.
“Eight months after Asia Cup, we’d gone to play in South Africa, then the Netherlands and Scotland. It’s important for us to play a match. We’ll start practice from September 20. India ‘A’ Team will come here in Bangladesh in October. We’ll go to Sri Lanka and Pakistan. It’s not a matter of hectic because in the professional level, you have to do it”, Belim stated.
