2022 ICC Women’s World Cup Team Preview-Bangladesh women

Led by Nigar Sultana, Bangladesh Women team is playing their first ever World Cup in history. They qualified for the Super eight spot when the ICC World Cup qualifiers were called off due to Covid-19. Based on their rankings they eventually qualified for the highly celebrated tournament of the game.

With playing their inaugural tournament, Bangladesh Women have got some great players in their squad. The one who has potential, talent, and ability to beat the best in the game. Although Bangladesh Women haven’t played much of the ODI cricket like other teams but the Skipper Nigar has her passion high and dream focused.

Fargana Hoque and Rumana Ahmed are surely the one to watch out for, the former one has an average of over 67 in her last six ODIs, whereas all-rounder Rumana is Bangladesh’s highest wicket-taker in ODIs with 45 scalps at an average of 24.26

Prior to the World Cup beginning, Sultana explained the quality and speciality of her team.

“Of our current squad, openers Murshida Khatun and Sharmin Akhter Supta played well in the qualifiers and are in very good touch. Rumana Ahmed has always been there when our team needed her and Salma Khatun is one of the best all-rounders in the world.

“In the bowling attack, we have added a fast young bowler, Suraiya Azmin, who the cricket world hasn’t seen very much of yet, and Fariha Trisna offers a left-arm option.

“We have three former captains – Salma, Rumana and Jahanara Alam – in our team, who are helping me a lot and I’m taking on board all their advice.

“On a personal level, it is a great opportunity for me to lead the team into our first-ever World Cup. If we could do well here, it’s going to be a great historical moment for all of us.”

If we discuss Bangladesh’s performance in the ongoing edition of the Women ODI World Cup, the Bengal Tigers has won only one game so far and it was against Pakistan. After putting up a target of 234, they restricted Pakistan to 225, thereby winning their first ever game in Women World Cup by 9 runs.

In there recent clash against West Indies, they were close to pick their second victory in the tournament but fell short of 4 runs

Bangladesh Women now will play against India, Australia, and England on 22,25, and 27 March, respectively.

Bangladesh might not make it into the next stage of the tournament and the way they have performed against the likes of Pakistan and West Indies, it tells about their potential and commitment. If not today, but in the coming times this team will become a force to reckon with.
