Head coach Golam Rabbani Choton made two changes in the starting XI from the first two matches, resting Anai Mogini and Shamsunnahar.
He said, “It was the most difficult game among three practice matches because the opponent are an university team with players aged 20 or above. But we had the best opening half. The girls improved in every game.”
