Bangladesh women’s team continued on their history-making march when they defeated host Ireland 2-1 in a T20I series recently. This marked the first ever T20I series victory for the Bangladesh side which have been turning heads in recent times. 

Earlier in June, the Salma Khatun-led team had emerged Asian champion against all odds in the Asia Cup 2018 in Malaysia where they beat favourite India twice, including in the final.

Bangladesh women’s team are currently playing the qualifiers of the World T20I in the Netherlands and are well on course to secure one of the two spots in the main event, to be held in the West Indies in November, 2018. The Tigresses defeated Papua New Guinea and host Netherlands to take one step closer to the World T20I.

BCB president Nazmul Hasan, MP, was there when the women’s team received their winner’s trophy in Dublin, Ireland. Nazmul presented Bangladesh pacer Jahanara Alam the player of the series crest. Jahanara, who hit the winning runs in the epic triumph over India in the Asia Cup, was a star with the ball in Ireland. She took seven wickets in the series, including a first five-wicket haul for Bangladesh in women’s cricket. 

The BCB boss, who was in Dublin for the ICC annual conference, made time to watch the women cricketers in action and assured them of the BCB’s support to the team and women’s cricket in Bangladesh.
