Current Asia Cup champions Bangladesh are expected to gave a difficult outing under lights against their powerful neighbours, who beat hosts and pre-tournament favourites Australia in their first Group A match

The Bangladesh cricket team have a challenging start in the Women’s T20 World Cup as they take on India in their opening match at Perth, Australia Monday.

Current Asia Cup champions Bangladesh are expected to gave a difficult outing under lights against their powerful neighbours, who beat hosts and pre-tournament favourites Australia in their first Group A match. 

However, the Bangladesh side, who beat India in the Asia Cup final at Malaysia in 2018, got a boost ahead of the big occasion by beating Pakistan in the practice match.

Bangladesh reached Australia three weeks ago for a conditioning camp and senior member Jahanara Alam was upbeat before the start.

“We reached here on February 3 and had a 20-day conditioning camp. As there was rain, no team could get enough preparation and we are no exception, but we managed to play a practice match and got confidence by beating Pakistan,” said Jahanara. 

“We beat India twice in the Asia Cup, but those matches took place long ago. We treat the game as a new one. We have unity and we believe we can do well and will take field to win,” said the pace bowler. 

The match will start at 5:00 pm Bangladesh Standard Time and Star Sports will telecast it live.
