Bengali cricket is a crazy nation. Although the boys played in the World Cup ODI, the girls of Bangladesh did not play. Those Bangladeshi girls will play in the Cricket World Cup this time. This is the joy of all Bengali cricket lovers. Despite playing in the T20 World Cup four times before, the Bangladesh girls have never played in the ODI World Cup. They are fifth each time they play twice in the qualifiers.
Bengali cricket is a mind-boggling national sport. Bangladesh’s girls did not participate in the World Cup One-Day Internationals, although their male counterparts did. This year’s Cricket World Cup will feature Bangladeshi female players. This is a cause for celebration for all Bengali cricket fans. Despite competing in four T20 World Cups, the Bangladesh women’s team has never qualified for an ODI World Cup. Each time they compete in the qualifiers, they finish fifth.
For the first time, the ODI World Cup has been confirmed for the girls of Bangladesh. The ICC has announced the cancellation of the girls’ World Cup qualifiers in Harare, Zimbabwe, due to a new variant of the Corona, which opens the door for the Bangladesh team to compete in the world cup tournament.
Divided into two groups, nine teams played in the qualifying round in Zimbabwe. The three teams were supposed to go to the main event. But with the cancellation of the qualifying game, the ICC has now selected three groups based on the rankings.
Bangladesh’s girls have been confirmed to compete in their first ODI World Cup. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has cancelled the girls’ World Cup qualifiers in Harare, Zimbabwe, due to the introduction of a new variant of the Corona, which benefits Bangladesh.
Many people are delighted for Bangladesh, as their women’s cricket team has been granted tickets to the World Cup finals. Zimbabwe’s qualifying round featured nine teams split into two groups. The three teams were supposed to advance to the championship round. However, due to the cancellation of the qualifying game, the ICC has created three groups based on ranking.
Bangladesh got the ticket for the main episode due to being at number five in the rankings. The West Indies and Pakistan, who are in the seventh and eighth positions, are also on the main stage. Australia, England, South Africa, and India have already agreed to come to the main event, held in New Zealand, which will be the host.
Bangladesh, the West Indies, and Pakistan have secured the ICC Women’s Championship in the next round. Although the ban affects Bangladesh, the West Indies, and Pakistan, Bangladesh’s girls played well in the current World Cup qualifiers. Nigar Sultana Jyoti’s team started the event by defeating Pakistan. Then the United States lost by a considerable margin of 260 runs. However, in the third match, Bangladesh failed Thailand in the D/L method. After that, they were scheduled to play Zimbabwe in Monday’s fourth and final match. But before that came the announcement to postpone the meeting.
There were a total of three matches in the qualifying round. The Pakistan-Zimbabwe and United States-Thailand matches start on time. However, the Sri Lanka-West Indies match could not start. The game was called off after Corona was identified in the body of the Sri Lankan team’s support staff.
After the tournament was cancelled, the ICC said that due to the new variant of Corona, many countries had imposed travel restrictions on several African countries. Including Zimbabwe. So the meeting was cancelled to send the teams home before the situation got worse.
The ODI Women’s Cricket World Cup is scheduled to start on March 4 in New Zealand. The Bangladesh women’s cricket team left Dhaka on February 3 to play in the World Cup.
The BCB announced a 15-member squad for the World Cup campaign. Later, wicketkeeper-batsman Nuzhat Tasnia was included as a reserve in the World Cup. Tasnia, 25, has been named the second reserve player alongside Sanjida Akhtar. Fast bowler Jahanara Alam also got a chance in the team led by Nigar Sultana Jyoti. Earlier, the pacer was dropped from the Commonwealth Games qualifiers.
