Nigar Sultana is very happy to have Jahanara back on the team
Despite the fact that the Bangladesh women’s team will be quarantined for ten days once they get in New Zealand, captain Nigar Sultana is delighted to have Jahanara Alam return in the squad for the 50-over World Cup.
Their match versus the Proteas will begin on March 1 at University Oval in Dunedin.
Jahanara’s membership in the ICC World Cup team was a matter of selection after she failed to qualify for the Commonwealth Games due to disciplinary issues.
Nigar commended Jahanara for being a veteran player and the team’s greatest pacer. So her presence is reassuring, and they can rely on her. She is always willing to assist me and the bowling team, which is the most crucial thing. I’m delighted to have her return to the group.
Her squad rehearsed in Malaysia, where the wickets were bouncy, especially the side wickets, since they wanted to be sure that everything they accomplished there would help them adjust in New Zealand. There are certain wind elements on the combat field, and this was also the case in the last match location; the result may not have favored them, but they have prepared well.
The Bangladesh women’s squad will be quarantined for ten days after landing in New Zealand, and will have a five-day training camp at the BCB National Cricket Academy from January 29 to February 4 before departing.
She stated that before the contest, her squad will train their skill set on the combat field.
They may have difficulty assimilating there, which will be a hardship.
She also talked on the game in New Zealand, adding that many of their male counterparts who have played there have shared their thoughts on the wickets, conditions, and the most difficult element of acclimating to those conditions.
According to Nigar, the most difficult obstacle would be adapting to the New Zealand conditions. Despite failing to qualify for the Commonwealth Games, they had a solid preparation for the global tournament in Malaysia.
She thinks they’ll be able to overcome the challenges since they have time on their hands. Before the event, they will play two official warm-up matches, and she feels they will be well prepared.
Bangladesh, according to Sultana, isn’t planning too far ahead. She stated that they would be playing in the World Cup for the first time, therefore they must be realistic in their expectations. They will play as a team match after match, and when they do, they will know what their genuine aim is.
