Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is planning to resume women’s cricket by hosting a tournament in December, said BCB officials on Thursday.
The format of the tournament is yet to be finalised but BCB Women’s Wing Chairman Nadel Chowdhury stated that it can be considered as part of their resumption plan for women’s cricket which is halted since the coronavirus outbreak.“We will host a tournament with our women cricketers in December. We are yet to finalise the format but we will certainly host it as this is how we want to resume women’s cricket,” BCB Women’s Wing Chairman Nadel Chowdhury told reporters on Tuesday.
“We might host it with divisional teams as clubs might not be ready to come forward,” he said adding that they are expecting their new head coach to be available before the tournament.
Bangladesh is yet to finalise their head coach for women’s team after the post went vacant following the resignation of Anju Jain.
“We are expecting to confirm a head coach before the tournament as that will allow the coach to see the cricketers in action,” said Nadel.
“Due to the pandemic no one wants to travel to another country and take up a job but we are not interested to pick just any one who approaches us through WhatsApp and video,” he concluded.
