Bangladesh’s newly appointed ODI skipper Nigar Sultana Joty is unlikely to take part in the three-match ODI series opener against Zimbabwe today due to finger and thumb injuries.
A member of the team management confirmed the development to The Daily Sun adding that they are not ready to take any chance with Nigar considering she is an integral part of their set-up in the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier 2021.
Nuzhat Tasnia is expected to keep wickets for Tigresses in the series opener in Bulawayo.
Ahead of the match, the Tigresses took part in a practice session in Bulawayo on Tuesday. There is also a good chance of rain in today’s encounter.
Bangladesh women’s team last played a WODI back in November 2019 against Pakistan. The remaining two games are scheduled on November 13 and 15 respectively.
