Tigresses arrive in Dhaka today

Bangladesh national women’s team will arrive in Dhaka today following their successful ICC Women’s World Cup qualification campaign in Zimbabwe. The Tigresses, who secured their

maiden berth in the 50-over World Cup in New Zealand next year, are expected to arrive at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 08:45am and will undergo a mandatory quarantine on their arrival. The team earlier left Zimbabwe on Sunday for Namibia through a chartered flight arranged by the ICC after the tournament was called off due to the rise of the new Covid-19 Omicron variant in the African nations. They then went to Muskat, Oman from where they will arrive home today after

facing a few flight cancellation issues. Pakistan and West Indies are the other two teams alongside Bangladesh that will take part in the upcoming World Cup after the qualifiers were decided

according to the team rankings as detailed in the tournament playing conditions.
