Tigresses face Pakistan in first warm-up today

Bangladesh national women’s team will take on their Pakistani counterparts in the first of two warm-up games ahead of the upcoming ICC Women’s T20 World Cup at Western Province Cricket Club in Cape Town, South Africa today.

The match is scheduled to start at 06:30pm (BST). The Tigresses earlier arrived in South Africa on January 24 to compete in the 10-team event.

Bangladesh are also scheduled to play against their Indian counterparts in their second warm-up game at Stellenbosch University 1 in Stellenbosch on Wednesday.

Bangladesh, who are in Group A alongside Sri Lanka, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, will begin their World Cup campaign against Sri Lanka on February 12.

Bangladesh, who won two games in the 2014 edition of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup, played a total of 12 matches in the next three T20 World Cup events (in 2016, 2018 and 2020 editions) but they always ended on the losing side.
