Bangladesh leave out Sharmin Sultana from World T20 squad

  • Print



There were no great surprises as Bangladesh Cricket Board announced their 15-member squad on Tuesday (October 9) for the upcoming Women's World T20. With the exception of Sharmin Sultana, who is out on standby, it's the same outfit that is recently hosted Pakistan for their four-match T20I series.
Experienced Salma Khatun will lead the squad comprised of all the players that helped them win their maiden Asia Cup title, followed by clinching the Women's World T20 Qualifiers in the Netherlands.
24-year-old Sharmin, who was part of every squad up until this one, had only got her chances in ODIs. Consequently, she has been named among four stand-bys."
Bangladesh will be banking on the experience of captain and all-rounder Khatun, along with the dependable spin duo of Rumana Ahmed and Nahida Akter in the bowling department, and the pair of Fargana Haq and Shamima Sultana in the batting department. These five cricketers, in particular, have been largely responsible for their superb run this year that sees them winning 12 out of 20 matches.
Bangladesh are placed in Group A where they will face the hosts West Indies in Providence on November 9. They will face England (Nov 12), Sri Lanka (Nov 14) and South Africa (Nov 18).

Bangladesh Women's Squad: Salma Khatun (capt.), Rumana Ahmed, Jahanara Alam, Fargana Haque, Khadija Tul Kubra, Fahima Khatun, Ayesha Rahman, Shamima Sultana (wk), Nahida Akter, Panna Ghosh, Ritu Moni, Sanjida Islam, Nigar Sultana, Lata Mondol, Sharmin Akter Supta.

Stand-by: Sharmin Sultana, Surya Azmin, Shaila Sharmin, Sultana Khatun.
