Bangladesh national women’s football team captain Sabina Khatun and Under-16 captain Krisna Rani Sarker will play for Tamil Nadu in the forthcoming Hero Indian Women’s League, the top flight women’s football league in India.
The seven-team league is scheduled to kick-off on March 25.
Though this will be the second edition of the tournament, this will be first time a Bangladeshi player will compete for any team.
Striker Sabina had earlier traded her skills in Maldives but never played in any other foreign league.
‘It would be a great opportunity to show our ability in the Indian league,’ Sabina said at a press conference organised by the Bangladesh Football Federation in connection with their visit.
‘If we can perform well there [India] then next time Indian teams will show their interests to sign more Bangladeshi players.’
Unlike Sabina, this will be Krishna’s maiden appearance in a foreign league.
‘I’m so excited to play there [India],’ Krishna said.
‘We will try our best to show how our women’s football have improves in the last few years.’
