Bangladesh and Pakistan women’s cricket team will get their last chance to tune-up before the ICC Women’s Twenty20 World Cup when they face each other in their second and final official warm-up match in Brisbane today. Both Bangladesh and Pakistan women’s cricket team’s preparations were hit by rain earlier when their first official warm-up match against debutant Thailand and India were washed out without a ball being bowled on Saturday. Bangladesh were pitted in Group A alongside hosts Australia, India, New Zealand and Sri Lanka. Though the World Cup gets underway on Friday in Sydney, Bangladesh begin their campaign against India two days later in Perth on February 24.   Bangladesh failed to win a single match in their previous Twenty20 World Cup campaign in West Indies but took a long preparation this time, which included a conditioning camp in Australia’s tourism hub Gold Coast. Bangladesh women’s team reached Gold Coast on February 3 and played two practice matches against a local club where they won one game while the other match was rained off.
