Bangladesh Women’s team spent a busy day in Brisbane on Friday as they went under International Cricket Council’s jurisdiction ahead of the Women’s Twenty20 World Cup, scheduled on February 21 to March 8.

Bangladesh, who are in Group A alongside hosts Australia, India, New Zealand and Sri Lanka, held a conditioning camp earlier in Australia’s tourism hub Gold Coast.  

The Bangladesh team were welcomed by Stirling Hinchliffe, Australian minister for local government, racing and multicultural affairs, Bangladesh council general Khandker Masudul Alam, Twenty20 World Cup chief executive Nick Hockley and Twenty20 World Cup director Belinda Clark.

On the first day in Brisbane, the team attended official tournament briefing, technical meeting, medical workshop, integrity and medical education session among others.

Local Bangladesh community also hosted a reception for the Salma Khatun led side. The team will hold its first formal training session at Brisbane’s Gabba today.
