In an attempt to bring the national players back in action, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has introduced ‘small group training’ as well as ‘individual training’ from Monday (August 31). Interestingly, only five women cricketers – batters Shamim Sultana and Sharmin Supta, pacer Jahanara Alam, Nahida Akhtar and Lata Mondol – have been chosen.

The players have started training at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) of the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS) at Mirpur. The BCB earlier appointed Jannatul Ferdaous Boishakhi as a trainer for women players.

BCB chief physician Dr Debashis Chowdhury expressed that the new small group training sessions are a part of the multi-phase training module to make players’ habituated with the condition. “We’ve embarked on our training with individual sessions and then introduced a small group training module. It’ll continue until next week,” he said.

Earlier, Bangladesh players were left frustrated following BCB's lack of attention to women’s cricket post-COVID-19 break.
