India Women’s Five Match T20I Tour of Bangladesh Starts April 28

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced that India will embark on a T20I series tour to Bangladesh, commencing on April 28. The tour will consist of five matches, all scheduled to take place in Sylhet. India Women’s team is set to engage in this exciting series, offering fans a thrilling cricketing spectacle. The series promises to be an exhilarating contest between the two teams, providing an opportunity for both sides to showcase their skills and compete for victory.

Match Pattern:

Three of the five matches in the upcoming T20I series between India and Bangladesh Women will be day-night fixtures, hosted at the main Sylhet International Cricket Stadium. The remaining two matches will be daytime encounters held at an outer venue. This series holds significant importance as both teams gear up for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2024, scheduled to take place in Bangladesh later this year.

It provides a valuable opportunity for the teams to fine-tune their skills, strategies, and team dynamics ahead of the prestigious tournament. With the matches set to be played in varied conditions and timings, the series will serve as an ideal platform for the players to adapt and excel, enhancing their readiness for the global event.

India’s Previous Tour of Bangladesh:

India is embarking on their second tour of Bangladesh in two years, marking their third overall visit. In the previous tour in 2023, India participated in a series comprising three T20Is and an equal number of ODIs. They clinched the T20I series 2-1, while the ODI series concluded in a 1-1 draw.

However, the tour ended on a contentious note when India captain Harmanpreet Kaur expressed dissatisfaction with the umpiring decisions following the tied third ODI. In a display of frustration, Harmanpreet aggressively struck the stumps with her bat after being given out caught behind. She later criticized the umpiring standards as “pathetic” during the post-match presentation, highlighting the tensions that arose during the series.

She had said, “The next time whenever we are coming to Bangladesh, we’ll have to make sure we have to deal with this kind of umpiring and accordingly, we’ll have to prepare ourselves.”

India’s vice-captain, Smriti Mandhana, expressed her desire for neutral umpires for the upcoming tour, emphasizing the need for impartial officiating to ensure fairness and eliminate potential controversies during matches.

Match Fixtures:

The Indian team is scheduled to land in Bangladesh on April 23 to kickstart their tour. The series comprises five T20Is, with the first match set to take place on April 28 under lights. Subsequently, the second T20I is scheduled for April 30 in the evening. The third T20I will be a day game on May 2, followed by another daytime encounter on May 6 for the fourth T20I. The series will conclude with the fifth T20I, scheduled for May 9 in the evening.
