Preview:

India A Women will start their tour of Bangladesh on Friday as they face Bangladesh A Women in a 3-match One-Day series. This will be followed by a 3-match T20 series starting on 11th October. These two series will serve as a warm-up for the Indian team ahead of the ACC Emerging Women’s Asia Cup. The tournament will be hosted by Sri Lanka between October 20th and 28th.

Sheikh Kamal International Cricket Stadium in Cox’s Bazar will be hosting this One-Day series while the T20 series will be played in Zahur Ahmed Cricket Stadium. Bangladesh team is filled up with players who have experience of playing at the International level for quite a period. Most of the India side did make their International debut but couldn’t seal permanent places.


Weather Condition/Report:

Scattered thunderstorms with rain is expected in first half of Friday. The forecast suggests clear weather from 11 AM local time. The chances of a match rely on the amount of rainfall in the morning.

Pitch Condition/Report:

Cox’s Bazar has witnessed big scores and low totals at the same time. One of the reasons for it is the quality of opposition faced by Bangladesh Women. The stronger side used to post big scores and restrict the hosts to low totals. India A is marginally better than Bangladesh Women who have experience of playing at the highest level. Hence, we might see scores around 200 more often in this series.

Average first innings score: 171 (Women’s ODI since 2017)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 4, Lost – 2
