After the conclusion of the T20I series, the teams will go head-to-head in a three-match ODI series. The ODIs will be played on December 11, 14 and 17. Notably, the ODI series is part of the current cycle of the ICC Women’s Championship.
The wicketkeeper-batter Nigar Sultana will be leading the side, which consists of four uncapped players – leg-spin all-rounder Rabeya Khatun, seam-bowling all-rounder Disha Biswas, wicketkeeper-batter Dilara Akhter and pacer Marufa Akter. The trio of Rabeya, Biswas and Dilara was also part of the Under-19 team that recently defeated Malaysia at home.
Also, Shamima Sultana, Sobhana Mostary and Shohely Akhter have failed to get a place in the squad and they have been dropped. The wicketkeeper-batter Shamima had scored only 50 runs in three matches in the Women’s Asia Cup 2022 and Mostary had scored only 27 runs in her last six T20I innings. Also, Shohely bagged just two wickets in two innings in the Women’s Asia Cup 2022.
