Bangladesh Women's head coach Anju Jain urged BCB to introduce age-based women cricket in Bangladesh to procure raw talent for the national side.
Bangladesh Men's team has age-based set up but there is no age-based cricket team for the women's side. Bangladesh women also play just the ODI format in the domestic league. Although BCB is working on including the longer format in the domestic league, Jain believes its important that BCB includes more formats and introduce age-based group for the betterment of Women cricket.
"we would like to have more matches, more games, and more formats. and why not age group? I think it's very important to have age group tournament. because that's how you try to groom the bench strength. Its a cycle, if you start getting them into the age group then you will get them into the higher-level group and then the national side," Anju said before leaving to South Africa with the women emerging team.
"It's important to start that age group and all the formats. it should not be only one format that they play in the domestic league. there should be more formats like T20 and longer format, I think. I think BCB already working on the longer format. but yes we have to have age group as well," added Anju.
Women cricket of Bangladesh are really improving day by day.They are currently the ninth-ranked ODI team in the World. They have won the Asia Cup and some of the Bangladeshi players also play in the foreign franchise league. Khadija tul Kubra and Rumana Ahmed played in the Big Bash League
Anju believes people are more interested in the Bangladesh women cricket.people follow women's cricket now so its high time to give more importance to the Women's cricket.
"People are started noticing the Bangladesh Women's team, how they have been doing. they are following their performances. Three of the girls are getting chances in the leagues as well. like Big Bash, IPL and KIA. Now, this is the time to focus on Women's cricket," concluded Anju.
