Women cricketers get frustrated at lack of training
|| Desk Report ||
Bangladesh Cricket Board is yet to take a decision on when to start the women cricketers’ training in forced COVID-19 break which has frustrated the female cricketers as they are still unsure when they could join their male counterparts at the training ground and resume cricketing activities.
Bangladesh Cricket Board has opened four stadia for men’s national team to train individually last month but the same opportunity was not given to the women’s team players.
Bangladesh all-rounder Rumana Ahmed shared her fear about the current stagnant phase of women’s cricket that might increase their gap with men’s cricket even further.
‘Talks of men’s team's tour for Sri Lanka is on, even their training might start in coming days. When we asked the officials [about training], they used to say after Eid. We are not getting any clear indication about how our activities will resume,’ Rumana told a leading English daily newspaper.
Rumana already started individual training earlier at the Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna even before the men cricketers.
“I started Individual training before them [men’s cricketers]. I did it early in the morning. I used to finish my routine before their time-slot. I also brought home some gym equipment for weight training,’ said Rumana.
BCB women’s wing in charge Towhid Mahmood told New Age that they have plans of starting the individual training of cricketers soon but he couldn’t give much hope about resuming international cricket.
‘In England, men’s cricket has begun. We have to wait and see. Every time things are getting pushed back by a month, so it’s very hard to say,’ Towhid said.
