Women's World Cup Bangladesh
Bangladesh won three of their last four matches against Pakistan in 50 overs.

The twelfth World Cup in women's one-day format has just started on New Zealand soil.

This is the first time Bangladesh is playing in the Women's World Cup in ODI format.

The Bangladesh women's national cricket team has never toured New Zealand to play cricket before.

Faria Ulfat Syed, who follows Bangladesh women's cricket, told that she expects Bangladesh to win at least two matches.

Former Bangladesh women's cricketer and current commentator Sathira Zakir Jessi is also optimistic about the women's team.

"As many are saying, the participation of Bangladesh women's team in this World Cup is a big deal. I don't think so."

According to her, it will not be difficult to win matches in the tournament even if Bangladesh plays as they did in the warm-up match against Pakistan.

Jahanara Alam, Salma Khatun, and Rumana Ahmed of the Bangladesh women's cricket team have been playing together for a long time.

So we will keep an eye on these cricketers and at the same time young cricketers can also play a big role this time, says Sajjad Khan, a regular observer of the women's cricket team.

Mr. Khan thinks, "This is our first World Cup, so the pressure on the girls in Bangladesh is less."

He also said that at least Bangladesh should win against Pakistan.

Bangladesh won three of their last four matches against Pakistan in 50 over cricket.

Sajjad Khan thinks that Bangladesh's experience of playing regularly against South Africa will also give the team extra motivation.

Murshida Khatun, Farzana Haque Pinki, Sharmin Supta, Nigar Sultana Jyoti are in the batting lineup.

Rumana is also one of the top batter in Bangladesh. Rumana Ahmed is the highest run-scorer of Bangladesh in ODI cricket.

Rumana will be the first woman cricketer to score 1000 runs for Bangladesh if she scores 108 runs.

Farzana Haque Pinky has hit the highest half-century for Bangladesh - seven.

However, in terms of strike rate, Bangladesh women cricketers are far behind in world standards.

As an all-rounder, Rumana is also Bangladesh's highest run-getter and wicket-taker in the ODI format.

Also, in bowling, Jahanara Alam owns 36 ODI wickets, and Salma Khatun has taken 41 wickets.

However, he described the five teams - England, Australia, New Zealand, India, and the West Indies - as "strong opponents".

Because Bangladesh women's cricket team has never played ODI cricket against Australia, England, and New Zealand before.

However, in his analysis, Sajjad Khan cites women's team can be inspired by the 1999 Men's Cricket World Cup, Bangladesh had beaten up teams like Pakistan, and the women's cricket team can do the same.

According to Shathira Jakir Jessy, this time the Bangladesh team is youth dependent, so these youngsters will also play a big role outside of certain cricketers.

Jesse especially mentioned Murshida Khatun and Sharmin Akhter Supta.

Supta had come to the discussion a few days ago after scoring a century.

Nahida Akhtar is playing great in international cricket.

Fellow Sathira Jakir Jesse mentioned two to keep an eye on, especially Fariha and Trisha.

"Fariha is kind of player like Mustafiz, She has taken three wickets in the warm-up match against Pakistan."

Many analysts are praising Nigar Sultana's leadership.
