BCB to dive deep to inspect into tigress’ World Cup failure

Sports Reporter, Dhaka

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has said that it would conduct a clinical review of the national women cricket team’s poor ICC T20 World Cup outcomes, staged earlier this year (in between February-March). The Tigresses led by Salma Khatun although reached Australia two weeks before the kick-off of the main event having an eye to win at least one or two matches, returned home with an agony after they could not manage even a single win from their four Group-A matches.

The BCB, expressing disappointment over the Tigresses’ below-par World-Cup performance, reiterated that they would look into the issue after the ongoing coronavirus outbreak that stopped all cricketing and BCB activities until further notice. “We would have expected to sit earlier to find out the reason of our World Cup disaster which we couldn’t do because of the coronavirus outbreak. But we will certainly sit to examine the poor performance of the team once everything gets normal,” said BCB women’s wing chairman Shafiul Alam Chowdhury.

In the meantime, comparing the Tigresses’ underrated World Cup show to their previous performance when they had done well playing some good cricket and winning the quadrangular series in India prior to the World Cup, also raised speculations on the BCB and they are trying to figure out whether ‘grouping’ that came under media scanner few years ago, largely affected the team’s performance.

“There are definitely some problems. The grouping that had declined in the recent past appeared again and I think it is one the main reasons too,” said a close BCB source. As per report it is believed that grouping between two senior cricketers in the team made a big impact on the team’s performance.

Again, according to BCB insiders it is also learned that the relationship between Tigresses’ head Anju Jain and skipper Slama Khatun wasn’t going all right as the latter expressed frustration with some of the coach’s decisions during the World Cup.
