Women’s Asia Cup will start on October 1. Teams like Pakistan, Sri Lanka are now busy planning their strategy for the Asia Cup. However, Bangladesh, the current champion of the Asia Cup and the host team of this edition, have been busy with the T20 World Cup qualifiers.
Despite defeating Thailand to qualify for the World Cup, the Tigresses have not yet returned home. Because the final of the World Cup qualifiers will be against Ireland, another team that has confirmed the World Cup.
Before that, the former captain of the women's team and star all-rounder regretted the qualifying game. She said that they want to do well in this World Cup so that they don't have to play the qualifiers for the next edition.
Salma said, “I feel very happy. But we don't want to play T20 qualifiers. We’re playing qualifying games repeatedly. We wish to qualify directly for the next tournament, and not have to play qualifiers, not have to go through difficult matches. This time, we will try it in the World Cup hopefully.”
Bangladesh directly participated in the World Cup in 2014, as the host team. After that in 2015, 2018 and 2019, they had to play the qualifiers. Although they were runner-up in 2015, they finished as champions the last two times. The team will definitely try their best to become champions this time as well, which will give extra motivation to the defending Asia's best team ahead of the Asia Cup.
