has returned to the Bangladesh women’s side for their tour of South Africa in December after missing out on the recent series against Pakistan. The Bangladesh Cricket Board has selected a 16-member squad that will play three T20Is and as many ODIs, with the one-dayers part of the ICC Women’s Championship cycle 2022-2025.
Bangladesh begin the tour with the T20I in Benoni on December 3, followed by two T20Is in Kimberley on December 6 and 8, respectively. The ODIs will be played in East London, Potchefstroom and Benoni between December 16 and 23.
