We were looking for this momentum : Nigar Sultana
CRICDOT DESK : Bangladesh did not have a good start in the Women’s World Cup. Nigar Sultana’s team lost the first match against South Africa by 32 runs on March 5 in Dunedin, New Zealand.
In the second match, the performance of the Tigers is absolutely chaotic. New Zealand beat Bangladesh by 9 wickets at home. After losing two matches, Bangladesh turned around this time. The Tigers made history by defeating Pakistan by 9 runs in Hamilton.
Nigar Sultana Jyoti, the captain of the Bangladesh team, is overjoyed after winning the first match in just the third match of the ODI World Cup. He does not know the language to express feelings after this victory.
“I can’t express this feeling in words,” Nigar said at the awards ceremony after the match. This is our first win in the World Cup. We have made history today. We want to capture this momentum in the matches ahead of the World Cup. We know the Pakistan team very well. I have played against them many times. It was a great experience in the last World Cup qualifier. We won that match in the last over. ‘
The Bangladesh captain hopes that the confidence of this victory will be used in the days to come. “Any victory gives a lot of confidence. This is the moment we were looking for. Our team is very good and always improving. We know we have the potential. “
