“I think because of that knowledge and that experience, especially from the WPL, the Delhi wicket in particular was a bit low and a bit slow which traditionally doesn’t suit Australian batting line-ups. I think There’s a lot of experience and especially enough communication within our group to make sure we’re adapting to those conditions and being able to score runs even when they don’t suit us,” Healy said.

“The nature of modern cricket is that you are constantly moving from one tournament to international cricket, and vice versa. So I would say to an extent, there is a certain degree of benefit in playing cricket. What will be the conditions like we get tomorrow? We’ll have to figure it out ourselves. All I know is that the girls are really excited to be here in Bangladesh. For most, it’s the first time and they get a chance to play against a Bangladesh team that is away from the World Cup. “That’s a very rare thing for us. So it’s an exciting opportunity for our group,” she said.

Healy said Australia’s batting unit would need to counter spin and get over the spinners early as a defensive approach would not help them much. “Our batting unit has to counter that [spin] and adapt really quickly to the conditions. Adapt to what they’re going to throw at us with the ball in hand. So that’s exciting for us .We play against teams like India a lot.” England and New Zealand. Actually we don’t get a chance to play against Bangladesh very often. We get to experience new situations and opposition. I think the group is in a great place to meet that challenge,” Healy said.

“I think if you look at their team as a whole, they have a lot of skill especially in their bowling attack. I think there’s a lot of spin which is quite noticeable and obviously outside the subcontinent A real challenge for India’s teams. I’m probably not going to mention some names specifically, but I think overall their bowling unit is their real strength. The recent series played against India and Looking at these conditions, they have made it really challenging to match the aggression of that Indian batting order.


“I think Bangladesh are a real threat to a lot of teams, especially in the ODI Women’s Championship. They have fought their way into this and now they have got the chance to play against the top countries in the world, which I think is a big boost to our game.” It’s great to be able to grow it and grow it around the world.”

Meanwhile, Bangladesh captain Nigar Sultana is hopeful that after the thrilling drawn series against India on home ground, her team will give a tough competition to the very dominant team of Australia. “Definitely I think it (mentality) has changed in everyone. India are such a team, that if you perform against them, you are in the focus in world cricket. I would say it was a positive for us. “

“People now know who Marufa [Aktar] is or who Nahida [Aktar] is. Recently Nahida has bowled brilliantly and was in the ODI team of the year. So individually, the players are coming into focus. So I would say the series helped us change and our popularity increased.

“When we were playing against India, the questions from journalists were very different. You asked whether we can win or not. I think it is a huge success for my team that you are not asking me these questions. This time the questions are about winning and performing better. I think it is a kind of success. We really want to do well against Australia. They are a dominant team.

They have to face the challenges of their men’s team. Get equal facilities. We are still far from that, but BCB is trying. This time they got us a team sponsor.
