“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the ICC Board on behalf of the BCB for choosing Bangladesh to host this important women’s event at a time when the women’s game is thriving and growing.
The event will encourage young girls and aspiring female cricketers to dream big, making it especially significant for women’s cricket in Bangladesh.
“Our women have steadily advanced in the game of cricket internationally, and this global championship being held at home will be the perfect chance to prove that we can compete with the best.”
I am confident that we will hold a world-class tournament in 2024 because Bangladesh has a rich history of staging prestigious ICC events, he added.
