Bangladesh participated in the Asia Cup with the hope of playing the final but riding on five consecutive victories, the side bagged the championship

State Minister for Youth and Sports Biren Sikder declared his intention of opening a national cricket academy, dedicated to the women's side, while felicitating the Bangladesh women’s cricket team Monday. The Tigresses returned home Monday evening after defeating six-time Asia Cup champion India by three-wickets at Kinrara Oval in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Sunday to clinch the six-nation regional tournament.

Bangladesh women cricketers upon reaching Dhaka were directly taken to the felicitation programme held at a local hotel in Dhaka.

“The girls have made us proud by winning the Asia Cup for the country. The achievement is historic. The Bangladesh government has already done enough for the betterment of women in sports. On this proud day I would like to inform that the Sports Ministry with its own fund will develop a cricket academy dedicated to the women. The BCB will run the academy,” said Biren to the media Monday.

“(Monday), the programme has been arranged by the BCB but we should have another felicitation programme for the women’s team with the presence of the honourable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina once she returns to the country. The BCB has already announced bonus (of Tk2 crores) for the team but the government has its own plan to reward the girls. It shall be done during the felicitation programme arranged by the ministry,” the State Minister added.
