The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced the squad for the ICC Women's Cricket World Cup 2022 in New Zealand in March-April. The team will start its preparation camp at the BCB NCA on 29 January.
Fast bowler Jahanara Alam has returned to the squad after missing out on a spot in Bangladesh's squad for the qualifying tournament of the Commonwealth Games in Malaysia. Rumours were there that Jahanara did not feature in that tournament due to disciplinary issues.
