Dhaka, 1 November 2023: Pakistan women’s team arrived in Dhaka on 30 October following the conclusion of the T20I series in Chattogram. Since their arrival in the capital city of Bangladesh, Pakistan have undergone two training sessions at the Shere Bangla National Stadium on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The touring side will take on the hosts in the three-match ODI series commencing on 4 November at the Shere Bangla National Stadium. The second and third ODI will be played on 7 and 10 November, respectively. These ODIs are part of the ICC Women’s Championship 2022-25, where Pakistan are currently placed on the sixth spot, winning six matches from 12 outings. Before the ODI series, Pakistan women's team will play a one-day match against BCB XI tomorrow at the same venue to test their skills.

Speaking to PCB Digital on the sidelines of the training session in Dhaka, bowling coach and chief selector Saleem Jaffar sounded hopeful of Pakistan's prospects in the ODI series. He said, “It is unfortunate that we lost the T20I series, but the upcoming ODI series is very important. These ODI matches are part of the ICC Women’s Championship and earning six points from the three-match series will help us qualify for the ICC Women’s World Cup.

“We are working on target bowling with the bowlers to meet the game’s requirements and the conditions here.

“Nashra Sundhu and Sadia Iqbal have put significant effort into improving their bowling over the last two years. Their rise in the ICC rankings is inspiring, and it has motivated other bowlers to excel. I have spoken to both Nashra and Sadia, and they both have expressed their desire to put in even more effort and achieve greater success, which is very satisfying to see.”
