The Bangladesh women's cricket team take on their South African counterpart in the first ODI of the five-match series scheduled to be held today at Sheikh Kamal International Cricket Stadium in Cox's Bazar.
The match kicks off at 9.30 am.
All the remaining matches of the series will be held on January 14, 16, 18 and 20 at the same venue. The tour forms part of a bilateral agreement between CSA and the Bangladesh Cricket Board that will see the Tigress tour South Africa in February 2018.
Team coach, Hilton Moreeng believes that this series will help them to get acclimatize to this sub continent as the forthcoming ICC Women's World Cup Qualifier tournament which is scheduled to be held in Sri Lanka next month.
South Africa coach disclosed that they have come in Bangladesh with full strength and would like to see how her team performed in this region as his squad had no international cricket for almost a month. "It's an important tour this, because it's the only bit of preparation against an international side that we will have before we get to the World Cup Qualifiers," he said.
"This team is fresh and ready to take every challenge with advent of New Year. The preparation is going well thus far and we are looking forward to improving on our shortfalls when we take on Bangladesh on their home soil. We are not going to under estimate our host as we know they can be a tricky team to beat in their own back yard."
Moreeng was confident that captain, Dan, van Niekerk and Marizanne Kapp will continue to play their part as they are coming fresh from the Women's Big Bash League in Australia. "They are two of our senior players and we expect big things from them considering how well they have been playing in the Big Bash," Moreeng continued.
"That experience and exposure against some of the world's most talented players is going to be vital going into the Bangladesh series, the Qualifiers and further." The team also sees the return of veteran seam bowler, Marcia Matshipi Letsoalo, who is excited to have worked her way back into the squad.
"It's exciting to be back here. I've been working really hard on my game to make sure that I get another opportunity to play for the national team and I'm glad to have made it happen," she said. Moreeng is satisfied with the balance of the team and believes they have what it takes to be successful in Cox's Bazar.
"I'm happy with the squad that has been selected. This group has been together for a while now and is aware of the role each player has to play in order to make us a success. It's also good to have an experience campaigner like Marcia (Letsoalo) who adds a lot of value to the squad."
Bangladesh eve team squad - Rumana Ahmed, Jahanara Alam, Sanjida Islam, Sharmin Sultana, Sharmin Akter, Fargana Hoque, Nigar Sultana, Khadija Tul Kobra, Ritu Moni, Salma Khatun, Shaila Sharmin, Nahida Akter, Panna Ghosh, Suraya Azmin, Lata Mondal and Nuzhat TasniaTumpa (wicket keeper).
Proteas squad to Bangladesh: Dan, van Niekerk (captain, Eastern Province), Sun, Luus (Northerns), Mignon du Preez (Northerns), Moseline Daniels (Boland), Marizanne Kapp (Eastern Province), Marcia Matshipi Letsoalo (Northerns), Odine Kirsten (Northerns), Lizelle Lee (North West), Andrie Steyn (Western Province), Yolani Fourie (Gauteng), Ayabonga Khaka (Border), Chloe Tryon (KwaZulu-Natal), Sinalo Jafta (North West), Lara Goodall (Western Province).
