The Bangladesh Cricket Board on Monday announced that the Asia Cup winning Bangladesh women's cricket team will be awarded Tk 20 million for their historic achievement.
The declaration came at a press conference following an Iftar hosted by the BCB at a city hotel. The Tigresses were also accorded a reception there as they were brought to the hotel straight from the airport on their arrival from Malaysia.
In Sunday's final, Bangladesh defeated six-time champions India in a nail-biting thriller to lift the Asia Cup trophy for the first time. The champions had defeated both India and Pakistan in the group stages as well.
