Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN)-Many South Africans won’t know much about the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah.
It used to be called the Narayanganj Osmani Stadium, where South Africa lost both games they played in the 2004 under-19 World Cup.
But if South Africa win next year’s World T20 in India, South Africans will know the journey to that destination began in Fatullah, reports Times Live.
South Africa’s tour of Bangladesh starts in Narayanganj on Friday in the shape of a warm-up match ahead of July 5 first T20 international at the Sher-e Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.
“The World Cup is a few months gone now so that’s behind us,” said JP Duminy.
“We know it’s a new season. We’ve got new goals as a team and as individual players, and we’ve got to make sure we stick to those goals and try and achieve them.”
The Proteas also want to have a good, long look at their player depth.
