Jahanara Alam left the country for Dubai on Wednesday morning to play in the women's IPL. Jahanara played for Velocity in the last edition. She will play in that team again this time. In a video message on Tuesday before joining the team, Jahanara and Salma shared their IPL thoughts and goals. Their goal is to brighten the name of the country with the best performance.

Jahanara Alam, who is going to play in IPL for the second time, said, I am going to play in IPL. I am very happy to have the opportunity to play for Velocity again. This time I will try to use the experience of the last time. However, I will try to contribute to win the team with my best.

Regarding her own preparation, she said, "Alhamdulillah, the preparation is very good." The opportunities that the BCB has given us in the current situation, especially with the IPL in front of us. I hope I can do something good in the main match of IPL InshaAllah.

"The IPL is a big platform, I don't think everyone has the good fortune to play here," she added. I am very lucky in this regard. Such platforms are an opportunity to compete with many of the world's best, world champions. There is an opportunity to share the dressing room with them. I hope I can gain this experience from there and come to the country and share it with my teammates. I believe I will go a few steps further in my career after playing this tournament.

Jahanara said with her own goal, she came on the field with a goal, she has to play well with her best. Last time, she said “We could not even be on the verge of becoming champions. I also have my own regrets, the final over of the final match. If I fall into such a situation again, I will try my best to contribute to win the team.

The women's IPL will be held in the United Arab Emirates early next month. Before the start of the tournament, all the cricketers of the three teams will be kept in a bio-security bubble at a hotel in Dubai. The three matches of the first round will be played on November 4, 5, and 6, respectively. The final of this four-match tournament is on November 9.
