The Bangladesh female football team won the Saff U-18 this October and the Bangladesh female team became the group champion in the AFC U-16 group stage last month. The Bangladesh female cricket team also made history by beating India in the Women's Asia Cup T20 2018 final in Kuala Lumpur this year. This is the first time Bangladesh has won this cricket trophy in Asia, which the Bangladesh male cricket team is yet to achieve. The Australian High Commission’s Chargé de ’Affairs, Penny Morton, said the global scenario is that male players always have better exposure than women who consequently get fewer sponsorship opportunities. She urged the media to provide greater exposure to the success of girls in sports so they gain more attention and proper sponsorship.
