The women's cricketers thanked the Bangladesh government and the cricket board for the vaccine. Jahanara Alam shared a picture of taking the vaccine on social media Facebook and wrote, “Alhamdulillah! I am grateful to Almighty God. Today I took the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. Thanks to BCB and Bangladesh government". "I'm not afraid of vaccines, I'm afraid of needles," she joked.
