DHAKA, Feb 6, 2020 (BSS) – Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina extended her
heartiest congratulation to the Bangladesh U19 cricket team for creating

in South Africa tonight.

“My heartiest congratulations to all of you (cricket team). I am very
happy that you have brought the honour to the country,” she said in a message
of greeting from the Italian city Milan as she is now on a four-day official
