Who is Bangladesh’s opponent in the group, it was already decided. The schedule of T20 World Cup has also been confirmed today. Bangladesh will have to play the first round as they are out of the eighth position at a given time in the rankings. Team captain Mahmudullah sees all-rounders as a big source of strength in the World Cup.
Bangladesh had to play the first episode in the last two editions of the T20 World Cup. Bangladesh went to the second round twice but lost all the matches in the next round. This is the first time that Bangladesh has lost to Australia on home soil before the T20 World Cup. Then comes New Zealand.
In a video message to the ICC, Mahmudullah said, “You have to play the best cricket in the World Cup from the very beginning. All matches are equally important in a tournament like the T20 World Cup or any other tournament.” You have to play the best cricket from the first ball in every match. You have to have a strong focus so that you can win every match. ‘
The Bangladesh captain sees all-rounders as the biggest source of his strength. “Our all-rounders are the source of our strength,” Mahmudullah said. Our bowling department, Our batting is also good. All in all, our team is balanced in terms of bowling and batting. Our bowlers, especially the fast bowlers, are doing great. And we have spinners. If they can come forward, we hope our results will be good. ‘
Naturally, Mahmudullah named Shakib Al Hasan as the biggest weapon of the team, “If you want to name a few, I will talk about Shakib. He is the number one all-rounder. He is our most important cricketer. At the same time there is Mushfiqur, Mostafiz. They are also very important. ‘
But he also said to keep an eye on the youngsters, “We have some great young cricketers – Afif, Nurul, Shamim. They are also interested in doing good for themselves, for the team. I think we have to keep an eye on these young people. ‘
Bangladesh’s first match in the first round is against Scotland on 17 October. The next two matches are against Oman and Papua New Guinea. In the first phase, all the matches of Bangladesh will be played in Oman. From the first round, the top two teams from each group will advance to the next round.
