Bangladesh was once referred to be a minnow by the cricket community, but recent performances have shown that the squad is prepared for the big stage. It contains a large number of skilled players that might provide difficulties for the title teams. Bangladesh has finally made it to the international scene and is prepared to create a name for itself in the next T20 world cup based on their performance against seasoned sides like Pakistan, India, and South Africa.
Bangladesh has taken part in the competition eight times between 2007 and 2022.
Bangladesh’s T20 World Cup performance
Bangladesh was put in group A for the 2007 competition together with South Africa and the West Indies. It defeated West Indies by 6 wickets but lost to South Africa by 8 wickets. Bangladesh lost all three of its games in the Super 8 stage against strong opponents including Pakistan, Australia, and Sri Lanka.
Bangladesh was grouped alongside Ireland and India in group A for the 2009 tournament. Both games were lost by 6 wickets and 25 runs, respectively, for the team.
Along with Pakistan and Australia, Bangladesh was assigned to one of the hardest groups in the 2010 West Indies World Cup. It was defeated in both games and was prevented from moving on.
Bangladesh competed with Pakistan and New Zealand in the 2012 tournament in Sri Lanka. Bangladesh suffered a 59-run loss at the hands of the Kiwis, while Pakistan fell by 8 wickets.
Bangladesh had to compete in the qualification round in 2014, when it narrowly lost to Hong Kong by two wickets while defeating Afghanistan by nine wickets and Nepal by eight. Due to a higher run rate, the team finished first in the standings, but in the super 10 stage, it was winless. 2014 didn’t turn out to be a miraculous cup for Bangladesh in terms of performance.
Bangladesh did not play well in their primary league matches at the most recent T20 world cup, as they failed to win a single game in their group and went winless overall.
Bangladesh may play very well in the forthcoming T20 world cup 2022 given their current team performance.
