Gone are those days when Bangladesh was counted among those teams who are considered the soft opponents. From the 2015 World Cup, the side has shown immense improvement with which they played the quarter-final and the semi-final of the two major International Cricket Council (ICC) 50-over tournaments.
Bangladesh’s veteran all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is sitting quite optimistic about his team’s chances in the forthcoming mega-event which is scheduled to be hosted by England and Wales. The wily cricketer believes that his side is carrying massive experience along with a pool of incredibly talented young crop of cricketers which would aid them to do well in the crunch moments.
Highlighting the weaknesses of the squad, the 32-year old player admitted the areas of concerns. But, the Jessore born is still confident of putting up a great show. Keeping in view the longevity of the tournament, Shakib urged his teammates to adopt consistency as the format adopted for this year’s World Cup tournament is extremely demanding.
