Bangladesh have started their World Cup campaign with a resounding victory over the Proteas as they downed them by 21 runs in London. The Bengal Tigers have sent out a clear message to other teams as they mean business this time.
However, the Bengali captain, Mashrafe Mortaza, has rued the absence of spin on the pitches prepared for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 by the International Cricket Council (ICC) as the slow bowlers have not been able to extract anything from the tracks.
The right-arm pacer has also said that his side has a point to prove in this year’s mega event as they want to play fearless cricket and prove themselves good enough against all the top sides in the world.
After their opening encounter in the tournament, Bangladesh would pose a serious challenge to other sides as they are high on confidence and are determined to do well this year.
