The rise of Bangladesh cricket is one of the most fascinating stories of the cricketing world. While the unit faced a lot of massive defeats in the past, they finally went on to crack the code of winning. With this, they took down sides like India and Pakistan and also recorded impressive shows in the last two editions of the 50-over World Cup.
Having all that behind them, former Bangladesh coach Dav Whatmore has started to rate this team ahead of South Africa. The 65-year old is of the opinion that the Tigers contains a plethora of skills and ability to give tough time to India in the forthcoming T20I and Test series.
Highlighting Shakib Al Hasan’s all-round ability and Mustafizur Rahman’s deceiving bowling skills, Whatmore said that it would be a mistake to take Bangladesh lightly. Moreover, playing in various T20 leagues and getting familiar with conditions could also help the unit. The Sri Lanka born went on to predict that the series will be an interesting one. It remains to be seen how Bangladesh counters the Indian challenge.
