Bangladesh Cricket team Preview

This was a World Cup to forget for Bangladesh.

After starting the campaign with a win against Bangladesh, they have lost five matches in a row. In their previous match, they were bowled out for just 142 while chasing a target of 230 against the Netherlands at Eden Gardens. That loss has now pushed Bangladesh to 9th position in the rankings with a miserable net run rate of -1,338. They still have 3 more matches to finish the tournament on a high but it will be difficult for them to bounce back from this low.

Bangladesh’s batting has not been successful. A lot was expected from the likes of Litton Das, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim and captain Shakib Al Hasan, but they failed to step up in the crucial moments.

Shakib will be desperate to leave a mark after a string of failures. His average of 43.28 against Pakistan in the ODIs will probably give him the confidence to finally break the shackles.

Mahmudullah is their most consistent batsman and the only one to score 100 in this tournament for Bangladesh. However, he batted too low in the order and was often hit with the tail.

Among the bowlers, Shoriful Islam (8 wickets in 6 innings at an economy rate of 6.50) has stood out. However, it was the cameramen who were steadfast. Shakib Al Hasan (7 wickets), Mehidy Hasan Miraz (6 wickets) and Mahedi Hasan (6 wickets) all did an excellent job. They kept things tight and often trapped their opponents. On this pitch, these three spinners, along with Mustafizur Rahman, will be quite tough against the Pakistan batting unit.

PAK vs BAN Prediction

There have been only two ODI World Cup encounters between Pakistan vs Bangladesh: Bangla Tigers won the 1999 World Cup clash, while Pakistan won in 2019. Most recently, Pakistan defeated Bangladesh by 7 goal in the Asia Cup in September.

Although Pakistan may have lost four matches in a row, they are still a truly dangerous team on their day. We saw traces of it in the match against South Africa. They will be outright favorites against a struggling Bangladesh. Bangladesh looked completely out of place and did not inspire any confidence. The loss to the Netherlands will further dampen their confidence and they will need to do their best to overcome Pakistan. We think this will be an easy win for Pakistan.
