Bangladesh cricket team’s history in the ICC tournaments
Bangladesh hasn’t been up to the mark in the ICC tournaments over the years. Whether it is a T20 format or an ODI format, their ICC records haven’t been up to their standard. They have grown massively over the years in world cricket except for ICC tournaments.
Bangladesh cricket team hasn’t won any ICC title yet, whether in the T20 format or an ODI format. If we talk about the last ICC ODI WC 2023, they finished at No. 8 in the points table with only 2 wins in 9 games.
In the last ICC T20 World Cup in 2022, they finished at No. 4 in their group and didn’t qualify for the top 4. Now, they will look to rectify themselves in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024.
Why Bangladesh cricket hasn’t conquered ICC events?
We have talked about it before as well. Despite growing as a cricketing nation over the years, still a lot of work has to be done. They played most of their cricket on spinning/slowish wickets at home. So when they go out to play in those conditions that are alien to them, they struggle. Also, in T20Is, they didn’t have any big hitters or you can say hard hitters in the team. They also lack out-and-out pacers who can restrict runs in the end consistently.
Whatever, we will talk about all this in detail later. The conclusion is ICC has already announced the fixtures of the ICC World T20 2024. Bridgetown, Barbados, and Kensington Oval will host the tournament’s final on June 29. A total of 9 venues (6 in the West Indies and 3 in the USA) have been decided for the tournament. Let’s see who will win the title this time. What are your predictions? Comment down below.
