Bangladesh’s shambolic display in the ongoing 20-20 World Cup has surprised the onlookers of the game, considering the team had comprehensively beaten top sides like Australia and New Zealand in the build-up to the marquee event.

”There is a lot of talk regarding the wicket of Australia and New Zealand but one must remember that win was also important,” Habibul said on Saturday.
The problem for Bangladesh has been their batting. In the three losses so far, the teams have registered scores of 139, 124, and 171 against West Indies, England, and Sri Lanka respectively.
