Bangladesh participate in the International Cricket Council Cricket World Cup 2015 as a team with an outside opportunity of defeating the big named players, while having the weapons to beat the others. Bangladesh team cannot be considered as main contender to take the World Cup even though they can beat the best of teams on their day. In their most recent One Day International (ODI) series they gave Zimbabwe a 5-0 loss.

This ODI series with Zimbabwe could give them confidence and motivation but will also give an incorrect sense of power as Zimbabwe themselves are a very weak teams. The Bangladesh team is packed with youngsters bubbling with skills but it is unlikely if they will pass it beyond the quarter finals at best.

Bangladesh squad for ICC World Cup 2015: Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, Mominul Haque, Anamul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman, Nasir Hossain, Soumya Sarkar, Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Taijul Islam, Al-Amin Hossain, and Arafat Sunny.

Key player:

Shakib Al Hasan: Shakib is the world’s top-ranked all-rounder in all formats of the match. The top all-rounder left handed batsman and left-arm spinner has been the squad’s centrepiece ever since his international debut 8 years back. He is participating into his 3rd World Cup as Bangladesh’s star cricketer with 3,977 runs and 182 wickets from 141 ODI.

He got a taste of Australian state recently while playing in the Big Bash T-20 competition, the lone Bangladeshi in the competition. His power lies in his aggressive batting consistently and correct bowling even on dead grounds and.
