Bangladesh Want To Go To 2021 T20I World Cup With Confidence: Shakib Al Hasan

Shakib Al Hasan believes Bangladesh has more than enough time to prepare for the T20 World Cup, and that the team will head to the upcoming tournament in UAE and Oman having built a “winning mentality” following recent series victories against Australia and New Zealand.
Bangladesh will arrive in Muscat at least two weeks ahead of their first match, while Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman will be playing the IPL’s UAE phase, which Shakib Al Hasan feels will help him collect intelligence for the team. Bangladesh is in preliminary Group B with Scotland, Papua New Guinea, and Oman for the tournament that begins on October 17 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Shakib Al Hasan: Since Bangladesh Will Be In Oman At Least 15-16 Days Before T20I WC, Players Will Have Enough Time To Acclimatize

Bangladesh named all the players who completed a series win over New Zealand in their squad for next month’s Twenty20 World Cup. Mahmudullah Riyad will lead the side that took a 3-1 lead in the New Zealand series on Wednesday with one match still to play.
Bangladesh, with a mix of established performers and rising new stars, have fielded an unchanged side for the first four matches against New Zealand. Mohammad Naim and Liton Das retained their places as openers in the World Cup squad after established opener Tamim Iqbal declared himself unavailable.

“I am hopeful that the IPL will help everyone,” Shakib said. “We will be spending time in those conditions, play matches too. Mustafiz and I can share the experience with the rest of the team. We will understand the other players’ mindset, what they are thinking about the World Cup, and then report it back to our players.”
“Our team will be in Oman at least 15-16 days before the World Cup, which is enough time for acclimatizing with conditions and wickets. I don’t think pitches and conditions here will have any impact over there. We have built a winning mentality, which will help us be confident in the World Cup.”
Shakib Al Hasan, however, continued to criticize the pitches at the Shere Bangla National Stadium where Bangladesh won the last two T20I series against Australia and New Zealand. Shakib Al Hasan was one of four batters to score more than 100 runs in the two series, averaging 17.66 with a 97.54 strike rate batting in the top-order in nine games. The collective batting average in both series was 14.73 and 16.48 respectively.

Shakib Al Hasan: Bangladesh Well Prepared By Winning The Last 3 T20I Series

Shakib Al Hasan had said after the first match against New Zealand that the pitch was more difficult than the ones used in the preceding Australia series. He said that the batters will have to forget about playing in Dhaka if they are to do well in the T20 World Cup.
“Those who played the last nine-ten matches, are all out of form. That’s how the wicket was. Nobody did well. I hope the batters don’t count this performance. Careers will end if any batter plays 10-15 matches on these wickets. Let’s not take this into account. Everyone will try hard to win games for the country.”

“I think we are well prepared, by winning these last three (T20I) series. There’s been a lot of criticism about pitches and low scores, but there’s nothing better than winning. Such a winning streak takes confidence to a different level. You wouldn’t have it if you played well but lost. We want to go to the World Cup with confidence.”

In their last three T20I series, Bangladesh defeated Zimbabwe, Australia, and New Zealand. The side has gotten the experience of playing on low and spinning tracks and the same kind of surfaces can be expected in the T20 World Cup. Bangladesh will arrive in Muscat at least two weeks ahead of their first game, while Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman will be playing the IPL’s UAE phase.
All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan says Bangladesh will head to the 2021 T20 World Cup later this year full of confidence after series wins against Zimbabwe, Australia, and New Zealand. Bangladesh’s Twenty20 side defeated hosts Zimbabwe 2-1 in July, beat Australia 4-1 at home in August, and completed a 3-2 series victory against New Zealand in Dhaka on Friday.

While Root is currently not a regular T20I player, the right-handed batsman has scored 893 runs in 32 T20Is (average 35.72; strike-rate 126.30), including five fifties. In T20 career, Root has scored 1619 runs in 72 matches (average 30.54; strike-rate 125.69), including nine half-centuries. However, his T20 performances in the last two years were not so impressive.

Root entered the IPL auction for the first time in 2018 but he was unsold at the end. He was even disappointed to miss out that tournament. But while the 29-year-old Root is now not much seriously involving in the T20I cricket, it is hard to expect him the in the future IPL.

IPL Is Probably The Best Franchise Tournament In The World: Mahmudullah

The 34-year-old present Bangladesh T20I captain Mahmudullah Riyad wants to experience the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) as he was available for the 2020 IPL auction. Still, his name didn’t come to the auction table.

Many overseas international cricketers have expressed their positive feeling to experience the cash-rich league IPL, majorly due to the stiff competition. Mahmudullah, who is one of the senior cricketers in the present Bangladesh national cricket team, also has the same feeling.

In the 2020 IPL auction, Mahmudullah had the base price of INR 75 lakh. However, his name was not taken during that IPL auction as there was no chance to get a bid. Recently, during an Instagram live session with his national teammate Tamim Iqbal, who was signed by Pune Warriors India (PWI) in the IPL 2012 as an injury replacement but didn’t play a match, Mahmudullah spoke about his wish to feature in the IPL tournaments. He feels that the IPL is the best franchise tournament in the world.

The Bangladesh T20I captain said, “Obviously, because IPL is a big stage and everybody looks after it and everybody wants to play there. Because the tournament is so fantastic and I think probably the best franchise tournament in the world.”

If I get an opportunity to play there then it would feel great to me: Mahmudullah

Mahmudullah has played 87 T20Is, where the right-handed batsman has scored 1475 runs (average 24.18), and the right-arm off-spinner has taken 31 wickets. Meanwhile, in 214 T20 matches, he has scored 3873 runs (average 24.98) and also took 102 wickets.

Mahmudullah feels that it would be great for him if he got an opportunity to play in the IPL. However, the senior Bangladesh cricketer also added that he had no disappointment for missing out the IPL.

He added, “If I had a chance to play there it would have been obviously great for me. Because we all want to play and perform at the highest level. InshaAllah if I get an opportunity to play there then it would feel great to me. There’s nothing to be disappointed all we have to do play the way we want.”

India Vs Bangladesh 2019/20: Third T20I – Match Preview, Stats Preview, Where To Watch

The hosts India and the visitors Bangladesh will play the third and final T20I of the series on Sunday (10th November) at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium (Nagpur).

It is going to be the series-decider encounter as the series is currently standing at 1-1 situation. The visiting side won the first T20I of this series at Delhi by seven wickets. However, the hosts India dominated in the second T20I and clinched an easy victory by eight wickets at Rajkot.

Indian players need to be consistent to win this series

Due to the lack of regular players in the present T20I side, the Indian team is not consistent in this format. India have won only one T20I bilateral series out of their last five bilateral series since November 2018.

India have the powerful batting line-up. But while many regular players are not present in this batting line-up, the team is majorly depended on the experienced openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul need to perform better.

Similarly, the bowlers are also very talented but most of them have lesser experiences. Due to low experiences, some bowlers aren’t consistent yet, and the team is struggling to take wickets at regular intervals.

Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is playing a big role in Indian bowling line-up in this series. Meanwhile, the left-arm Khaleel Ahmed has disappointed in this series.

Bangladesh are looking to create a new history

Bangladesh have performed well in this year’s T20Is. Out of the six T20Is in this year, Bangladesh have won four matches and lost twice.

Though the visiting side Bangladesh is missing some experienced cricketers in this series, the lesser-experienced side is playing good competitive cricket against the strong home team.

During this series, Bangladesh first-time beat India in T20I format (Delhi T20I). Now, Bangladesh have a great chance to create another history on Sunday night. If they win the Nagpur T20I, it will be one of their memorable T20I series victories. Till the date, Bangladesh have won only two away bilateral T20I series.

Stats Preview:


i) Rohit Sharma has hit 398 sixes in the international career. He is two sixes away to become the first Indian and third overall batsman to hit 400 international sixes. Chris Gayle (534 sixes) and Shahid Afridi (476 sixes) are the only two batsmen to hit 400 international sixes.

India Vs Bangladesh 2019/20: Second T20I – Match Preview, Stats Preview, Where To Watch

On Thursday (7th November) evening, the hosts India will face the visitors Bangladesh in the second T20I of the three-match T20I series at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium (Rajkot).

They played the opening T20I of this series on last Sunday (3rd November) at Delhi. It was the 1,000th T20I match where India suffered a seven-wicket defeat against Bangladesh. That was the first-ever T20I victory for Bangladesh against India.

India can’t afford another defeat in this series

Rohit Sharma-led Indian team has enough potential but suffered a defeat in the last T20I at Delhi. Apart from MS Dhoni and Jasprit Bumrah, the regular captain Virat Kohli is also missing in this T20I series, and expectedly it has put the significant effect on the team.

The experienced openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan need to provide the good starts. Also, KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant like regular players need to improve their batting qualities. Shreyas Iyer is a very talented batsman and he can open up properly if he gets regular chances.

The pacers and spinners are very talented but most of them haven’t much experience in international cricket.

India can’t afford another defeat in this series. Meanwhile, they must have to win both the remaining T20Is to win this series.

One day ahead of this match, the Indian captain Rohit Sharma has hinted to change the playing XI according to the pitch condition.

Bangladesh are one win away to create another history

Despite the absence of some top experienced players like Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Bangladesh have started this T20I series in a brilliant way. In the Delhi T20I, they dominated over the hosts in almost every aspect.

Bangladesh are currently the in-form T20I side. But they will face the tougher competition in the Rajkot T20I, as the superpower Indian team will be desperate to save this series anyhow. However, this Bangladesh team has enough talent to snatch another victory in this series.

The Bangladesh team is likely to field the same playing XI that secured the historic victory in Delhi T20I.

Stats Preview:


i) Rohit Sharma will become the second cricketer to play 100 T20Is. Only the Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik (111 T20Is) has played 100+ T20Is.

ii) The Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal needs to pick up one more wicket to become India’s leading T20I wicket-taker at home. He is on the joint top position in this list with the pacer Jasprit Bumrah as both have taken 24 T20I wickets at home.

iii) Yuzvendra Chahal (47 wickets), is three wickets away to complete his 50 T20I wickets. After Ravichandran Ashwin (52 wickets) and Jasprit Bumrah (51 wickets), Chahal will be the third Indian bowler to complete 50 T20I wickets.

iv) Opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan (1,454 runs) is 46 runs behind to complete his 1,500 T20I runs. The left-handed batsman will be fifth Indian batsman to score 1,500 T20I runs.

The upcoming Bangladesh tour of India has suddenly moved under the cloud as Bangladesh cricketers have decided to boycott Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) until their 11-point demand is met.

Some of their demands are:

i) Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) should run in the franchise model. Earlier, it was the franchise-based tournament. However, recently, the BCB didn’t accept some demands of the franchises. So, they have finally decided to run BPL 2020 without any franchise. In addition to this demand, the local players should get the same salary as foreign players.

ii) Dhaka Premier League shouldn’t have any salary cap. Dhaka Premier League is the premier domestic tournament in Bangladesh.

iii) Adding more players in the central contract along with salary rise.

iv) They also mentioned arising the salary of the coaching staff, physios, trainers, groundsmen etc.

v) Similarly, the salary should be increased in first-class cricket along with the improved facilities of gyms, indoor nets, grounds, quality of balls, daily allowance, team hotels etc.

vi) After dismissing present Cricketers Welfare Association of Bangladesh (CWAB), it needs a fresh election to avoid the conflict of interest. Bangladesh players are demanding the power to select the head of the association.

vii) Unresolved payment should be cleared in proper time.

viii) Introducing a proper calendar for domestic cricket.

ix) Introducing one more List A and T20 domestic tournaments. At present Bangladesh has two first-class tournaments but one List A and T20 tournaments.

x) Top Bangladesh players should be allowed to play at least two foreign franchise leagues during the free period from national duties.

Shakib Al Hasan clarifies about the boycott

The senior Bangladesh cricketers like Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah Riyad have led the press conference. Later, Shakib clarified that entire Bangladesh cricketers are supporting this boycott. However, he further added that the junior cricketers, including the U19 side, are not in this boycott list.

Shakib also mentioned that the women cricketers are also not in the boycott list. However, they will welcome the women cricketers if they have any further demands.

On the other hand, BCB has just learnt about this boycott. They are trying to resolve this immediately.

BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury claimed, “We just came to know about it we will discuss it in the board and try to resolve it as soon as possible. I don’t think it is anything like revolt. They are yet to tell us anything formally, but we are looking into the matter.”

In November 2019, Bangladesh has the schedule to play T20I and Test series against the hosts India

According to the FTP schedule, Bangladesh will tour in India in the next month. In November, Bangladesh will play three-match T20I series and two-match Test series against the hosts India between 3rd November and 26th November 2019. The Test series against India is going to be the opening series for Bangladesh in the inaugural ICC World Test Championship (2019-21).

However, the upcoming Bangladesh tour of India has suddenly moved under the cloud due to the latest boycott.

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Bangladesh Camp Is Unsure On Mahmudullah’s Availability Against India

Bangladesh national cricket team have hugely impressed in the ongoing 2019 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. They are currently in the serious contention to qualify for the semi-finals of this tournament. However, ahead of their crucial upcoming CWC match against India, the Bangladesh camp is unsure about the availability of Mahmudullah Riyad.

After playing seven matches in this tournament, Bangladesh have earned seven points. They have already beaten South Africa, Windies and Afghanistan in this tournament. Bangladesh team have also fought well against New Zealand, England and Australia but suffered defeats in those encounters. Another match against Sri Lanka had no result due to the rain washout.

In the ongoing round-robin stage of this competition, Bangladesh have left two more matches – against India and Pakistan. Both these matches are now crucial for Bangladesh as both these games are the must-win matches for them. However, they also have to look at England’s last round-robin stage match result (against New Zealand on 3rd July). If England wins this match, then Bangladesh is likely to have no more chance to qualify for the semi-finals.

Bangladesh will face India on Tuesday (2nd July) at Birmingham. But the right-handed middle-order batsman Mahmudullah Riyad is doubtful for this crucial encounter.

During Bangladesh’s last match against Afghanistan, Mahmudullah suffered a calf injury. Just recently, he has returned to the training. But the Bangladesh camp is still unsure about his availability for the crucial upcoming match against India.

BCB chief selector doesn’t think Mahmudullah’s presence in the playing XI against India

BCB chief selector Minhajul Abedin has recently claimed that he doesn’t believe Mahmudullah’s availability in their upcoming match against India.

He told Cicfrenzy on Monday, “I don’t think he can make it.”

Mashrafe Mortaza is still hopeful

However, the Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza hasn’t made any final call yet as the physio is still hopeful.

Talking about Mahmudullah’s availability against India, Mortaza quoted, “The physio [Thihan Chandramohan] has not yet given a final call, so there is some time on that front.”

In the ongoing CWC, Mahmudullah has played an essential role in the middle-order batting. The right-handed batsman has scored 190 runs in six matches of this tournament with an average of 47.50. He has hit one half-century in this tournament, and that was against the mighty defending champions Australia (69 runs).

So, his presence during the match against India will be crucial for Bangladesh. Meanwhile, his absence will hurt Bangladesh’s confidence. But whatever, Bangladesh is ready to take on India in their upcoming must-win game.

ICC World Cup 2019: Mahmudullah Riyad Suffers Calf Injury Ahead Of Crucial Clash Facing India

The Mashrafe Mortaza-led Bangladesh team has got a massive blow with their key player Mahmudullah Riyad being under the scanner for a calf injury. The stylish batsman has suffered the injury against Afghanistan, where he continued to play with an injury throughout his innings.

Bangladesh boosted their bid to reach the Cricket World Cup semi-finals. Shakib Al Hasan’s superb all-around display inspired a 62-run win over Afghanistan. Shakib’s 51 laid the foundations for Bangladesh to score 262-7 and made him the leading run-scorer in this year’s World Cup.

The 32-year-old then ripped through the Afghan batting line-up. He finished with superb figures of 5-29 from 10 overs. During the course of the game, Bangladesh got a major blow with their key player being injured.

Mahmudullah Riyad suffered  a Grade 1 Tear:

He did not take the field in the second innings. According to a team source, the right-handed batsman is suffering from a grade one tear in his right muscle. The Tigers’ technical director Khaled Mahmud Shujon revealed the status of Mahmudullah’s injury around three hours after the match ended in Southampton.

“The scan results showed a Grade-1 tear on Riyad’s right calf. At the moment, that is all I can say. I have not spoken to the physio [Thihan Chandramohan] yet. I can tell you more about the recovery period in the morning after speaking to the physio.” Mahmud told The Daily Star.

Typically, a Grade 1 tear takes between seven to 14 days to heal. Mahmudullah came into the match with strapping on his right leg, but it could not be ascertained whether he carried the injury into the match and aggravated it, or whether he sustained the injury while batting.

Bangladesh are up to fifth place in the 10-team group stage, one point behind fourth-placed England in the race to seal a semi-final berth via a top-four finish. They need to win their remaining games in order to be in the contention for the fourth spot.

Trent Boult, Mahmudullah Riyad Charged for Breaching ICC’s Code of Conduct

New Zealand speedster Trent Boult and Bangladesh’s senior all-rounder Mahmudullah Riyad have been charged 15 and 10 per cent on Sunday (February 15) of their match fees. The duo was fined for breaching the Level 1 of International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Code of Conduct.

Regarding the level 1 breach, the maximum penalty is half of the match fee with two demerit point. The minimum penalty includes the official warning.

Besides, Mahmudullah had played a remarkable role during his international stint for the Tigers. The two veterans of the international fold were fined following the fallout of two separate unfortunate incidents. The Hagley Oval in Christchurch has hosted the second One-dayer on February 16 (Saturday).

In Kiwis eight-wicket win over the Tigers, Boult picked a wicket after conceding 49 runs in his quota of 10 overs. The On-field umpires Shaun Haig, Marais Erasmus including third umpire Sundaram Ravi and fourth umpire Wayne Knights, charged the duo.

Owing to misconduct, Mahmudullah hits the picket fence following his dismissal.

The right-handed batsman Mahmudullah managed to score seven before leg-spinner Todd Astle claimed his wicket.

Players accept suspension:

The duo has also accepted the sanctions by the match referee Steve Bernard respectively. However, there was no requirement for the formal hearing. Both the players bagged over a demerit point each following the misconduct. Pertinently, the world governing body revised the law in September 2016.

Also, the 33-year-old Mahmudullah is guilty of violating Article 2.2 of the world board’s Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel. The article covers the equipment of the ground in the international fold, in particular.

On the other side, the left-arm paceman breached Article 2.3 while considering the ‘audible obscenity’.

Meanwhile, the Black Caps lead the three-match series 2-0. Opening batsman Martin Guptill has slammed back-to-back hundreds. The third and final ODI will commence in Dunedin on Wednesday (February 20).

Bangladesh all-rounder Mahmudullah Riyad on Sunday was shifted to a local hospital after suffering a back injury when he was training being as a part of national fitness camp at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur. (Read Here: Mashrafe Bin Mortaza Tips Bangladesh To Do Well In South Africa).

Sportzwiki has learned that Mahmudullah, who has been a strong force to reckon in the Bangladesh’s national setup, complained about a strain on his waist and severe pain in his back muscle before the BCB management shifted the experienced campaigner for the immediate check-up.

The reports revealed 31-year-old Mymensingh-born batsman was taken to the hospital while sweating out during the practice session at the Tigers national stadium.

The initial reports revealed Mahmudullah was performing the weight lifting training in the gym, as a part of his rigorous exercise being as a professional cricketer to meet the standards of the fitness.

The national camp was organised for players to stay fit for the rest of the reason which includes a full-fledged tour to South Africa in the latter quarter of the year.

The BCB media manager Rabeed Imam revealed for the precautionary measure Mahmdullah was shifted to the hospital, as the preliminary reports will suggest whether it’s is the major injury to worry about or not.

Mahmdullah is scheduled to undergo few scans which will further decide about his participation in the current season for his national side.

The initial reports of the scans examined by doctors at the first instance will then be dispatched to the BCB’s administration.

Interestingly, Bangladesh is scheduled to face Australia in the two-match Test series which will be beginning from August 27, as the tour is further subjected to clearance after Australian players are left unemployed owing to the long-standing impasse over a pay dispute between Australia Cricketers’ Associations and Cricket Australia.

Mahmudullah, who spun the web with his off-spin bowling, has featured in 145 One-day Internationals in which he has scored 3,155 runs and bagged 70 wickets.

Rising against the tide in the domestic set-up in Bangladesh, Mahmudullah has played 58 Twenty20 Internationals, as he amassed 810 runs while settling with 22 wickets.

In 33 Tests, Mahmudullah has registered 1,809 runs in Tests which further saw him taking 39 scalps after donning the national jersey in 2007.
