The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has formed a two-member committee, comprising board directors Enayet Husain Siraj and Jalal Yunus, to review the national team’s performance in the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Oman and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
”The committee has been entrusted with taking the views of Bangladesh squad members (Players and Team Management) and relevant stakeholders to assess why the team could not deliver the expected performance in the event and share its findings with the board,” the BCB said in a statement.
Notably, the Mohammaed Mahmudullah-led Bangladesh side failed to register a single victory from their five games in the Super 12 stage while they also lost to minnows Scotland in the qualifiers.
Despite defeating Australia and New Zealand in home T20I series before the start of the showpiece event, the Bangla Tigers put up a below-par show in the World Cup.
Bangaldesh was only able to register wins against new comers Oman and Papua New Guinea in Al Amerat in the qualifiying round by 26 and 84 runs respectively.
After finishing the qualifying round at the second spot behind Scotland in Group B, the Bangla Tigers somehow managed to enter the Super 12 round.
Placed in the Group 1 of the Super 12 stage, Bangladesh lost all their league games against England, Australia, South Africa, Sri Lanka and West Indies. They finished the Super 12 stage without any win, placed at the bottom of the points table.
To further add to their miseries, Bangladesh star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan was ruled out of in the latter part of the tournament due to a hamstring injury. Notably, Shakib had picked up the injury in his left leg during the contest against West Indies on October 29 and following a 48-hour observation period, the team’s medical staff decided to rule him out of the showpiece event.
