The team that could, but unfortunately wont, Bangladesh have done well to make the main draw, but they will be nothing much more then the whipping boys for the bigger countries to get their NRR up before the knockout stages.
With their batting resting on the shoulders of qualifying hero Tamim Iqbal, and their most consistent performers Shakib al Hassan and Mushfiqur Rahim. If those three fail with the bat, there isnt much to come afterwards.
Much the same can be said for their bowling, reliant on al Hassan and Mashrafe Murtaza to take the wickets, their lack of an effective plan B will hurt them in the long run. Unfortunately for them, they’ll struggle to make the game a competition, let alone make it out of the group.
