Despite encountering challenges on the path to the World Cup, including a recent 2-0 ODI series loss to New Zealand at home that disappointed fans, Bangladesh is preparing for the World Cup. They have two warm-up matches scheduled against Sri Lanka and England. Their official World Cup journey commences on October 7th with a match against Afghanistan in Dharamsala.
In an unexpected development, Tamim Iqbal, a key figure in Bangladesh’s cricket, was omitted from the 15-player World Cup squad. This decision followed New Zealand’s series triumph, marked by their victory in the third ODI in Dhaka.
Bangladesh’s recent showings in limited-overs cricket have raised concerns among both fans and pundits. Their underwhelming performance in the Asia Cup, which included losses to Pakistan and Sri Lanka, contributed to these concerns.
However, they did secure a noteworthy victory against India during the same competition. As the World Cup approaches, supporters of Bangladesh are optimistic that their team will step up and perform better. The cricketing world eagerly anticipates the start of the 2023 ODI World Cup, commencing on October 5 with a match between the previous finalists, England and New Zealand.
