When will Bangladesh win this World Cup again?
Big win. big defeat big defeat……..
The next room is empty so far. What will be added there? One win or another or a few more losses. After two big losses in this World Cup, the condition of the Bangladesh team is like a poor man who lost all his capital in the stock market in one day!
With two defeats in three matches, the helplessness of losing everything is obvious among the Bangladesh team. Even before the start of the World Cup, the team's players have been avoiding journalists who have come to cover the tournament. The attitude is as if speaking in front of the media, perhaps the ICC will throw the whole team out of this tournament!
But the opposite is the case with other teams. Almost all teams are facing the media, talking frankly, stating what the problems are. They are making every effort to increase their courage and confidence before entering the field. And from the first day of the World Cup, the Bangladesh team seems to want to avoid many things!
A team can lose in big tournaments. Examples are in front of our eyes. Five-time champions Australia have lost their first two matches in this World Cup. But even if they lost, they were not lost because they know how to move around. Australia came to play as the top favorite team of the World Cup and fell into this situation today. If we talk about pressure then the whole team is supposed to be crushed by the way the team lost in the first two matches! But the team is Australia, even after such a loss, they keep hope alive.
The reality is that Bangladesh will return home with this World Cup trophy - no one has ever dreamed so far. Whether Bangladesh can surpass the success of all previous World Cups this time; the dream was just that. But two losses in the first three matches have shaken the whole team to such an extent that now the team is afraid to talk about dreams. From that disappointment Mustafizur Rahman said , 'Who knows, I can win six of the next six matches!'
Mustafiz's first step to make the impossible possible will start from October 19. Bangladesh will fight against the mighty India in Pune that day. India has won three of the three matches so far with a huge margin.
India defeated Australia, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The aggressive and planned cricket played by the hosts India with bat and ball in these three matches echoes the old tune of the World Cup trophy - 'It's coming home'!
You must have known by now what the percentage rate of prediction of India-Bangladesh match on October 19 in Pune could be. In that match, the odds of India's victory were inflated.
After Pune, Bangladesh team's next destination is Mumbai. Bangladesh will play against South Africa on October 24 in Shahrukh Khan's hometown. The strength that South Africa is showing in this year's World Cup has already been called by many as possible semi-finalists. South Africa defeated Sri Lanka and Australia two by two. Their number of centuries in these two matches is four. They scored more than 300 runs on the scoreboard in two matches. They won both matches in a completely one-sided fashion.
The entire South African team is shining in the mirror of confidence. There is only one satisfaction in front of Bangladesh in that match in Mumbai on October 24; the result of the World Cup. At that stage, Bangladesh started the World Cup by defeating South Africa. Bangladesh is looking for a possible victory against that team! Which may be the address of survival of Bangladesh in this World Cup!
