Bangladesh Limp into the T20 World Cup after a tense buildup.

Bangladesh Limp into the T20 World Cup after a tense buildup.
The Bangladeshis have been drawn in Group 2, alongside India and Pakistan. To many people's surprise they were not placed higher up on the rankings which means that these three countries will be their toughest opponents so far during this tournament.

Shakib's return to international cricket has been less than successful. He led Bangladesh to two losses in the Asia Cup, and his team is now out of competition for T20 World Cup qualifying spots with a 0-5 record.

The Bangladeshis are in for a tough time at the ICC World Cup 2019. They lost all matches, including one against New Zealand where they were favorites but still couldn't come out on top—and now face India (who beat them by six wickets), Pakistan (including an inevitable defeat) and South Africa as well along with two qualifiers from Group 2 which will decide who qualifies automatically spots available here). "There's no easy match when it comes to world cup soccer," says Coach Naza'mul Abedin; however he remains hopeful that his team can achieve something big despite playing poorly recently. 

Bangladesh’s record in tournaments is dismal. They have never won the T20 World Cup and their only victory came against West Indies back when it was just an inaugural tournament for this format of cricketing greatness! But things might be turning around because last year they beat Australia AND New Zealand at home-the first time either team had been defeated by them on these soil's since 2003…but then things went downhill pretty quickly after that win as well; losing 3-0 to Pakistan right away left fans wide awake late into night wondering what could've gone wrong

Bangladesh's history in international tournaments has not been so great. They only victory came from their first-ever medal at the 2007 T20 World Cup, when they beat West Indies to take home silverware last year before losing badly against Australia and New Zealand just weeks later for another defeatist streak that continues today with yet another 3-0 loss Down Under!

The twin humiliations prompted a shake-up, with head coach Russell Domingo relieved of his T20 duties and replaced by Sridharan Sriram ahead of this year's Asia Cup. The former Bangladesh captain has backed the team to put up a challenge in "tough" conditions Down Under but was under no illusions about their chances against tough opponents like Australia who have been ranked number one for some time.
