Bangladesh’s performance in the tournament impressed so many cricket legends and former Indian pacer Ajit Agarkar also one of them. He thinks can be the champion of this year’s ICC Champions Trophy.

“Bangladesh were successful and they are playing the semifinal as a deserving team. They are two steps away from being Champion,” Agarkar said.

The 39-year old former cricketer also praised Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah Riyad, two of the heroes of the victory against New Zealand. “They had to win against New Zealand and they did that. Credits should be given to them,” he said.

He further added, “They couldn’t play well in the first two matches but they were excellent in the last match when it was must needed. They lost 4 wickets within 33 runs and it was not an easy task to win from that situation. Their big guns, Mahmudullah and Shakib shined in a perfect time,”

“Shakib was poor throughout the tournament before that match but he came back in form with that match. Mahmudullah has been impressing from 2015 World Cup. Australia had the chance but they failed,” Agarkar concluded.
