In recent times, Bangladesh have been through their worst bilateral series that is against South Africa. After being clean swept in the two match Test series, the Tigers were beneath a total eclipse in the three match one day international series as well.

Fabricate a win is far away, Bangladesh couldn’t even draw closer to any sort of contest in all five matches of the series so far.
The third and final ODI ended with a 200 runs defeat; in the post-match press briefing, Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza signed it as a bad omen for country’s cricket.
He said, “We were far behind South Africa in every comparison and failed to build any contest at all. We lost all matches too badly; it was a whale of learning for us.”
Favored by the luck, Bangladesh made through the semi-final of the ICC Champions Trophy. Pointing to that, Mashrafe said, “Losing badly started from Champions Trophy. If we will not be able to correct these mistakes, it will be difficult for us to come with good results in the series to come.”
Mashrafe also said, “To me, the time that passed is a danger signal for Bangladesh cricket; cricketers must learn from it.”
Hoping to bring a real rejuvenation in the T20I series to come, Bangladesh skipper said, “As far as I remember, in last January, Sri Lanka was able to win the T20I series after losing badly in both Test and ODI series. I believe we are capable of restricting South Africa in the shortest format of the game.”
“They might rested some performers and if they would play the way like they played against Sri Lanka in the last series, I think it is possible for us to win,” the skipper added.
