The upcoming Cricket World Cup will be held in England next year. Ahead of the biggest ICC event, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president, Nazmul Hasan Papon does not seem much optimistic about Tigers doing well in the World Cup.
He said, “It is tough to predict whether Bangladesh would do well in the World Cup. Bangladesh is now playing well. But there are other teams as well who are also doing great. To get victory, two things are needed – good players and good team. We have good players but as a team we are not prepared yet. We are behind of many teams from that.”
Although Bangladesh have been doing great in their home ground and also got success in Sri Lanka, their performance has not been impressive out side of the sub-continent. Admitting the face, Papon said players would work on the areas they’re still lack in so that they can perform well in England World Cup.
“Most of our successes came in our home ground or sub-continent. We did not get much success out of sub-continent. As the upcoming world is out of sub-continent, we know what do we have to do and we would try to do that. But the success will depend on how our boys and the opponents perform. It’s one-day game. Whoever plays well in the particular day will win.”
