One of the reasons for Bangladesh's lagging behind in T20 cricket is inefficiency in power hitting. It became more clear during the tour of Zimbabwe. Bangladesh lost the T20 series by 2-1 to the team which is far behind in the ranking.

BCB is also under pressure due to the lackluster performance of the players. Jalal Yunus, chairman of the board's cricket operations committee, expressed helplessness. He said, “We have accepted that we are not good in T20. As we have accepted this, we have made some changes in the team. We did it for the betterment, from positive thoughts. We wanted to implement as per our plan. Maybe those we thought about couldn't bring such results. But we are not disappointed. We will turn around hopefully.”
Besides bringing in new players, BCB is desperate to get players used to power hitting. Jalal Yunus added, “They need to be more up-to-date. More practice should be done. Look at how the Zimbabwean players played the T20, were very aggressive. We want our team to have at least 5 power-hitters to play powerful shots. You cannot suddenly make someone like this. Among those who already have a tendency to play such shots... We will train them more and make them players of that level.”
