Fixtures: Bangladesh in ICC World T20 2016
The ICC World T20 2016 in India will roll onto the ground from today. However Bangladesh do not have any match in the opening day of the competition. They will lock horns with Netherlands on March 9 in their first qualifying bout.
In the Qualifiers stage, they will also meet Ireland and Oman in a bid to win a berth in the Super 10 stage of the tournament. All of Bangladesh’s qualifying fixtures have been slated to be held at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) Stadium in Dharamsala.
It will be quite a job for the Tigers to get through to the next round. And in the process, they may face tricky challenges from the Associates Nations. But if Mashrafe and his troops manage to survive minnows scare, they will get the opponents like Pakistan, India, Australia and New Zealand in the group stage of Super 10 round.
