‘Tigers still have plenty to take from WC’

After losing three matches on the trot, T20 international captain Mahmudullah Riyad has said that Bangladesh still have plenty to take from the ongoing ICC World Cup.

Every team has five matches to play in the Super 12 stage of the World Cup. Bangladesh played three of them and lost all. Their latest defeat came at the hands of the West Indies.

In the next two matches, Bangladesh will take on South Africa and Australia on November 2 and 4, respectively.

“We understand that our chances to reach the semi-finals is slim now,” Mahmudullah said. “We still have plenty to take from the World Cup. It would be great if we can win the last two matches. We have been putting our best foot forward to do well, to keep our commitment.”

It was expected that the Tigers would reach the semi-finals of the World Cup. But after having a fragile start — losing to Scotland in the first match of Round 1 — Bangladesh lost their positive vibe. They never were able to get the rhythm back that they displayed against New Zealand and Australia.
