Bangladesh is currently enjoying the media lime light and is highly tipped to produce an upset or two in the World Cup. They are starting the world cup with an impressive 87% winning record in last 15 ODI. They caused a huge media stir after defeating New Zealand in the warm up. However, Bangladesh is one of the most inexperienced team in terms of World Cup experience. 10 out 15 member squad have not featured yet in the biggest stage of world cricket.
