View Full Version : What are your expectations for the upcoming T20 World Cup?

Hey folks, I was wondering what are you expectations for Bangladesh for the upcoming T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka? I'm asking for both results and in general.

Batting wise, we seem to be an improved side. Tamim and Mushfiq have shown positive signs in the SLPL. We also seem to have a better game plan when it comes to our batting. I think the contribution for the middle and lower order will play a huge part in setting either a modest target or a threatening one.

Bowling wise, I'd like to see a better collective effort. We know what our spinners are capable of doing; restricting runs and taking wickets. But we also know that the wickets in Sri Lanka are changing, becoming friendlier to pace. We need our pacers to step up big, taking a few early wickets so our spinners can really turn on the pressure in the middle overs.

Fielding wise, other than the occasional brain fart, we are a good fielding side, probably the best in the sub continent. We must do everything to restrict 15-20 runs on the field and take advantage of the run out and catch opportunities. If we do so, we will restrict teams to modest totals.

Overall, I expect Bangladesh to advance to the QF and put on the good show during the World Cup. Most cricket followers know that we are no longer an easy target and at the end of this World Cup, I want them know that Bangladesh cricket is here to stay and do damage :D

No expectation to be honest, though the team should be aiming for the semis. But this us their worst format, I'll say this though, if they win the toss they should choose to bowl first because they're better at it.

I do have expectations. My expectation is that they will lose both their games and leave the tournament.

My expectation is to play in the semis.
Its a bit tough ask on the day we lose to TnT, but one match should not deter us from our goal.
T20 is a tricky format and all it takes is one man to stand firm and deliver on the given day.

In the World Cup group stage, we have NZ and Pakistan.
We should fancy our luck against the Kiwis and Inshallah would come victorious on 21st.
Against, pakistanis, a win would be bonus but that's going to be a tough task.

Group Stage : NZ and Pakistan.
Win 1/2 match, ie, 50% win.

Super 8 stage : If we are D2, we will play A1, B2, C1.
Most likely teams: India (A1), Australia (B2), South Africa. (C1).

If we are D1, we will play A2, B1, C2.
Most likely teams : England (A2), West Indies (B1), Sri Lanka (C2).

Either group, mighty tough for us, but not impossible.
2/3 wins, we are in chance to be in the semis.

Haven't lost hope in the past and will not do so for the coming days.
Inshallah we can mark our progress by advancing to the highest level we ever been in a world cup.

In t20.. absolutely no expectations...

If scot,ned and t&t can see us off, expecting a win against nz (let alone pak) is too much to ask. SL condition, slpl experience etc etc still suppose to be in our favor, but we all know those actually doesnt mean much.

Having said that, its t20... i am yet to take it seriously.... so expectations set accordingly...

I honestly don't see us beating Pakistan unless Pakistan have one of those days that only Pakistan can manage to have.

The Kiwis are a good team and it won't be easy to beat them. Yes we can choke them with spin but its a T20 game. They will come out swinging and even if a couple of players like McCullum and Franklin get a move on we could easily be seeing a high score to chase if they are batting first.

That being said it doesn't matter who the players are. Ajmal, Afridi, McCullum, Franklin -- are all names on papers and all that matter will be those 40 overs on that certain day. We have beaten big names before and yes even though we aren't all that strong in T20s we have supported Bangladesh in worst situations and scenarios. So losing two matches wont stop that but winning and qualifying for the next round -- the support will only get stronger.

Wasn't the tour focused just for practice?
Look at the three different matches we have played, we had a new squad for every match; means - coach tryed to see how he could get the best squad possibe!

And I know Pybus have a final thought about our WC squad - which was the only goal for this tour.

Smile and you will feel good! :)

we should forget about btting first.
even in ODis we r poor at setting up big targets.
bowl first,restrict opposition below 145 and play without too much pressure about the rrr.
thats the only way I can imagine ourselves winning.

Expectations and reality may remain far apart from each other. So, yeah I'll pass this time around.

September 9, 2012, 07:55 AM
Correct me if i am wrong but i think NZ never beat Pakistan in an WC, now if this tradition continues we only need to win vs NZ for a pass to round 2

A win against NZ isn't out of our capabilities, in sub continent conditions BD and NZ aren't farther apart from each other in terms of strength..so we have a good chance in this match

while talking about NZ no body is considering a win vs pak, if you look at the last 5 matches vs pak, we improved every game..the last 3 odis vs pakistan was anybodies game, Pakistan snatched victory from us as they were the better team..but every game we pushed pakistan to the limit...and the margin of defeat became narrower every passing game..the last T20 WC match vs pak was also a close one..at one stage we were in a winning position before ash and shakib had a brain fart..so win vs pak isn't totally out of the picture, and if you look close it may be even brighter then win vs NZ

NZ shouldn't be hard to beat given their inability to play well against spin..if we beat 'em then all we need to do to make it to the 2nd round is to maintain a higher NRR..this pakistan side scares me specially when it's t20; so my call is: we'll lose the last group match.. In super 8, we r most likely to face india,SA & AUS...SA might be a tough call but a win against india wouldn't surprise me..they might be d world champion but we DID make a mockery out of 'em in ASIA cup! And about Australia: check the t20 ranking list & u'll know who should win :D..
so semifinal is what i expect from tigers...may be a little irrational; but hey, if fans try to be rational about their teams, where the fun of sports would be?

Collapse as usual is my expectation. I reckon our players who took part in SLPL will fail to make any real impact and thus leaving the less experienced to finish with a "respectable loss". Did tamim even do that well in SLPL? I Did not follow it and only saw clip of his first match where he did well but then I heard next match he had a duck.

September 9, 2012, 04:02 PM
lol, I remember before wc2011 ppl were dreaming about semi final.. and that was at home and we got destroyed by wi and sa, 58 and 78 all out. still every1 expecting/ predicting semi final/ final.. I just hope they dont make predictions for a living.. this team just delivers once in a full moon and has never delivered on the big stage.. my expectation is "respectful loss" against NZ and Pakistan.
Team is full of boys and losers who cant handle expectation and don't have mental strength to deliver on big stage/ against decent teams other than occasional once or twice a year fluke. Hearing excuses after every series/ tournament, we are "improving" only playing odi for 20 years, test for 15 years etc and all that crap.. only have 160 million population, players only get 2 koti taka per year..

Win against India wouldn't surprise you?? Really?? Your team just lost to a club side minus their star players. Bdesh even lost to Scotland and Netherlands. and you say that a win against India wouldn't surprise you. :lol:

^^ A win against any top side doesn't surprise us anymore.
Yes, we still haven't shrugged off the habit of losing the odd games to the associates, but at the same time, we have also managed to beat the top teams pretty regularly over the past few years.

Neither the loss nor the win surprises us anymore.
We are capable of both.

which top teams you have beaten regularly?? I can only see Bdesh has beaten West indies twice, other than that you haven't beaten any top team. don't mix the formats. Its t 20.

I am not trying to bash Bdesh, but your team rarely upsets big teams in this format, so saying beating India wouldn't be surprising is a big statement.

Maybe the timing of this thread has got people feeling slightly pessimistic, but that's understandable after our loss against T&T. I feel like the attitude of our fans will be different if we get better results against Zimbabwe and Ireland in the warm up matches.

A lot of fans were scared sh**less just prior to the Asia Cup because the rest of the 3 world champion teams were in supreme form and feared that we will be annihilated.

The boys didnt play any OD matches for few months prior to the event.
Hec, we didnt even play any International matches for few months.

We stood no chance.
We even lost the first game of the tournament.
The rest, as they say, is history.

BD has probably played the least amount of t20Is among test playing nations..heck, we weren't even listed in the t20 ranking couple of months ago due to the low amount of matches we played..so we have to work on the stats outside t20s & put aside your 'mixing-up-format' logic outside the equation..if i'm not wrong we have beaten india more than we have beaten any other top teams, hence i said a win against them wouldnt be surprising..

Ok, you want to talk about ODI cricket then let it be.

Bd have beaten India more than any other team. So WI and Nz are not good enough for you.

3 out of 24 matches. In the year 2004, 2007 and 2012. :lol:
you had to wait to beat India 5 years to win in Asia cup and you say its not surprising as if you are beating India for ages.

You can think what ever you want. But it still called as upset every time Bd wins against a top nation.

Some of the Pakpassion members were not just saying that. They were trolling left and right and rightly got banned.

If you say one thing like man Afridi's batting suck hasn't improved in ages, they will come after you with well your team batsman average less than 25, you shouldn't be talking about Afridi. There are plenty of good things going for our cricket, maybe not as good as when you compare it to India/Pak but it's still something. As long as you can acknowledge the good and the bad it's not trolling. Whoever that says members get banned from telling the truth is just spreading lies. Everyone is welcome here.

It just becomes a problem when posters with hate want to get others hating as well. I have often seen on PP that some posters often claim BC posters are ALL saying this or that, when in reality they have read a few posts from less than a handful of individuals but they go and make out as if everyone in the forum is saying the same thing.

Its a south-asian cultural disease, where we exaggerate reality and criticise others too much. Nothing can be done about it. However on forums I think there needs to be a ban on mentioning what others are saying in other forums, as most posters will take it as a FACT instead of checking for themselves and thus creating more animosity.

Win against India wouldn't surprise you?? Really?? Your team just lost to a club side minus their star players. Bdesh even lost to Scotland and Netherlands. and you say that a win against India wouldn't surprise you. :lol:

Yes!! Really!! Laugh all you want, but in most big tournaments, we step up for a game or two. Like someone else mentioned earlier, a win against any of the top teams wouldn't surprise me either. On a good day, Bangladesh can beat anyone. We just have less good days than most of the Test playing teams.

Ok, you want to talk about ODI cricket then let it be.

Bd have beaten India more than any other team. So WI and Nz are not good enough for you.

3 out of 24 matches. In the year 2004, 2007 and 2012. :lol:
you had to wait to beat India 5 years to win in Asia cup and you say its not surprising as if you are beating India for ages.

You can think what ever you want. But it still called as upset every time Bd wins against a top nation.

Anytime we're the underdog, which we are almost all the time against Test playing nations, it's an upset when BD wins, so thank you for pointing out the obvious genius. No one here cares if we're the favorites or the underdog or whether Bangladesh's win was an upset or not. All we want is to see our team perform well and get positive results.

As for Pakistan, both Bangladesh and Pakistan are just as unpredictible as eachother, however, T20 being their strength, it will be a tough one. I'm hoping for a good fight.

I am very much excited to watch BD’s performances in the T20 World Cup.
My Expectation: Considering the recent T20 form, BD should win against the NZ, If BD don’t—that will be an upset. Against Pakistan: If our openers make a good start (9/10 RPO)—we will win for sure. I get the feelings that BD will go to the next round. Finger Crossed.:flag:

@ World Champs, be careful on how you go on about saying negative think about Bangladesh. If you end up saying to much you will be banned. It's unfair, many from Pakpassion has got banned before, for saying something like Pakistan will whitewash Bangladesh, Don't like the truth:).
You break forum rules you are subject to get a ban. Are you new at internet or just trolling?

Its not about how other team play and how hard they come, its all about us what we do and how good we play.

You can't play international game thinking other team will came hard at you so hand over the match even before the game starts.

I think that's fairly obvious. I'm simply pointing out the fact that our boys may not want to win quite as badly as NZ, who really have a lot to prove.

I dont care. You dont go around telling that India, Ban, SA etc arent good at cricket or point flaws after your own country lost a series. First of all Pak were lucky to win the super over in the 2nd T20i match so Australia could have won the T20 series as well.

If you are bankrupt you dont go around insulting other people who might be bankrupt as well. Simple logic.

And so what if he comes with a huge troll message? The only person he is trolling is himself. He can talk about how bad BD are in cricket because the truth is that we are bad at cricket. So him stating that fact to me isnt going to make me angry but instead makes me less worried that the rest of the world arent deceived by our Asia Cup campaign.

T20 is the most unpredictable of the three formats. Thus, not making to the next round and winning the Cup are both possible. I think we'll make it to the next round, but that's it.

BCB XI was there for match practice to find out the best squad for the WC T20, thus, Mash, Tamim and some others didn't play the match. If we cared too much about to win, we would have selected the best XI.

We don't play just for the money!!

And thus we give the cup to some associate nations like Afghanistan. Pretty shameful.

The success behind Australia is they always have the professional attitude. They are not bothered about the best XI. You can see Australia played their best team even against Afghanistan. And look at us. Sits out the top two performers of the team :facepalm:

The match that Australia played against Afghanistan was an official ODI. We played in an unofficial third grade tournament in a completely different condition to that of the upcoming WC as warm up! It's hard to motivate players for such a tourney. I question BCB's judgment for participating in that.

Ashwin destroys NZ in the test series, but then gets destroyed in the T20 match. That just made me more alert since we are hopeful of a win against them with our SLA's, in the most unpredictable format.

I was watching the England/SA match and Atherton and N. Hussain talked about the WC. When Bangladesh came up Atherton just shook his head and said "they got some good players like Tamim but they don't have good enough players to advance." And he was being very positive about Zimbabwe and Ireland. I have to admit, it did hurt me a little bit. It seemed that he didnt really know much about our team.I could careless about what the fans on the Internet have to say but when commentators say stuff like that it hurts. It just shows how little respect we get in the cricket world. That's why it's time we start performing in not only world tournaments, but also in series with the big teams. It's shameful that after 12 years of being a Test member, we're still at that stage where nobody gives us a chance. I know we're improving and that's why this is a very important tournament for us.

I am wondering if people's perspective have changed after the two warm up matches?

The outlook probably would have been a bit more positive IF we had beaten Ireland. But I feel our loss to Ireland will lead us to have bleak expectations for this World Cup. Which isn't necessarily bad... It will make the victory even sweeter :D :fanflag:

If every team has the same amount of points after their 2 group stage matches, then it's net run rate. If every team wins one and loses one, they'll have the same amount of points.

Whenever BD plays expect the worst of scenarios. If they don't meet your expectations you are at least not disappointed and definitely not heartbroken.

If you have high hopes you are more likely to break your keyboard with your forehead.

Like I said, ZERO expectations. And they didn't prove me wrong. As I was prepared for this I'm currently very calm and laughing my *** off! 123 runs?? for one dude? Really?

With Tamim finally "understanding" t20 game (while rest of the openers hitting 100s), Ashraful finally hitting the ball "well" after 20 years, Shakib's broken knee, broken middle order, little to no variation in the bowling department, and no real pace bowler to talk about, we hardly sent the "best team in last 2-3 years."
