Here we are, 10 years later after the format was introduced and are struggling to cross 140 against players who are probably using up their personal time off from their regular job to play in this tournament. This is just embarrassing.

Tanvir bro there is no 2 years time. 2 years ago we lost to freaking Hong Kong in this very format, that too at home during the world cup. So what did we learn from our experience 2 years ago in this format?
Brand new format in the sense that if ODIs have been around for 60 years then T20 is newer comparatively. Obviously it took time for Bangladesh to know how to play this, I think we need to hold BPL more and play in this format more to know that it is not about tarahura as you said, it is also about playing proper cricketing shots. Kohli never takes a risk yet scores at 160 SR. This sort of stuff comes from playing in this format, and after 2 years and us playing BPL 5, maybe we will understand how to play it. But yah, goes to show we have not been a fast learner yet...
