On a batting surface where 300 will/may be a par score, who will be your key batsmen to score 300+ or chase a 300+ successfully? You will need 3-4 batsmen to average 50+ during the tournament.

We can expect Tamim & Mushy to do so. But if one of them has a bad run, who is going to up his game? Shakib, well he is a hit n miss. Mullah? At best, you can have 1 or 2 good inning from him, otherwise, he will average in 20-30. The latter 2 are highly unreliable.

Among Soumya, Sabbir, Liton, Mithun & Imrul (if he is picked) - at least 2 of them need to outstand in front of the world. Can't expect it from Liton when he averages below 20. Besides, when you're chasing 330 and you're 200/5 after 35 overs, do you see Mithun+Sabbir+Saif win you the match against the big teams?

Bowling-wise, when our batsmen collectively can post a 300+ score on board, only then our bowlers come into play to restrict the opponent under 300. If we score 250 on a batting paradise due to top-order collapse, you pick Rubel or Tasking, won't matter. We don't have a bowler who can run down the opposition by taking 5-6 wickets, even on a bowling pitch.
