Bangladesh is among the few test-playing nations not featured in the World Cup winners list. They are not known as the best-performing sides in the World Cup, but this time, the Bangladesh squad can achieve a greater height for the 2023 World Cup. Check complete details of Bangladesh World Cup Squad 2023
Bangladesh World Cup Squad 2023
With a blend of experience and youth, 90-95% of players in the Bangladesh ODI World Cup squads were confirmed and have been with the team for some time. The only surprise is the inclusion of one of their most prolific batters, Mahmudullah Riyad, and the exclusion of former captain Tamim Iqbal, which became controversial after the squad announcement.
The conditions in this year’s ODI World Cup will favour the Bangladesh spinners, and they have a few of the best spinners in their lineup, along with the batters who are used to playing on slow and low Asian wickets.
Bangladesh Captain for World Cup 2023
Shakib Al-Hassan will continue to lead the side. He has been at the helm of a top job many times before and has the head to lead the side in one of the major events like the Cricket World Cup 2023. He is also the only active batter in the list of top run scorers in ODI World Cups, closing in on the most wickets by a captain in ODI World Cup history.
Bangladesh Batters in World Cup 2023
Bangladesh batting will be led by Shakib, Najmul Hassan Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudllah and young Tanzid Hassan Tamim, who impressed all in his brief ODI career so far. While all others are experienced and have a successful career at top levels, Shanto has emerged as a flag bearer for the Bangladeshi batting lineup and is named deputy to Shakib in the global event.
Bangladesh All-Rounders in World Cup 2023
Bangladesh has an abundance of spin-bowling all-rounders in their squad for the World Cup. All of them can use the conditions well and have the expertise to play an all-important role with the bat. Shakib, Mehigy. Mahedi and Nasum will support the batters and bowlers equally.
Bangladesh Bowlers in World Cup 2023
The only hiccup in the bowling department is of fast bowler Ebadat Hussain, who failed to recover from his knee injury. Despite this loss, Bangladesh has experienced pacers like Taskin Ahmed and Mustafizur Rahman, who can dismantle the opposition with pace and variations. In contrast, Hasan Mahmud and Shoriful Islam are handy as backup options. Young Tanzim Hasan Sakib impressed during his debut in Asia Cup 2023.
Spin bowling will be handled by all-rounders who are mentioned above. With these skills full of all-rounders, there is no need for specialist spinners in the Bangladesh team of the World Cup 2023.
