Tamim surprised by Bangladesh’s decision-making

Former Bangladesh captain Tamim Iqbal criticised the team’s decision-making following the team's 50-run defeat in a T20 World Cup Super Eight match against India in Antigua yesterday. The leading run-scorer for Bangladesh in international cricket, sharing his opinion as an expert with ESPNcricinfo, was perplexed by a few decisions that Bangladesh made in regards to the toss and personnel.

We should have scored 170: Shanto

Bangladesh were outplayed in every department in their 28-run loss (DLS) to Australia in their first Super Eight fixture of the ongoing T20 World Cup in Antigua today as skipper Najmul Hossain Shanto was left regretting not putting up a decent enough total on the board.

Bangladesh T20 World Cup batting 'not acceptable', says Shanto

"It is not possible that every day the bowlers will make the team win. I hope they make us win every day, that's what I hope for but the batsmen also have a responsibility.

Shanto praises bowlers in Nepal win, promises better batting in Super 8s

With the Super 8s berth, the Tigers also secured a direct qualification for the 2026 T20 World Cup, to be co-hosted by India and Sri Lanka.

Will Shanto’s willow stop snoozing?

At one end, there is captain Shanto, a smart leader who has been brave with his use of bowlers, excellent with his on-field decisions, has taken a number of gutsy calls, and almost all of his gambles have come off.

Difficult batting wicket gives Bangladesh confidence of fighting equally

For Bangladesh head coach Chandika Hathurusingha, the lack of runs at the venue meant that both Bangladesh and South Africa have equal chances, going into the game on Monday.

Can Bangladesh make it to the Super 8s of the T20 World Cup?

Bangladesh managed to reignite their confidence after winning their opening T20 World Cup fixture against Sri Lanka in New York on Saturday. Having come under immense scrutiny in their build-up to the major event, Najmul Hossain Shanto’s side seemed to have turned a corner and now eye a place into the Super 8s of the tournament following the thrilling win against the Lankans. With an encounter against South Africa up next, The Daily Star’s podcast Pitch Perfect brings you a discussion about Bangladesh’s chances to go through to the next stage.

Planning, execution, process coming together for Tigers

Quite a few aspects like planning, execution, and process – things that Bangladesh players resort to while stating their expectations ahead of a game -- came through in their thrilling two-wicket win over Sri Lanka at the Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas yesterday.
