London After defeating South Africa by 21 runs in their first match of the World Cup, Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has said that he had a lot of expectations from him in the ICC tournament since the reversal that his team had made in the World Cup in 2007. Are
“Our 2007 World Cup performance has been 12 years and cricket has gone a long way over these years,” said Shakib. At that time, if we played well, it was good for the audience and for us but now he is not satisfied with merely defeating a team. This is the expectations we have extended in the last 12 years. I am very happy but right now the start of the tournament. ”
Bangladesh, who batted first against South Africa on Sunday, had put up a strong score of 330 runs for six and won the match by 21 runs to register their powerful presence in the tournament. It may be noted that Bangladesh has improved its game considerably over the past decade. For the first time in the World Cup in 2015, he had made it to the quarterfinals and recently won the series by beating Ireland and West Indies in the tri-series.
“Before this World Cup, we knew what challenges we had to overcome, so we designed ourselves in the same way,” said the Bangladeshi all-rounder. We went to Ireland where we performed really well and beat the West Indies and Ireland Copa. The tour boosted the team’s confidence. There are many things in this tournament in which we have to prove ourselves. The team’s players are full of confidence. ”
