Bangladesh captain Nazmul Hossain Shanto demands better wickets ahead of T20 World Cup

“Some people might take it as an excuse but it is true that we play very few matches on good wickets.”

Bangladeshi pitches are known for low-scoring matches and only one player in their World Cup squad, top-order batsman Tauheed Hridoy, has a T20 international strike rate higher than 130.

“It is difficult to change things in six months. If we continue playing on good wickets for a year or two, the strike rate will improve,” Nazmul said.

Ninth-placed Bangladesh have seen some improvement in the shorter format this decade, winning series against mighty Australia, England and New Zealand at home.

But there were some setbacks along the way, such as a 2-1 loss to the United States in a three-match practice series in Houston this week.

“We have won a few series and we have won against big teams,” Nazmul said ahead of the USA series. “The team’s confidence is in a good state.

“If we can perform in the World Cup like we have played recently, if we can make the right decisions, if we can execute our plans, then it is possible to do something good.”
