Bangladesh-New Zealand’s first ODI was washed out due to rain
He served as the assistant coach of the Australia team from 2018-2022. Before this, he worked as the spin bowling consultant of the Australia team from 2015-2018. He also has extensive experience of working as a coach in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He has played for Royal Challengers Bangalore, Punjab Kings and Delhi Daredevils. […]
These changes have been made after Bangladesh decided to rest players like regular captain Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Taskin Ahmed, Hasan Mahmood, Shoriful Islam, Mehdi Hasan Miraj ahead of the ICC World Cup starting next month in India. New Zealand have also fielded a new squad as they have included only five players from […]
Bangladesh XI: Liton Das (captain), Tamim Iqbal, Tanzeem Hasan Tamim, Soumya Sarkar, Mahmudullah, Tauheed Hridayoy, Mahedi Hasan, Nurul Hasan (wk), Nasum Ahmed, Tanzeem Hasan Saqib, Mustafizur Rahman. New Zealand XI: Finn Allen, Will Young, Chad Bowes, Henry Nicholls, Tom Blundell (wk), Rachin Ravindra, Cole McConchie, Ish Sodhi, Kyle Jamieson, Lockie Ferguson (c), Trent Boult
New Zealand’s stand-in captain Lockie Ferguson also stated his team’s ambition to win the series. However, he expressed concern about the weather. According to AccuWeather, there is every possibility of rain on the day of the match.“We are here to win. It all starts in the first game and we will build from there,” Ferguson […]
“Winning a series for the country is always a big achievement. We will not play just to showcase individual talent. A five-wicket haul or a century does not matter if the team does not win. And of course, the preparations for the World Cup are underway. .The players will be very serious,” he said. Liton, […]
“So I think without Tim (Southee) and Matt Henry, Boult will have a bigger leadership role than he always does. But he’s definitely a gem for us and I definitely enjoy playing with him.” And, you know, I’m sure if it’s swinging tomorrow, he’s one of the guys who will get something out of it,” […]
Time for Tamim, Mahmudullah to step up
But the biggest disappointment of all has been not being able to find a finisher for the World Cup. Bangladesh tried two players, Shamim Hossain and Afif Hossain, for this role in the Asia Cup. Shamim got more opportunities than Afif, because he got to play four matches while Afif got two matches. But their […]

India: Rohit Sharma(c), Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan(w), Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Prasidh Krishna
However, Bangladesh will have nothing to gain from this match as the Tigers are already out of the race for the final. Even if Bangladesh beats India, who have booked their place in the final with wins over Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Super 4, they have no chance of qualifying for the final.
However, Razzaq got one thing right. Bangladesh is the only country where there is so much discussion about who should be in the team, who should play in the playing eleven, who should bat at which position, who should bowl with the new ball. BCB, the regulatory body of Bangladesh cricket, is also not untouched […]

Watching Liton Das bat is exhilarating but infuriating, wonderful but frustrating, exhilarating but terrifying. Whenever Liton comes out to bat, Bangladesh cricket fans keep hoping, ‘Maybe this will be Liton’s day.’ In almost every match, Liton plays shots that border on perfection, shots that have a perfect blend of grace and aggression. His head stands […]
