Was the Mirage Ton curse hidden? Bangladesh’s World Cup defeat and its root causes.

This is not the first time that Shakib has faced such continuous failure in his career. Nazmul doesn’t even understand why he is throwing wickets on bad balls. He told his namesake board chairman, “It would be acceptable if I got out on bad balls but I am getting out on bad balls.”

Everyone can see that the batting is not good and the runs have reduced, but is anyone taking the responsibility to know the reason? Maybe this will reveal your own mistake. Bangladesh’s poor batting performance may be due to a century. The century scored by Mehdi Hasan Miraz while opening the innings against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup could have been the root cause of the ruin of the World Cup. Since then, the coach and captain have shown some strange fascination with the willow for its potential.

And scoring a half-century against the same opponent in the World Cup has further enhanced this. Sometimes it was sent at three o’clock, sometimes at four or five o’clock. Better batsmen are moving down the batting order. But a bigger problem is the change in their habitual state.

Nazmul, who is used to playing at three, changed his position in several matches and the same happened with Tauheed Hridoy’s number five position. Nazmul retained his place in the team due to his name but Tauheed was dropped completely. Questions were also raised about Mahmudullah batting for so long. Why did he have to bat at number seven against Netherlands despite scoring a century in the last match?

The board president and the captain discussed many issues including the batting order. A source confirmed, its effect will be visible in the next three matches.

Even if it is so, perhaps it is too late.
