T20 World Cup 2022: Bangladesh’s team was out of the tournament after the defeat to Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2022. Bangladesh team won only 2 out of 5 matches of the World Cup. This World Cup was nothing special for him. Captain Shakib Al Hasan was not happy with the team’s performance.
After missing out on the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2022 with just two wins in five Super 12 matches, Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan on Sunday said it was the best possible result for his team with the addition of fresh faces. So recently many changes were made in the team.
Pakistan and Bangladesh got golden opportunities to make it to the last-four stage after South Africa’s defeat to the Netherlands to bow out of the T20 World Cup. However, Bangladesh suffered a five-wicket loss in their previous Super 12 match, which was a virtual quarterfinal, allowing Pakistan to advance to the semi-finals.
Shakib said, “In terms of results, this is our best performance in the T20 World Cup. We could have done better. But having said that, with new players coming in, with changes, it’s the best, whose We can hope.” The captain felt that if the batsmen had batted till the end, a few more runs could have been scored.
He said, “At one point we were 70/1. Wanted to score 145-150, which would have been a reasonable total on that pitch. Knew it would be difficult for new batsmen, so set batsmen ahead till the end. Wanted to increase which didn’t happen.” According to the experienced all-rounder, he could have done better and continued to play. “Based on my performance, I could have done better. As long as I am fit and performing well, I would love to play,” Shakib said.
