After being brutally hit in the opening match of the T20 World Cup, Bangladesh will have to resolve some self-confessed batting problems and play to their reputation in a must-win match with optimistic host Oman on Tuesday.
The Bangladesh team participated as the sixth-ranked team to beat New Zealand and Australia at home.
However, they were found wanting to fight against vibrant Scotland on Sunday and lost six games due to ordinary batting performance.
Bangladesh is expected to drop the Scottish team to 53 in six games and escape, but the pressure on the big stage may have overcome them. Captain Mahmudullah attributed the unexpected defeat to the hitters and said they must perform better in the Oman team that defeated Papua New Guinea.
Bangladesh needs to win on Tuesday to continue to compete for a seat in the Super 12 stage.
“As a batting unit, we are disappointed in ourselves, so this is a big problem. We need to look at where we made these mistakes and may need to try not to repeat these mistakes in the next game,” Mahamu Dura said.
The Bangladeshi bowlers performed well at the start of the game, but their opponents should not be allowed to score 140 in a very unstable situation.
Since the court is expected to remain on the slower side, hitting is not easy, and the batter must find a way to get the boundary and those fast singles.
It is expected that there will be more performances from Litundas and Sumiya Sakkar in the defeated Bangladesh opener on Sunday.
Star all-around player Shakib Al Hasan was far from his best when hitting the ball, and he is expected to find his own rhythm in the game against Oman.
On the other hand, Oman, the co-host of the tournament, enjoyed a near-perfect start to the World Cup journey after being defeated by PNG’s 10 wickets.
Captain Zeeshan Maqsood led from the front, rotating four doors with his left arm.
Oman will have full confidence in the more experienced Bangladesh.
Jatinder Singh of Indian descent is the star of the star. He was unbeaten with 73 points in 42 goals and led the team to a major victory.
Speaking of Bangladesh’s challenge, Maksoud said: “Every game is definitely a difficult game. Yes, we won the game, but that doesn’t mean we should rest and feel at ease.
“Bangladesh is a testing team. They have a lot of good players. They have more experience to play on such a big stage. We must treat this victory as a positive note, and we must play every day. The game-God, what is ours-what is in front of us, we can’t say.”
