The Bangladesh cricket team left the country with the dream of playing the semi-finals in the 13th edition of the ICC ODI World Cup held in India. However, Bangladesh has been eliminated from the group stage after losing consecutively. After a failed World Cup, they returned home this morning. The Tigers were supposed to return home from India on Sunday (November 12) at 9 am. But as the flight was delayed, Nazmul Hossain Shantara stepped into the Shahjalal International Airport around 10:15.
The remaining members of the team management have returned to the country without the foreign coaching staff. All the cricketers are back. However, the cricketers are getting a chance to rest for a few days after returning home. However, the first Test of the two-match Test series against New Zealand will be played from the 28th.
Casp will start three days before that. The first match will be held in Sylhet then the last test will be held at Mirpur Sher-e Bangla Stadium. And the Kiwis will set foot in Dhaka on November 22 to play two Tests.
The Tigers got off to a good start by defeating Afghanistan in their first World Cup match. But after that, there is a downfall. Bangladesh got the bitter taste of defeat in six consecutive matches. As a result, there is concern about playing in the Champions Trophy to be held in Pakistan in 2025.
However, the victory against Sri Lanka in the eighth match reduced that fear a little. After losing against Australia yesterday by a huge margin of eight wickets, the Tigers’ ticket to the Champions Trophy has been confirmed as they are ahead in net run rate. However, Bangladesh’s participation in the upcoming tournament ultimately depends on the result of the Netherlands’ match against India today. If India beat the Netherlands today, the Tigers will get the Champions Trophy ticket.
