Bangladesh has tasted the bitter taste of defeat in five consecutive matches in the current World Cup. As a result, the Tigers’ dream of playing in the semi-finals is over. However, Bangladesh still has three matches left in the World Cup. Team Bangladesh will face Pakistan tomorrow in one of them.
Shakib Al Hasan, the captain of the Bangladesh team, has announced a new goal before the Pakistan match. Shakib spoke at a press conference on Monday (October 30). There he talked about the team’s new goals. Shakib Al Hasan said, ‘We didn’t do it the way we wanted. The Champions Trophy is a goal. But how high we can finish, that is also our goal. That’s why I’m trying to focus on the next three matches.
Shakib also said, ‘We have to win to play in the Champions Trophy. We have set this important goal right now. That’s why there is no way but to win. That is our goal for now.’
Incidentally, the 50-over ICC Champions Trophy is returning to the field in 2025. Earlier in 2017, Bangladesh played the semi-final of this tournament. But in order to qualify for the Champions Trophy this time, they must be at least in the top eight of the 10 teams in the World Cup. That is why there is no option to win in the next three matches.
