ICC World Twenty20

Taskin & Mithun earn maiden call-ups

Two uncapped players in batsman Mohammad Mithun and pacer Taskin Ahmed got the nod when the national selectors announced a 15-member squad for the three-match ODI series against India. The 24-year old wicketkeeper batsman Mithun earned the call-up for his impressive performance over the last couple of years while 19-year old Taskin, who impressed during his first international appearance in the ICC World Twenty20 match against Australia, won a place ahead of Rubel Hossain as the selectors wanted to see...

Dwyer quits

Bangladesh's strength and conditioning coach David Dwyer has resigned from his position after spending a year with the national team. The Australian, who had gone back home after the ICC World Twenty20, sent an e-mail to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) last week stating his decision. BCB Director Akram Khan confirmed Dwyer's departure. “Yes we received his e-mail last week. He is leaving because he got a better opportunity elsewhere. I don't think there is much to worry about, we...

Hospitality not enough

Hospitality not enough

Bangladesh's reputation as a good host was enhanced with the successful ending of the ICC World Twenty20; the biggest tournament the country has organised, in which a total of 26 teams took part. With it has been cemented in the global cricketing consciousness what we as Bangladeshis always knew; that we as a people are generous and inviting hosts. It is hard to imagine now that there was once doubt over the hosting of two international events -- the Asia Cup and the World Twenty20 -- due to security concerns, but both tournaments have been hosted in the right spirit and in a peaceful manner. For these successful endeavours all...

Who to have final smile?

Lasith Malinga kept standing at one end of the pitch for a while on the gloomy afternoon yesterday at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur and it looked like the stand-in Sri Lanka skipper was seeking divine blessings ahead of today's ICC World Twenty20 final against a prolific India. The memories of the night...

A time for change?

A time for change?

It's been four days since Bangladesh's dreadful World Twenty20 campaign officially came to an end and apart from the noise created from Shakib Al Hasan's controversial interview, the post- tournament period has so far been a quiet one for the Tigers, with no major changes announced by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) as...

The Indian juggernaut showed no sign of letting up on way to setting up an all-Asian final in the ICC World Twenty20.

Tigers' nightmare run ends with a defeat

Bangladesh finished their ICC World Twenty20 campaign without any fond memories as they suffered a seven-wicket defeat, their fourth in as many Super 10s games, against Australia at the Sher-e-Bangla national Stadium yesterday. A slightly improved batting, courtesy of a 112-run third-wicket stand between Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim, was not good enough...

Mushfiqur doesn't know what the problems are

Mushfiqur doesn't know what the problems are

What Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim said after his side's seven-wicket defeat to Australia yesterday in their last game of the ICC World Twenty20 was nothing new from the little man regarding his team's dismal show in the tournament. But what Australia opener Aaron Finch had to say about debutant paceman Taskin Ahmed was...

Cometh Oz, cometh Yuvi

Australia's steep nosedive continued as they lost their third match of the ICC World Twenty20 in a row as the form team, a Yuvraj Singh-powered India, romped to a 73-run victory in their Super 10s match at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium yesterday. After being asked to bat first, Yuvraj -- who averaged 61.75 against...

Tigers no different

On a hot and humid evening nothing out of ordinary happened at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur yesterday as Pakistan gave another lesson to the Tigers and enhanced their chances of qualifying for the semifinals of the ICC World Twenty20.
