Before the start of the World Cup, no one could have thought that Bangladesh’s performance would be so dirty. Rather, Shakib-Mushfiqur-Miraj spoke of big dreams. Chandika Hathurusingha’s students made a great start by defeating Afghanistan in the first match of the season. That one win is over. Then six consecutive losses in the group stage rang the farewell bell. Although the hope is this much – Bangladesh will win the remaining two matches and build the top eight position in the points table. And it will be sure to play in the 2025 Champions Trophy.

But, it is difficult to say for sure whether Bangladesh will get a place in the Champions Trophy even if they win the last two matches. Because the two teams have already confirmed their position in the fight to get a place in the top four of the World Cup. India and South Africa have already reached the semi-finals of the World Cup. Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan and Afghanistan are fighting for the remaining two spots.

On the other hand, the last four teams Sri Lanka, Netherlands, Bangladesh and England have a different fight. The World Cup campaign has already ended. Semi has no chance. Their fight is to make it to the Champions Trophy. Sri Lanka and the Netherlands, who are seven and eight, have four points each. Ninth and tenth place Bangladesh and England have two points each.

If Bangladesh can win their last two matches then the points will be six. However, the Champions Trophy will not be guaranteed. Bangladesh will have to look at England, Sri Lanka and the Netherlands. Any two of the three teams must lose their last two matches. Then Bangladesh can play in Champions Trophy. If you win another match, you have to look at the net run rate.

Sri Lanka and Australia are the opponents of the last two matches of Bangladesh in the World Cup.
