Bangladesh went to the World Cup with a dream of something great. But that dream is now a nightmare. After playing their first seven matches in the World Cup, Bangladesh managed to win only against Afghanistan. Had to lose against a team like the Netherlands.
The pace bowling department of Bangladesh was performing well for a long time. But the bowling department could not fulfill the expectations in the World Cup. But the batting department has sunk the most. Bangladesh’s top order going into the World Cup with veteran Tamim Iqbal out of the team has failed in almost every match. Which the team could not recover from later. This batting failure is the main reason for the loss in all six of the seven matches played so far. It is also shown in the statistics.
Bangladesh has had the worst batting in the World Cup so far (until the Bangladesh-Sri Lanka match). Bangladesh lost the most wickets in the first power play. Bangladesh lost 16 wickets in 7 matches in the first power play from 1 to 10 overs. That is 2.29 per match. No other team has lost so many wickets in the first power play.
Bangladesh is the most backward in run rate and strike rate. Bangladesh scored 73.45 runs per 100 balls. This is the lowest strike rate among the World Cup teams. As the only partner country to get a chance in the World Cup, the Netherlands is ahead of Bangladesh in terms of strike rate. The Dutch scored 73.78 runs per 100 balls.
Bangladesh has scored 4.61 runs per over in the World Cup so far. Bangladesh is at the bottom in terms of run rate. Netherlands scored 4.81 runs per over. Only Bangladesh and Netherlands scored less than 5 runs.
