Considering the last few ODI World Cups, they have not had a good time this time. They have won only two out of nine matches in the round robin league. The Bangladesh team is returning home today after the World Cup.
The Liton-Miraj was scheduled to depart from Pune, India on a Bangladesh Biman flight at 6 am today. They were supposed to reach the country around 9 am. However, the Bangladesh team’s flight was delayed by 1 hour. As a result, their plane reached the country after one-and-a-half hours.
According to BCB sources, the cricketers of the Bangladesh team will be resting for a few days after returning home. They will start their preparations at the end of this month with the Test series against New Zealand ahead of them. However, except for Chandika Hathurusinghe, the rest of the coaching staff is going on a vacation for a few days. Pace bowling coach Alan Donald’s Bangladesh chapter ends in India.
After the World Cup, the New Zealand Test team will come to Bangladesh on November 21. They will play a two-day warm-up match on November 23 and 24. The first Test between Bangladesh and New Zealand will start in Sylhet on November 28. The last Test will start in Mirpur on December 6.
