But Shakib Al Hasan gave up that dream after playing 7 matches and losing 6 times in a row. Bangladesh is the first to withdraw from the World Cup.
Many people think that the Tamim Iqbal controversy before leaving the country also had an influence behind this collapse. Apart from captain Shakib, many are blaming coach Chandika Hathurusingha for not keeping this opener in the World Cup squad. Many are angry and disappointed with the failure of Bangladesh under this Lankan coach. After the World Cup, coach Hathuru will be in charge of the team or not.
Bangladesh will play the next match in the World Cup against Sri Lanka in Delhi. Before that match, the journalists had a long talk with the team director of the Bangladesh team, Khaled Mahmud Sujan. He was asked about the current status of the party. Journalists want to know about coach Hathuru’s future in the Bangladesh team. In this context, Sujan said, ‘It is too early to say this, because the World Cup is not over yet. If I say something, it will send a bad message to everyone. Hathuru is still our head coach, we have to have that faith in him till the end of the World Cup. BCB will no doubt decide everything after the World Cup. It doesn’t matter what I said personally.’
The team director also said about Bangladesh’s World Cup failure, ‘After the World Cup, there should be a postmortem about why we failed. There was so much hope about us, we will play the semi-final, there Bangladesh team is doing 9-10 before England. England have played one match less, if they win, maybe we will go down to number 10.’
