Disappointing end of the World Cup: Shakib Al Hasan


Bangladesh have played some brand of cricket in the mega event by lefting big teams admiring them, from Fighting to Aussies, New Zealand and India to beating Windies, Afghanistan and Srilanka.

Losing with very narrow margin and winning with wider margin have come across to admire the team, Bangladesh could have won against Kiwis possibly but it was also the match between India and Bangladesh where they fought and fought hard before Bumrah came to yorked the tailenders.

We play brand of cricket but it really doesn’t matter as we couldn’t win, what matters the most in the mega event, we played great cricket but playing great cricket and winning are two different factors, the results went against us which is disappointing, says Shakib Al Hasan.

We had dreamt to win the World Cup but as race has already finished, can’t be more disappointed than realising this factor that we are out now, he added.

Bangladesh are most improved team since 2015, if we compare 2015 team to 2011, it will tell the whole story, and comparing 2019 to 2015 is something even bigger than expectations, they played beyond expectations and got some results as well, but few areas could have earned them a place in top four which is beyond reach now even if they ended their campaign with another win.
