ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Bangladesh Squad

The Bangladesh Cricket Board has announced the squad of 15 players who will be representing the Red-Green flag at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022. The tournament will be held in Australia from October.

The Bangladesh squad includes some familiar faces, as well as some new faces. All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan will be captaining the team while wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim won’t be part of the team as he took controversial retirement from this format recently, and Mahmudullah has
been dropped.

While talking about Mahmudullah’s exclusion from the squad, Nazmul Hossain, the BCB president, called it “a team for the future”, saying that the plan is to build towards the 2024 T20 World Cup.

According to the Sport News BD experts, BCB was looking for an excuse to drop him from the team as he was among those five senior players who contributed to Bangladesh’s win.

Mahmudullah has vast experience in this format and he is the fourth-most-capped T20I cricketer in the world. We have seen him playing and performing in franchise cricket of this version around the globe, especially in CPL where right now Shakib Al Hasan is busy with his new team.

It is also true that this senior player has struggled in this format and we have seen that pressure in the Asia cup too. His poor performance in the Asia cup has also made his position vulnerable.

Our experts say the team management and selectors of the Bangladesh cricket may have a great role in his omission.

Minhajul Abedin said, “Our T20 consultant [Sriram] has given us a one-year plan, which will take us in a different direction, and we have agreed with him.” “We haven’t been doing well in T20Is.

We have also had to deal with plenty of injuries in the last six months. The decision to drop Mahmudullah was taken after speaking to everyone concerned.”

Apart from Mahmudullah news, the selectors have included some players who didn’t perform in the Asia cup which gave the fans a little shock.
