1st game vs Netherlands on a Uneven pitch with Cloudy conditions.

Netherlands won the toss & elected to bat first.

The Dutch got off to a steady start with J.Hendrix and A.van der Gilchrist laying a solid foundation. Hendrix's composed innings of 58 runs off 89 balls and van der Gilchrist's brisk 64 off 71 balls propelled the Dutch side to a promising position, reaching 200/4 off 43 overs and looking set for a final flourish. However, a flurry of late wickets, including key dismissals of van der Gilchrist and Langeveld, derailed their progress. Despite the late setbacks, the Dutch managed to post a competitive total of 237/9 off 50 overs with S.Dhoni & T.Rafique grabbing 3 wickets each.

Bangladesh’s chase began on a shaky note with the early loss of a couple of wickets. However, a resilient partnership between I.Mabud and H.Singh steadied the innings. Opener Mabud provided crucial support with 65 off 88 balls & Singh's composed knock of 76 off 97 balls anchored the innings. Despite a little wobble with key wickets falling, T.Rafique 25* (27) and K.Rahman 20* (21) played vital cameos towards the end to help guide Bangladesh to a hard fought victory. Bangladesh finished on 238/5 off 47.5 overs, winning by 5 wickets.

2nd game vs England on a Flat pitch with Humid conditions.

Bangladesh won the toss & elected to bat first.

Bangladesh endured a shaky start, losing wickets at regular intervals & found themselves struggling at 99/6 at one stage. However, some lower-order resistance mainly from V.Badhani who contributed with 67 off 74 balls helped Bangladesh post a below par total of 196/10 off 44.5 overs, with the tailenders making a commendable effort to rescue the innings.

England got off to a solid start, with opener L.Cullen anchoring the innings with a composed half century. Despite losing a few wickets, England maintained control of the chase, with captain A.Tunks leading from the front with an unbeaten 65 off 63 balls. They comfortably reached the target, finishing on 197/4 off 39.4 overs, securing a convincing 6 wicket victory over Bangladesh.

3rd game vs Canada on a Dry pitch with Humid conditions.

Bangladesh won the toss & elected to bat first.

Bangladesh got off to a steady start, with opener I.Mabud laying a solid foundation with a composed 40 off 58 balls. However, a couple of quick wickets put them under pressure before M.Khan and T.Rafique combined forces to stabilise the innings with a crucial partnership. M.Khan played a pivotal knock of 87 off 93 balls, providing the backbone for Bangladesh's innings. With a final flourish in the last 10 overs, Bangladesh managed to post a competitive total of 241/8 off 50 overs.

Canada endured a disastrous start, losing wickets at regular intervals. Despite some resistance from the middle order, they found themselves struggling at 130/7 off 35 overs. However, the emergence of spin prodigy S.Woodward changed the course of the innings. Woodward played a sensational knock, scoring 87 off 87 balls, attempting to steer Canada towards the target. Nonetheless, Bangladesh's bowling attack proved too strong in the end, as they bundled out Canada for 208/10 off 47.1 overs, securing a 33 run victory.

Heading into the crucial final match of the World Cup group stage, Bangladesh currently sit 3rd in the table, with 10 points from 2 victories, 1 draw, and 1 loss. Their opponent in this decisive encounter is the table topping UAE. Both teams are vying fiercely for a spot in the semi-finals. A triumph against UAE would secure our passage into the semi-finals.

Final game vs UAE on a Hard pitch with Hot conditions.

Bangladesh won the toss & elected to bat first.

Bangladesh got off to a blazing start, opener I.Mabud led the charge with a magnificent century, scoring 111 off just 100 balls, setting the tone for the innings. He was well supported by F.Khan, who contributed a valuable 41 runs, and F.Mortaza, adding 30 runs to the total. The highlight of Bangladesh's innings was the blistering knock by wicketkeeper M.Hassan, who smashed 96 off just 75 balls, propelling Bangladesh to a commanding total of 366/6 off their allotted 50 overs.

UAE had a shaky start, losing wickets at regular intervals. Despite some contributions from the top order, they found themselves struggling at 119/5 off 21 overs. However, W.Mohammed and R.Sameh combined forces to stage a fightback, putting on a commendable partnership. Mohammed scored 55 off 55 balls, while Sameh contributed a gritty 60 off 67 balls. Despite their efforts, the target proved to be too daunting as UAE eventually succumbed to the Bangladesh bowling attack. They were bowled out for 265/10 off 47 overs, falling short by 101 runs.

End of Tenure Review:

During this tenure, we have achieved significant milestones, transitioning from Division 3 to Division 1 in both ODI and T20 formats.

In our inaugural season, we showcased a formidable team, propelling us to consecutive promotions from Division 3 to Division 1 in ODIs and Division 3 to Division 2 in T20s, positioning us for a World Cup berth.

In our second season, we encountered greater challenges competing in a higher division with a comparatively weaker squad. Despite facing teams with superior ratings throughout the season, we displayed resilience, retaining our Division 1 status in ODIs. Additionally, we ascended to Division 1 in T20s, cementing our presence on the global stage.

The teams efforts resulted in commendable rankings, with our ODI team achieving a notable 6th position out of 18 teams, accumulating 47 points, while our T20 squad secured a respectable 5th position with 13 points. Despite the varying strengths of our team across seasons, we demonstrated our ability to adapt and fight, ultimately concluding our tenure in Division 1 for both formats.

Out of the 27 OD games (including the World Cup), we clinched victory in 15 matches, boasting a commendable win percentage of 55.55% with 1 Draw. In T20s, we dominated with a remarkable win percentage of 90%, winning 9 out of 10 games.

Now, as we find ourselves in Division 1, our focus shifts towards maintaining our position in this elite tier. We understand that the journey ahead will present new challenges, and the only direction from here is inevitably downward. However, we remain committed to preserving our status and competitiveness in Division 1 over the next two seasons with the same determination and resolve that has defined our journey thus far.
