Bangladesh has always been considered as the weakest among the four top cricketing nations in Asia. The recent Asia Cup played in Bangladesh must have created second thoughts in everyone's mind. The team that has the poor record in the Asia cups was never considered to compete let alone win games in this edition of the Asia Cup. But, surprisingly, the Bangladeshis have out-perfomed themselves.
Bangladesh started with a closely competed game against Pakistan. Where they lost to Pakistan by 21 runs, but they did manage to bring panic to the Pakistani ranks. The thing about their newly reformed team is that they are much more settled than any of the other teams. They have some amazing players like Shakib Al Hassan who has played specatcularly throughout the past few years and Tamim Iqbal who continues to blossom. Some new additions to the team like Nasir Hossain has bore-fruit for the team. This new Bangladeshi team continues to improve and the support they've had from their fans clearly tells that Bangladesh is soon going to be a force to reckon with.
The most amazing feats Bangladesh have achieved have really mesmerized the whole world. They did not just beat India and Sri Lanka but the way they have played their cricket is simply mind-blowing. The settled batting order and the amazing bowling partnerships between the spinners have more than just won games for Bangladesh. The other noticeable improvement in the current Bangladeshi side is the fielding. Young guns like Nasir Hossain and Mahmudullah have really transformed their fielding. This makes them much more dangerous and difficult to score against since the spinners have done a remarkable job.
