Bangladesh at Cricket World Cup Player by Player Analysis: Bangladesh has announced its 15-man squad for the World Cup 2015. Mashrafe Mortaza has been retained as the Captain after white-washing Zimbabwe 5-0 in the home series while Shakib Al Hasan will serve as vice captain. Bangladesh face the challenge of Afghanistan, Australia, Sri Lanka, Scotland, England and New Zealand in the group stage of this World Cup but the Chief Selector Faruque Ahmed, who also selected the squad for World Cup 2007 where Bangladesh entered the second round, said that their main goal for this world cup is to in any case win their two games against Afghanistan and Scotland and then hope for an upset against a top side.

Fans of a specific country are very excited about their team’s chances in mega-events. A team’s chance to win rests in its player’s individual performances. Like drop by drop makes a pond, player by player makes a combined team effort. Israr Ahmed Hashmi has combined the meticulous data of Bangladesh’s representation at the World Cup. The stats include each player’s contribution in Australia and New Zealand as well as in previous world cups.
