Bangladesh Cricket Team have been roaring like a Royal Bengal Tiger in the true sense. Especially, in the white-ball format, they have been unbeatable at home for quite some time now. With the teams like India, and England visiting them for the limited overs series have struggled to beat them. In the recently concluded ODI super league, they showed their dominance in the 50-over format. 

They're hot favourites this time to make the cut for the knockout stage. With the World Cup taking place in India, in a similar condition to Bangladesh, their chances have increased multiple folds. As a team, they're quite strong, they know the conditions better than many cricketers. They will be eager to better their 2015's quarter-final performance this time. 

This run of play hasn't come in a year or two. BCB has indulged its heart and soul to make things better. From producing World Class cricketers to beating India, and England in World Cup matches they have come a long way. On this path, they have got the services of some wonderful cricketers in World Cup matches.

Let's take a look at some of the best performances by Bangladesh players in ODI World Cup:

Mohammad Saifuddin belongs to the rare category of fast-bowling all-rounders from the sub-continent. The Chittagong-born cricketer created impressions and early excitement in the Bangladesh cricket fraternity as soon as he made his debut. On the brink of impressive performances in age-group cricket, he was fast-tracked to the national squad. Saifuddin was drafted into the squad touring the UK for the Cricket World Cup 2019. 

Having no prior experience bowling in this condition, he still excelled in his performances. Playing his first World Cup, he had the nerves under control. Though he conceded 7.18 runs per over, he was taking wickets at regular intervals. He used his height quite efficiently to get purchase off the surface quite well. 

With the bat in hand, he had a sensational half-century against India at Birmingham. Even his knock against New Zealand at the Oval was instrumental in getting Bangladesh close to the 250-run mark. The all-round performance he had in that World Cup, gave Bangladesh high hopes of a genuine match-winner in the years to come. But since then, Saifuddin has fallen behind the radar. He last played for the Bengal Tigers almost two years back.
