Who was spot on with his captaincy? And who was not?

The T20 World Cup finally came into the cricket calendar after a long gap of five years. With the teams being divided into two groups, “Group A” was being seen as the “Group of death”. This is because of the more established teams in the group.

South Africa received a lot of praise as they managed to win four games out of five. But, unfortunately, they were short on net run rate. In the first group, England and Australia managed to sneak into the semifinals.

In the second group, there was a huge shock as India lost to Pakistan and subsequently, after their loss against New Zealand, they were virtually out of the tournament. But, Kane Williamson’s team defeated the Afghanistan to ensure a semi-final spot. So, who was spot on with his captaincy?

Bangladesh has been the rising force in world cricket for quite some time. On their home turf, they have been competitive. In the last few years, they have managed to beat England in Test matches and giants like New Zealand and Australia in T20s.

So, the expectations were high from the South Asian country. But things went horribly wrong in Super 12 for Bangladesh as they were unable to win a single game. They lost by a huge margin and the man in the middle is their captain Mahmudullah.

He failed as a batsman and a captain. With a young team, he was supposed to lead from the front. But, the inability to beat the bigger teams meant that they were out of the tournament after a few matches. A net run rate of -2.383 shows how poorly they played in this T20 World Cup.
