Bangladesh is the worst in the first power play in the World Cup

The quote “শেষ ভালো যার, সব ভালো তার” (The one who finishes well is the best) is well-known, and it holds a special significance in the context of the ongoing World Cup. The statistics, match results, and points table are all indicative of this.

At the moment, two teams, England and Bangladesh, are at the bottom of the points table. Both these teams have bid farewell to the competition officially from the very beginning. Social media is buzzing with discussions and debates about the competition between Bangladesh and England to avoid being the last in this World Cup.

In this World Cup, Bangladesh has played seven matches so far, and in these seven matches, they have lost the most wickets within the first 10 overs, a total of 16 wickets, which is an average of 2.29 wickets per match.

Following closely behind Bangladesh is England, who have lost 15 wickets within the first 10 overs, averaging 2.14 wickets per match. Among the ten teams, Sri Lanka is also in the same category, having lost 14 wickets. The Netherlands has lost 12 wickets to qualify for the first powerplay. The point table shows that these four teams are currently struggling.

When it comes to struggling at the start and not being able to recover, Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim are at the forefront. Despite losing the most wickets per match within the first 10 overs, the team’s overall performance hasn’t improved significantly.

Afghanistan has the lowest run rate in this World Cup, scoring just 4.61 runs per over on average. Bangladesh is also at the bottom of the list with their over rate, and only the Netherlands has a lower over rate than Bangladesh. The Dutch team has an average of 4.81 runs per over.

In terms of quick scoring, South Africa is leading with an over rate of 6.92 runs per over. In this World Cup, South Africa has scored 300 runs or more in five matches, the highest among all teams.

Bangladesh’s inability to score quickly is evident, and they have not been able to break free from their tendency to focus on stability rather than aggressive play. Their batting lineup has struggled in the powerplays, and they are yet to break free from this pattern.

Bangladesh’s openers, Liton Das and Tamim Iqbal, have not been able to provide the desired start in most matches, and there is no alternative opener in the squad. Even though Mehedi Hasan Miraz was tried as an opener in some matches, he couldn’t make an impact.

In conclusion, Bangladesh’s struggle with early wickets, low strike rate, and run rate are clearly affecting their performance in the World Cup. They need to work on improving these aspects to be more competitive in future tournaments.
