Shakib Wants Balance Between Bat and Ball in the World Cup

Eight out of the top ten highest team scores in the IPL belong to the 2024 season. In the recently concluded season, bowlers didn’t fare too well. However, Shakib Al Hasan hopes for different pitches in the ninth edition of the T20 World Cup, which will be held in the USA and West Indies. The 37-year-old all-rounder desires a balance between bat and ball.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is publishing a series of interviews with cricketers before the T20 World Cup. Coaches and players with the team are sharing their thoughts. On Friday, Shakib spoke in the BCB’s ‘The Green Red Story’.

“I think the T20 format is an extended version of the ODI. What would happen if you cut overs is what happens here. It’s very thrilling. The spectators love it. The only thing I hope for is equal competition between bat and ball. The tournament should not be one-sided. Usually, that never happens in the World Cup. I believe it will be the same this time too.”

Which job is harder, being a cricketer or a member of parliament? Shakib says, “To me, being a member of parliament is harder because it is new to me. Since I have been playing cricket since I was young, I find it much more comfortable. So, if I compare the two, being a member of parliament seems harder to me.”

In the World Cup, Bangladesh’s four opponents in Group D are South Africa, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and the Netherlands. Najmul Hossain Shanto’s team will play their first two group matches in the USA and the next two in Kingstown, St. Vincent.
