The T20 World Cup 2021 is set to take place between October 18 to November 15 in Oman and the UAE

Bangladesh cricket team as part of their preparation for the T20 World Cup have played three T20 series, and won them all.

They started the winning trend in Zimbabwe with a 2-1 victory and continued it in Dhaka where they defeated Australia 4-1.

The side are currently playing a five-match series at home against New Zealand and have already won the series 3-1 with the last game set to take place Friday.

There is however, argument over the preparation process.

Bangladesh in the series against Australia and New Zealand took typical advantage of home condition, that is, playing on slow, low and turning wickets.

The team are said to be satisfied with the winning momentum as part of their preparation, rather than playing on true surfaces which will be in place in two host countries for the world event - United Arab Emirates and Oman.

The result –Bangladesh bowlers reigned supreme in these matches while the batting unit struggled.

The T20 World Cup 2021 is set to take place between October 18 to November 15.

“Winning is important regardless of the format of the game. Winning helps in gaining confidence while defeats are demoralizing. So that way, a winning habit helps you do well regardless the venue or the tournament. So definitely these wins [against Zimbabwe, Australia and New Zealand] will help the cricketers gain confidence,” chief selector Minhajul explained.

Former Bangladesh captain Minhajul claimed that Bangladesh will start with the main preparation for the T20 World Cup when in Oman.

Bangladesh team are likely to travel to Oman in early October where they will have a camp also involving three practice matches.

“We will start our preparation in Oman. We have never played in Oman so it tough to decide on the strategy before we see the condition there. I believe our cricketers are able enough to cope quick with the condition there,” said Minhajul.

Speaking on the preparation of the batting unit, Minhajul said, “We still have a month for the tournament to start so I think there is enough time for them to build up and refresh themselves. I was a batsman myself, so if you can have your own planning and a system, you can do well.”

Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup will first have to play the qualifiers and then the main event if they finish first or second in the group.

Bangladesh in the first phase of the competition have been slotted in Group B and will contest with Oman, Papua New Guinea and Scotland.

In Group A Ireland, Netherlands, Namibia and Sri Lanka will fight it out for two more places in the Super 12s.
