Bangladesh T20 World Cup Preview
Bangladesh have odds of 2501.00 on 10Cric to win the 2021 T20 World Cup.
Bangladesh have simply not had a good time at the T20 World Cup. They’ve shown over the years that they struggle to put in consistent efforts in this format. And it may be that perhaps they find it hard to compete with other sides in terms of batting power.
Still, they’re ranked sixth in the ICC rankings so that puts them ahead of the likes of Australia, the West Indies, and Sri Lanka. That said, this may be a better chance for them than if it was in say Australia, the original venue.
Bangladesh both bowl spin well and play it well as batsmen so the fact that it’s in the UAE may help their chase. But it’s still going to be very tough.

Bangladesh World Cup Betting: Players to watch
Shakib Al-Hasan – Shakib isn’t just Bangladesh’s best player now, he’s their best-ever player. A recent study showed he may just be the most valuable all-rounder ever to play Test cricket from a statistical point of view. And he’s certainly no slouch in T20 cricket. Quite the opposite. His batting and bowling figures are highly impressive as stand-alone numbers, let alone for an all-rounder. He’s also the side’s best fielder. And he comes into the tournament in decent form after a run in the side for KKR in the IPL. He’ll bat at three and bowl his four overs every game. How they wish they had another of him.
Mustafizur Rahman – The man they call ‘The Fizz’ is a real artist of his craft. A left-arm fast bowler, he made a name for himself for his tricky death bowling. He’s the sort of player who will bowl six completely different deliveries in an over, varying pace, line, and length. He also delivers the ball using different grips and keeps batsmen guessing. The Royals may have had a disastrous season in the IPL, but Rahman was solid and just about the only overseas player to always be picked. The strike rate of 14.9 in T20I cricket is excellent.
Mahmudullah – Experience goes a long way and the skipper has plenty of it. He’s played 102 T20Is and over 250 T20 games at the domestic level as a batting all-rounder who can contribute with some accurate off-spin. His numbers aren’t fantastic in T20I but he’s very much their go-to man in tough run chases. He does seem to have a knack for keeping a cool head under pressure. Hasn’t had too much experience of captaining the side so he’ll have that to contend with, as well.

Prediction for Bangladesh at T20 World Cup 2021
So, what do we make of Bangladesh World Cup odds of 2501.00?
Bangladesh are certainly not a team suited to chasing big totals. They’re also hamstrung by Tamim Iqbal’s decision to sit the tournament out. The opening batsman is a class act, and they don’t have many of them. He’ll be sorely missed. It would be a big surprise if they made it to the semis, forget about winning the trophy.
Bangladesh’s history at Previous T20 World Cups
Bangladesh have not made it to a single semi-final to speak of. And in 2014 things went from bad to worse. They hosted the tournament yet lost all four matches, to India, Pakistan, the West Indies, and Australia.
It was a similar story two years later, where they also lost all their four Group matches.
