Now Bangladesh team has become the first team to be out of the race for the semi-finals of the World Cup 2023. Speaking at the post-match press conference, Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan revealed the reason behind the defeat.

In the press conference after the match, Shakib said, “We have to think about our top-order batting. The team is not getting runs from the top order batsmen. We had enough runs to win but once again we lost wickets in a hurry. I am very disappointed with the way the team played. Our batsmen are not able to make big partnerships.

Talking about his batting, Shakib said, “I am lucky to score some runs for the team. I was in the top-4. I feel very good about this. At this time we do not need to worry too much. We will continue to do so in future also.

Bangladesh has lost 6 consecutive matches in the World Cup 2023. The team’s only win was against Afghanistan. Bangladesh made a great start to the tournament by winning their first match of this World Cup against Afghanistan, but later they could not maintain their momentum. Now after losing 6 consecutive matches, Bangladesh’s hopes of reaching the semi-finals are also over.
