Bangladesh's international cricket schedule for 2020
- Here's a look at Bangladesh's complete international cricket schedule for 2020.
Bangladesh Cricket Team emerged as one of the most improved teams during the last decade. The Bangla Tigers could not make much impact in the 2011 World Cup but they made it to the quarterfinals of the succeeding editions. Besides, they even qualified for the 2012, 2016 and 2018 Asia Cup final.
Mashrafe Mortaza, Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim have been the four cornerstones of the team but now, the next generation is taking things over. The biggest challenge facing Bangladesh would be the ICC World Test Championship. Though they took giant strides in the limited overs circuit, Bangladesh achieved little success in the longest format of the game.
