From minnows to a serious force in the subcontinent, Bangladesh have come a long way. They reached the quarter-finals in the previous edition of the ICC World Cup – in 2015 – and will be determined to take that one step further in the ICC World Cup 2019.

Ahead of the global showpiece event, they received a huge shot in the arm when they defeated West Indies in a rain-hit final to clinch the Tri-Nation Series at Dublin.  It was their first triumph in a multi-nation tournament after reaching six ODI finals in the last 10 years, a feat that will give Mashrafe Mortaza‘s men the right impetus going into the showpiece event.
