Lack of confidence, poor mindset cost us dearly: Shakib
As Bangladesh's cricket has been at its lowest ebb, captain Shakib Al Hasan said the lack of confidence and poor mindset since the World Cup cost Bangladesh dearly. Bangladesh made a brilliant start to the World Cup before losing its way later and finished at eighth position. Later they were whitewashed by Sri Lanka in 3-0 series before losing the one-off Test to Afghanistan.
They got back to the winning way from the perpetual defeat of all format of cricket by defeating Zimbabwe but that victory was not convincing enough as the Southern African nations gave them massive scare. However they couldn't keep up the winning spree as they lost their last match yesterday against Afghanistan by 25 runs.
After the Test defeat against Afghanistan, Shakib said that only Tri-nation T20 series victory could bring back their lost pride.
