Warning People Not to Have High Expectations of Bangladesh, Shakib Al Hasan Calls It “Living In Fool’s Kingdom”

Shakib does not anticipate a significant improvement in their performance during the next Asia Cup, which will get underway on August 27. He believes that the Twenty20 World Cup would be a better indicator of how far they have come as a team.

Shakib al Hasan has been named the new captain of Bangladesh’s Twenty20 International team. However, he has cautioned the people of Bangladesh not to anticipate an immediate shift in their fortunes, adding that neither he nor any other one individual can bring about such a change.

He remarked that those who are “living in fool’s paradise” because they expect a fast turnaround from their team are “living in fool’s paradise.” Shakib has been given the role of captain for Twenty20 Internationals for Bangladesh till the 2022 Twenty20 World Cup, which will take place in Australia during the months of October and November. Additionally, the board chose Sridharan Sriram to serve as the organization’s technical director.

However, Shakib does not anticipate a significant improvement in their performance during the forthcoming Asia Cup, which will begin on August 27. He stated that the Twenty20 World Cup would serve as a more accurate measure of their level of progress.

“I don’t have any objectives. My primary objective is for our team to perform well in the World Cup, and these games serve as practise for that competition “Cricbuzz reported that Shakib had said the following to the reporters.

“If someone thinks that I can change things within one or two days or that someone else will come to alter it, then we are living in a fool’s kingdom,” he remarked. “If someone thinks that I can change things within one or two days, then we are living in a fool’s kingdom.”

Shakib continued, “If you are able to think practically, you will see our actual growth when the team really plays well at the World Cup in three months’ time.”

He continued by saying that Bangladesh was “far behind” in the format they were using.

“As you can see, we first performed a version like this in 2006. Since then, we have not had very successful results, with the exception of the final of the Asia Cup. We are really far behind in this version from that moment on, and as a result, we have no choice but to begin again from scratch “Shakib remarked.

“When a newborn starts walking for the first time, [the first] steps are quite difficult, but gradually things become easier. I hope that we will also be able to start walking step by step like a baby, and then we can move forward.”
