The captain of the Bangladesh cricket team, Mushfiqur Rahim, is worried about the recent performances of his bowlers in the shortest form of the game.

The Bangladeshi bowlers have gone for a lot of runs in the T20 games that they have played of late and with the T20 World Cup around the corner, that’s not a good thing.

A few weeks back, Bangladesh had played a 2-match T20 series against New Zealand and they had given away more than 180 runs in both those games.

Bangladesh is not in the main draw of the T20 World Cup 2014. They will have to play in the qualifying round first and if they do well there, they will make it to the main draw.

Talking to the reporters about the T20 World Cup yesterday, Mushfiqur said, “I think bowling is our main concern at the moment. We haven’t bowled that well in the games that we have played in the recent times and we need to improve in that department. We are not lacking time. So, if we work hard, we can rectify that weakness of ours.”

“In T20s, you will go for runs at times, but, the thing that you need to learn as a bowler is how to control the damage.”

“Yorker is a very effective delivery in the T20s or in any form of the game for that matter. If you are good at bowling yorkers, you can stop the run flow. Our bowlers should practice that delivery in the nets.”

The current position of Bangladesh in the ICC World T20 rankings is not that good. They are at no. 10, even below Ireland.

The team which is topping the ICC World T20 rankings at the moment is Sri Lanka.
