Bangladesh cricket team’s experienced all-rounder player Shakib Al Hasan has given a stern warning to the teams participating in IPL 2021 and then before the T20 World Cup. Shakib has said that his team now has a winning mindset and is now ready to give tough competition to all the teams. The star all-rounder said about the IPL that it will benefit the players of his team a lot. Bangladesh recently defeated Australia 4-1 and New Zealand 3-2 at home in the T20I series. However, scores have remained low in both the series and Shakib seems to be worried about it.
According to the Daily Star report, Shakib said in the press conference, ‘Almost all the players who have played in the last 9-10 matches are in off form. If a batsman plays 10-15 matches on these wickets then his career will be ruined. But let’s not read much about them. Those who are in the team have the ability to win for the country. Everyone is doing their best from their position. I am sure all the teams will benefit from IPL. We will play in the conditions of the UAE where the T20 World Cup is to be held. Mustafizur Rahman and I can share our IPL experience with other players as well. We will get to know about the mindset of other players, what they are thinking about the World Cup and then tell our players about it.
