Bangladesh have struggled since becoming a Test playing nation in 2000. They were only able to beat affiliate teams and consistently thrashed Zimbabwe since 2006. However, they have started to work on their confidence. Their victory over New Zealand last year will give them confidence to compete strongly against Test-ranked teams. Although New Zealand is currently at a low level, they are a strong One Day unit and Bangladesh won 4-0 in the five match series. The matches may have been close, with three won by less than 10 runs, but beating a Test team 4-0 no matter how close the matches were is leaps and bounds above being the perennial whipping boys of world cricket.Playing on home soil for the first time in a World Cup will do wonders for them. Unlike India and Sri Lanka, there won’t be the same level of expectation haunting their performances. They have a young team and are finally building some good quality batsmen at a young age. Shakib Al Hasan is 23 but already captain and has a decent record in ODI’s, averaging 34.98 in batting and 28.80 with his left arm orthodox spin. Also, 21-year-old Tamim Iqbal has quite a career set up for himself, already being named a Wisden Cricketer Test Player of the Year in 2010. He needs some improvement to his One Day stats but, with three ODI centuries already under his belt, he appears more than capable of providing some big knocks. Their biggest hurdle will be the lack of frontline pace bowlers.

Verdict: Improved performers lately. Playing on home soil will give them a boost but it will be difficult. Could potentially create some headaches for stronger teams in one of the most open World Cups since 1999.
