The Bangladesh Cricket Team is the sole representative of the People's Republic of Bangladesh in all events hosted by the International Cricket Council, the top cricket association in the world. According to Bangladesh cricket news, the Bangladesh cricket team players represent Bangladesh in all bilateral and international matches that are sanctioned by the International Cricket Council.
The tenth team overall and the first team in the twenty-first century to be designated as a Test-playing nation was the Bangladesh Cricket Squad. On November 10, 2000, Bangladesh played India in its first Test at the Bongobondhu National Stadium in Dhaka. The Bangladesh national cricket team reported that the match had ended after only four days and had been lost by nine wickets.
On the other hand, the Bangladesh Cricket Team had to wait more than 4 years before they were able to win a Test match, which they did against Zimbabwe on January 10, 2005, at Chittagong. Bangladesh had never previously defeated Zimbabwe in a two-game series prior to this one.
Bangladesh played their first One Day International cricket matches when they participated in the 1985–86 Asia Cup. Pakistan and Bangladesh competed in the first One Day International game on March 31, 1986, in Moratuwa. Pakistan triumphed by a 7-wicket margin.
Bangladesh's first limited-overs cricket victory didn't come for about 12 years. In their maiden One Day International game, they defeated Kenya by a margin of six wickets on May 17, 1998 in Hyderabad.
Bangladesh T20 cricket team played Zimbabwe in their first-ever T20I match on November 28, 2006, in Khulna, which Bangladesh won by a score of 43 runs. According to the Bangladesh cricket team update, it was one of the uncommon countries to win its first T20I match.
Since 1999, the Bangladesh Cricket Squad has competed in 40 matches across six World Cup tournaments. They have 14 victories but have never gone past the quarterfinals. According to cricket update Bangladesh, their best performance yet came when they reached the ICC World Cup Quarterfinals in 2015.
Seven ICC Champions Trophy matches have been played by the Bangladesh Cricket Team, but none of them has ended in a victory. They have competed in every tournament since the ICC Champions Trophy in 2000–2001, however, they have only won two games overall.
The Bangladesh Cricket team has so far competed in every T20I World Cup due to its position as a nation that participates in Test cricket. Although it has played in 25 games, it has only achieved success in 5. Their best performance to date was reaching the second round of the competition in 2007, 2014, and 2016.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board is the highest authority in charge of regulating all cricket-related activities in Bangladesh. It was established in 1972, acknowledged by the International Cricket Council as a regional member in 1977, and given full membership status on June 26, 2000. According to Bangladesh cricket news, the Bangladesh Cricket Board was granted affiliation with the Asian Cricket Council in 1983.
The board's president is Nazmul Hasan Papon, while the vice president is Abu Jahed Mohammad Nasir Uddin. The chief executive of the Bangladesh Cricket Board is Nizamuddin Chowdhury. The BCB's headquarters are located in Mirpur, Dhaka, near the Sher e Bangla Stadium.
Among the important tournaments organized by the Bangladesh Cricket Board are the National Cricket League, Bangladesh Cricket League, Bangladesh Cricket League T20, and Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League.
The Bangladesh Cricket Team is supported by a highly competent international staff. Khaled Mahmud Sujon, the director, oversees a variety of instructors and trainers.
The Bangladesh ODI Cricket Team uses flannel much as every other Test-playing team does. For the limited-overs format, the team wears a dark green jersey with little patches of blood red as the secondary color. The Bangladesh Cricket Board's insignia may be seen on the left side of the chest, while Bangladesh is depicted on the jersey against a crimson background.
The manufacturer of the uniform, BRAC Bank, has a logo on the right side of the breast. The sponsor's name is worn by right-handed batsmen on their left sleeve and by left-handed players on their right sleeve.
During ICC competitions, the tournament logo is sewn onto the right side of the jersey's chest. The kit sponsor's name is then transferred to the player's other sleeve. The athletes don dark green helmets, caps, and hats on the field. The team also wears a blood-red jersey with dark green patches on the sleeves as an alternative. This jersey is never worn; it was only worn once, at the 2019 ICC World Cup.
Till now, the Bangladesh Cricket Team has triumphed in 168 of its 581 games played in all sports. The side has only won 13 of the 116 Test matches it has played, but 125 of the 373 One Day International matches it has played. The Bangladesh Cricket Team has played its best cricket in the Twenty20 International format, winning 30 of 82 games.
Bangladesh set a record by losing 21 games in a row in Test cricket, all of which took place between 15 November 2001 and 19 February 2004. It continues to hold the record for the most Test Cricket games played without a victory, at 34 games. During these games, the Bangladeshi team participated in 31 defeats and 3 draws. The team that has allowed the most runs in Test Cricket to a night watchman is Bangladesh (Jason Gillespie, who scored 201 runs).
In ODI cricket, Bangladesh holds the top two spots for the most consecutive losses. According to Bangladesh cricket news, it lost 22 successive games between March 31, 1986, and May 14, 1998, and 23 straight games between October 8, 1999, and October 9, 2002.
Bangladesh is one of the rare teams to have won a match on the very last ball and has a solid track record in Twenty20 international matches. However, when the game's final ball was thrown, it was defeated four times.
The only ICC Trophy that the Bangladesh Cricket team has ever won was in 1997. In addition, Bangladesh competed in the 2016 Asia Cup finals, which remains the best performance in a multilateral event to date.
