Bangladesh has won all three of their recent T20I (vs Zimbabwe, Australia and New Zealand) series and their confidence is strong heading into the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Abdur Razzak, former Bangladesh spinner who is now a selector, is hoping for the best possible outcome and has stated that he will be satisfied if Bangladesh wins the title.

Before a big tournament, confidence is crucial, and the Tigers have recovered it by winning three straight series.

After being completely outclassed by New Zealand earlier this year, Mahmudullah's side bounced back by winning the T20I series against Zimbabwe in Zimbabwe and the home series against Australia and New Zealand. Probably the habit of winning games Bangladesh have been able to form is giving Razzak hope.

"The best possible team is going to the World Cup. I'll hope for a good result. There is no end to improvement. So I'll be happy if Bangladesh become champions. I believe everyone wants that. I want our team to play good cricket," said the former cricketer.

The Bangladesh cricket squad will depart for Oman on October 3 in the morning. After competing in the first round of the T20 World Cup, they must advance to the main tournament. Although it is technically known as the first round, it is essentially the tournament's qualification round.

In this round, Bangladesh will be in Group B. Bangladesh will face Scotland, Oman, and Papua New Guinea in the first round.
