BANGLADESH entered this year’s T20 World Cup hoping for a breakthrough campaign.
But they may yet fail even to qualify for the Super 12.
The Tigers started their World Cup with a shock defeat to Scotland, which has left them with work to do to progress to the latter stages of the tournament.
Part of that work was done with a 26-run victory over hosts Oman, but they’ll need a comprehensive win over Papua New Guinea to keep their fate in their hands.
How can Bangladesh qualify for the T20 World Cup Super 12?
Bangladesh will qualify for the Super 12 regardless of other results if they beat Papua New Guinea by 15 runs or chase their total in 18 overs.
Should they fail to do that, they will have to wait on the result between Scotland and Oman.
If Bangladesh beat Papua New Guinea and Oman fail to beat Scotland then Bangladesh will qualify.
Should both Bangladesh and Oman win, qualification will come down to net run rate between those two sides and Scotland.
