They bowled a number of short balls and loose deliveries, which were easy for the New Zealand batsmen to score off. Second, they were not able to take wickets at regular intervals. This allowed the New Zealand batsmen to build partnerships and score big. Third, they were not able to adapt to the conditions and bowl to their strengths.
Bangladesh’s bowlers are a relatively inexperienced group. They do not have a lot of experience of playing in high-pressure matches like the ICC World Cup. This lack of experience may have contributed to their poor performance against New Zealand.
Bangladesh’s bowling performance against New Zealand was very disappointing. They will need to improve their bowling performance if they want to challenge for a place in the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup 2023. Bangladesh’s bowlers need to be more disciplined, accurate, patient, and adaptable.
