In recent times, Bangladesh have punched above their weight to shed the tag of underdogs, showing marked improvement across all formats. At the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021, they have a golden chance to showcase their degree of improvement in the shortest format of the game. Bangladesh head into the tournament with nine T20I wins in the calendar year, only behind South Africa who have 12. In fact, since losing to New Zealand in March away from home, Bangladesh have been on a fantastic roll in T20Is, registering series wins over Zimbabwe (2-1), Australia (4-1) and New Zealand (3-2).
