Host nation Bangladesh has appeared in all four ICC World Twenty20 tournaments and the last four ICC Cricket World Cups, stretching back to 1999. A year later it acquired ICC Full Member status. It won its first ICC World Twenty20 match in 2007, beating West Indies by six wickets at Johannesburg, but has lost all ten of its fixtures in the competition since then. In the 2012 tournament it lost to New Zealand and Pakistan, though in the latter fixture, Shakib Al Hasan made 84 which was, albeit for only two months, the highest T20I score by a Bangladesh batsman. Bangladesh’s improved form in 2013 under the captaincy of Mushfiqur Rahim across all formats, particularly at home, should provide the team with confidence. In October, against New Zealand at Chittagong, off-spinner Sohag Gazi became the first man in history to score a century and take a hat-trick in the same Test. The two-match was drawn 0-0 and Bangladesh followed up by whitewashing the Black Caps 3-0 in the subsequent ODI series.
