Bangladesh

Probably the most inexperienced of the lot. Having participated in just four Champions Trophy tournament, twice have they made it to the Group Stage from qualifiers, but failed to roll on further. This summer will mark the return of Bangla Tigers to the tournament, with their last appearance going back in 2006.
The side does boast the likes of Shakib Al Hasan, their most experienced player and an impressive all rounder. The bowling department holds some strong young talent – Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed and Mehedi Hasan.
The team holds the identity of creating some of the greatest upsets in cricket – 2015 Worl Cup, where Bangladesh defeated England in a group stage tie. Fans will surely be expecting more of such miraculous performance off them this term.
