World T20 record: ’07-2nd Round, ’09-1st Round, ’10-1st Round, ’12-1st Round, ’14-2nd Round

Strength: Batting in subcontinental conditions

Weakness: Fielding

Players to watch:

Tamim Iqbal: The left-handed opener can be brutal against any type of bowling attack. Iqbal has a strike-rate above 100 in T20 internationals and warmed up for the main round opponents with his maiden T20I century against Oman in the last qualifying match.

Shakib Al Hasan: The veteran allrounder’s left-arm spin will be more crucial than his batting prowess. He has an economy rate of under 7 runs an over in his 50 T20 internationals, showing his ability to pose a challenge to any batting lineup.
