CRICDOT DESK : National team all-rounder Mehdi Hasan Miraj said, “If we want to do better than expected in the World Cup, we have to score more than 300 runs.”

In Chittagong on the eve of the third match of the ODI series against Afghanistan, Miraj said that the batsmen get confidence when they run in the ODIs. If you go to play in big events, especially the World Cup, Asia Cup – since we have the ODI World Cup in front of us in India, but there you have to score 300 runs, chase 300 runs and score more than 300 runs. Because the wicket is good.

“If we can adapt from here and the wickets are good here, if we can adapt, it will be good for the World Cup or for a big event,” he added. Wickets are much better in the World Cup.

The wickets at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong have always been known to be great batting-friendly. However, the interesting thing is that after playing 22 ODIs here, Bangladesh managed to touch 300 for the first time in the second match of the current series against Afghanistan. The Tigers want to continue this 300-run streak in the World Cup.

By the way, since the 2019 World Cup, India have reached 300 in ODIs the most, 10 times in 26 matches. Then England and Bangladesh jointly. England has won 5 times in 18 matches. And Bangladesh has scored more than 300 runs 5 times in 20 matches.
