Dhaka: Bangladesh’s top all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan believes that the presence of him and his teammate Mustafizur Rahman in the dressing rooms of IPL teams will help them in the T20 World Cup starting October 17 in Oman and UAE. The country’s team will get help.
IPL 2021 will help
Shakib will play for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in IPL while Mustafizur will play for Rajasthan Royals (RR). Shakib said, ‘I hope IPL will help everyone. We will get a chance to spend time in those conditions and also get to play matches. Mustafizur and I can share this experience with other players.

will learn from other players
Shakib Al Hasan said, ‘We will understand the mentality of other players, what they are thinking about the World Cup and then we will inform our players about it.’ Shakib said that there will be no problem in adjusting to the situation as the teams will get a lot of time for this.
‘Will play the World Cup with confidence’
Shakib said, ‘Our team will reach Oman at least 15 to 16 days before the World Cup, which is a lot of time to adjust to the conditions and the wicket. I don’t think the pitches or conditions here will have any effect there. We have to create a winning mindset which will help us enter the World Cup with confidence.
