I think Bangladesh are going to struggle, opines Hogg

Former Australian all-rounder Brad Hogg has predicted that Bangladesh would struggle in the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy which is scheduled to be played in England in the next month, according to online news portal.

Bangladesh Cricket Team has been in great form since ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 which was hosted by New Zealand and Australia. They showed some brilliant performances in that tournament including the victory over England which knocked Eoin Morgan’s team out of the tournament.

The new Asian power house also thrashed India, Pakistan and South Africa in their home series. But still they could not impress the former Aussie cricketer.

In a interview with a Mumbai based newspaper, Brad Hogg was asked that which team he thinks would win the Champions Trophy 2017 and the reply was very disappointing for the Bangladeshi fans.

“There are a number of teams. I can’t pick the winner. But I think Bangladesh are going to struggle in those conditions over there (in England),” Hogg replied.

However, the quirky left-arm spinner, thinks Australia is the most favourite team for the upcoming tournament.

“I think Australia have the team to take it out (to win). India are gonna be really competitive. South Africa are coming of age, they have a good team all across the board,” Hogg told.
