I think another reason may be a drop in interest in Bangladesh cricket in general.
There was a time where it seemed like Bangladesh cricket was in a genuine upward trend.
There were close matches against big opponents here and there.
There was excitement around new talents.
I personally used to stay awake for any match that Bangladesh played.

But the hope that we had that there will be a sustainable improvement in Bangladesh cricket has started to fizzle out.
The first class structure has not improved one little bit since 2000s.
There is not a single genuine test batsman. We only do good occasionally in one-day style test matches.
We even lost test to Afghanistan - a war torn country that hardly had a cricket culture even 30 years ago.
I think there are people like me who have resigned to the fact that Bangladesh will be perennial minnows in international cricket except for some occasions achievements, mostly based on individual performances.
