Tanvir feels the team have not handled pressure situations well enough in the last two years, which has prevented them from going all the way. “My feeling is maybe we panic when it comes to crucial stages,” conceded the all-rounder. “Maybe because we don’t have enough experience in our dugout in terms of our playing XI. Yes, we don’t have big names but we play as a team.

“ I think we have the capability and we will try to win it this time somehow. We have to try to give something to Guyana.”

Tanvir finished as the leading wicket-taker in the 2017 tournament, and his five wickets for just three runs against Barbados was the best bowling performance of event.
