Dhaka, Nov 29 (AFP) - A three-person committee including former captain Akram Khan will look into Bangladesh's disappointing World Cup, the country's cricket board said on Wednesday.

Bangladesh won two matches and lost seven at the one-day tournament in India in October-November, finishing eighth out of 10 teams.

The committee will "scrutinise the factors contributing to the team's underperformance", the Bangladesh Cricket Board said.

It was Bangladesh's lowest number of wins at a World Cup since 2003, when they failed to win a game.

They won three matches in each of the next four World Cups, in 2007, 2011, 2015 and 2019.

Expectations had been high in Bangladesh, especially after they finished third in the qualifying tournament, the ICC Super League, behind New Zealand and England.

They started the World Cup with a win over Afghanistan, before six consecutive losses took them out of contention for the race for the semi-finals.

Australia beat hosts India in the final.

    We need a probe to find out why top cricket playing nations like NZ, India, Australia ended at the top of the table and mediocre cricket playing nations like Bangladesh, SL, Netherlands ended at the bottom of the table. Do you think it's rocket science to work this out?
