Bangladesh T20 captain Shakib Al Hasan Saturday said Bangladesh now need to be like a baby learning to walk, take one step at a time, and then move forward in the shorter format of the game.

The Tigers are now preparing for the Asia Cup, starting on August 27 in the UAE. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) already announced a squad for the event.

Led by Shakib, Bangladesh will take on Afghanistan and Sri Lanka in the initial phase of the tournament.

"We played our first T20 in 2006. Since then, we could not do well in this format. We only made it to the final of the Asia Cup once," Shakib said.

The BCB appointed Sridharan Sriram, a former Indian cricketer, as the Tigers' T20 technical consultant. He will work with the Bangladesh team until the T20 World Cup.

However, Shakib said he is not expecting Sriram to do miracles overnight.
