In the three-match ODI series against England, Bangladesh head coach Chandika Hathurusingha is not prepared to put too much pressure on his players. Instead, the head coach wants to take advantage of the chance to “discover the gap” between the teams and determine how to close it.
If we have to push ourselves for something, that’s not the right motivation (England). We always want to do well because we are playing for the national squad. They are the global champs. One team is competing elsewhere, and another one is present. Their range of talent is astounding. We want to assess our situation and determine the distance we still need to cover. We’ll feel more confident if we do well under these circumstances “Hathurusingha spoke with reporters prior to the series on Tuesday at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.
“In the previous few days, I believe we have adequately prepared. We held workshops to simulate matches and practise matches. I was quite pleased by the guys’ level of dedication. They appear to be well-prepared, he added. The fact that Bangladesh has won seven straight ODI series at home after dropping a three-match ODI series 1-2 to the same opposition in 2016 gives them confidence. Along with that, they have also consistently performed in ODIs outside of their home country. Hathurusingha wasn’t quite prepared to go too far, though.
“We are operating at full capacity. They may not have arrived at their full potential. They include some Test cricketers. I support our abilities and power. never before in one single in one one one at one at one at one at one at one at one in one in one in one in one in one in one in one in one in one in one in one in one in one s one one one one one
They have some of the best pace attacks in the world. On this tour, there are three spinners and five fast bowlers. Playing their quick bowlers in this series will be difficult.
“They have gained significant depth in English cricket. They are every Test-playing nation’s envy. By the time my term is out, I hope we can leave something behind.”
According to Mustafizur Rahman, Hathurusingha had enormous success during his first tenure, which ended six years ago, but the cutter master seems to have lost part of his allure. The person who granted Mustafizur his international break now appears confidence in the pacer’s ability to perform effectively.
When in top form, Musafizur is among the best bowlers in the world. When he started, we won the India series (a three-match ODI series in 2015). Hathurusingha stated that he was currently returning to that shape. In the most recent India series, he bowled exceptionally effectively. We will attempt to use him as a strike bowler because he consistently bowls during critical situations.
Hathurusingha stated that as long as the game is not affected, he is not very concerned by the conflict between Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal, which was revealed by Cricbuzz.
“Seven days have passed since I started my employment. I have been in locker rooms and teams where there is conflict among the players. Nonetheless, they play as a unit while they are outside. That’s what you anticipate when you compete for your country’s squad. Going out for dinner does not need you to be best friends. I don’t view it as a concern as long as (the team) is not affected by it “Hathurusingha remarked. The same ideas were previously expressed by ODI captain Tamim Iqbal.
Hathurusingha added that he thinks the moment is right to form a leadership team for the following generation. Following a practise, Hathurusingha had a lengthy meeting at the SBNS with six cricketers, including Liton Das, Mehedi Hasan Miraz, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim, and the three seniors who were still present.
“It is not difficult. It’s an obligation. Our best four seniors have played for 15 to 17 years, as far as we know. They won’t play another 10 years. All of the future generation of leaders needs to be discussed right away. I’m not required to choose them. In terms of their actions and performance, they choose for themselves. Additionally present were Litton, Miraz, and Shanto. Fizz and Taskin were in the gym “said he.
In terms of mentality, how they train and behave in the changing room, as well as their performance, they are putting their hands up to be the leaders for the future phase of Bangladesh cricket.
“Their comprehension of their jobs has improved. I was really struck by how kids take responsibility for how they want to prepare. It makes me really happy. Even with young children, you don’t need to micromanage them. They are aware of their respective roles and how to prepare,” he said.
