Sports Desk, Arfin Shobuz, Staff Reporter, Dhaka Office: Alltimenews.com:- Turning wicket proves bane for Bangladesh, Offering a turning pitch, Bangladesh would possibly take a bold approach to get a end result and win the series however it finally backfired, mainly for the batsmen’s lack of potential to attract a pleasant line between the positivity and over-aggression.
And at the same time query got here to the fore: whether it changed into right to present such form of wicket to Sri Lanka who had been heavily used to it in contrast to the Australia and England. Going into the in shape, Bangladesh knew Sri Lanka have the sources to outsmart them on this kind of wicket.
But they didn’t care.
“In the sub-continent while Aussies or other teams come we deliver this wicket but Sri Lanka has a great spin assault. I don’t recognize why they gave a wicket like this,” Sri Lanka batsman Roshen Silva said as he is also looking the solution.
Bangladesh team management depended on their batsmen indeed, in particular on Tamim Iqbal who they believe is an professional on this type of pitch. Moreover in Sri Lanka of their a hundredth Test in shape, Bangladesh chased 191 runs within the fourth innings to win the match in Colombo. The wicket become much like what they may be now using in Mirpur. Tamim Iqbal produced a grasp-class 82 in the fourth innings to help the facet win the in shape with the aid of four wickets.
Tamim Iqbal additionally scored a century towards Australia on this kind of surface to help the facet win and his seventy eight and 71 in each inning helped the aspect cruise to a victory in opposition to England. So counting on Tamim Iqbal changed into not sudden. However the team control perhaps forgot, Shakib Al Hasan wasn’t in the side. Shakib too contributed closely, especially in bowling in those 3 victories.
So query once more got here why they took the danger whilst Shakib wasn’t here to give Tamim a assist. Bangladesh’s different plan revolved around Sabbir Rahman whom the group control fielded in location of Mosaddek Hossain Saikat no matter the latter played a defiant knock 53 ball-eight in the Chittagong Test. Mosaddek needed to block and block because if he were given out, Bangladesh had the danger to loss the match. However Mosaddek’s method wasn’t like by means of the management for a few unknown reasons. He changed into twelfth guy in this match however nevertheless he were given an approval to play a Dhaka Premier League fit on the second day of the Test. 13th man Tanbir Hyder become seen fielding at times.
Sabbir’s duty became to play aggressively. Because group control believes on this type of pitch, survival is more difficult process so there needs a batsman who can hit from the first ball. However their plan on Tamim and Sabbir didn’t work. Tamim couldn’t supply the side a proper begin whilst Sabbir couldn’t hit from the primary ball.
So without a doubt a plan B become wished and the bowlers could put into effect the plan B. But it was no longer clear what turned into the plan B. The bowlers couldn’t placed the ball in proper areas, while the pitch changed into of their favour. Clearly Shakib’s absence was felt. To compound the woe, the fielders ignored as many as seven catches and at the cease, Sri Lanka are on the verge of a victory.
“They positioned the ball in proper areas always what we will’t do,” Bangladesh off-spinner Mehidi Hasan Miraj admitted in which the problem lied. But nevertheless he became optimistic of cashing three hundred plus overall.
