Bangladesh Test captain Mominul Haque demanded he was agreeable to playing on pitches like the one where the principal Test against Pakistan was played, even as his side capitulated to an eight-wicket rout on Tuesday (November 30).
The Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury arena in Chattogram was certainly not a low and slow turning track that Bangladesh are accustomed to playing on, especially in the public capital in Dhaka. It functioned admirably in support of Bangladesh toward the beginning as they posted 330 in the primary innings, yet Shaheen Afridi shook them in the second, packaging them out for 157 and making ready for Pakistan’s large success.
“I would consistently really like to play in this sort of wicket since it was an optimal wicket for batsmen,” Mominul said. “It was anything but a twist amicable wicket, rather it was a level wicket. It was anything but a wicket where ball was abandoning the third or fourth day. On a turning wicket, four to five balls turn in an over while here presumably a couple of balls turned,” he said.
Mominul’s support for such pitches comes after Russell Domingo let it be known was a tough spot as the batsmen battle on turn well disposed pitches however on level surfaces, their bowling endures.
“Bangladesh is in an undeniably challenging circumstance. At the point when we play on great wickets, we probably won’t have the capability to bowl sides out, similar to Pakistan may have. At the point when we play on wickets that twist, we certainly have the capability to bowl sides out however at that point our batsmen can be tested too. Assuming you need to foster trust in our batting line-up, you need to get our batting numbers up. It is a predicament. Bangladesh seamers battle generally on great wickets. Our hitters appear to battle on turn wickets,” Domingo said after the fourth day’s play.
Mominul put Bangladesh’s loss down to a top request breakdown in the two innings and acknowledged his job in the disappointment. In the principal innings, Bangladesh had been down to 49 for 4 preceding Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim drove a fine recuperation. In the subsequent innings, when it made a difference more, they were down to 43 for 5 without having the option to plot a rebound.
“Our top request batting fell in the two innings and it was hard to make a rebound after that,” he said. “As I am the most experience hitters among the top requests, I ought to have been batting with greater obligation yet I fizzled.”
“We were never in full control in the match. Liton and Mushfique batted well as we had the option to acquire control at some stage. Taijul bowled splendid and that is the reason we were in the game till fourth day. On the off chance that the top-request could sparkle in the subsequent innings, the story could’ve been unique,” he added.
