Tanzim, Mahedi and Nasum bolster Bangladesh depth forward of World Cup

The India-Bangladesh recreation in Colombo had all of the tell-tale indicators of a typical tour-ending affair for an eradicated staff. Bangladesh are identified for poor performances within the final video games on tour. They made 5 adjustments on this inconsequential recreation. One was a compelled change, however the remainder appeared to be the staff administration testing their bench power.

Bangladesh rested their first-choice quick bowlers and gave alternatives to 2 top-order batters who had been warming the bench for many of the event. Additionally they handed an ODI debut to pacer Tanzim Hasan Sakib. With the World Cup squad but to be introduced, the Asia Cup and the upcoming three-match ODI collection in opposition to New Zealand in Dhaka are necessary for gamers, particularly these on the bench, to make a case for choice.

Nasum Ahmed, Mahedi Hasan and Tanzim contributed 87 runs from No 8, 9 and 10. Shakib Al Hasan and Towhid Hridoy struck fifties to get them out of one more top-order collapse however as soon as these two fell, Bangladesh had been observing one other freefall. However the lower-order batters performed a complete of 110 balls, hitting ten fours and two sixes to rescue the staff. Nasum saved one finish going along with his career-best 44 whereas Mahedi and Tanzim offered some fireworks in the long run.

With the ball, the trio accounted for 4 wickets from their mixed 26.5 overs, conceding runs at 4.91 per over. Nasum and Tanzim aren’t recognised allrounders however their cameos got here in useful as Bangladesh snatched a comfort win on Friday.

“[Beating India] is big for us to enter the World Cup,” head coach Chandika Hathurusinghe stated. “We go along with lots of confidence, particularly with what occurred on this event. We had a very good run as much as the Asia Cup however on this event, we struggled to placed on a collective effort. I’m not giving excuses, however we performed in numerous situations like Kandy, Lahore and Colombo. We had some accidents at essential instances. The pleasing factor for me is the depth of our different gamers. We may give three guys the chance to showcase their expertise and what they’re able to, considering of the World Cup choice. It offers us a very good depth to pick out the 15 gamers.”

Hathurusinghe had particular reward for Mahedi who was dropped after Bangladesh’s first recreation within the group stage in opposition to Sri Lanka. Lengthy thought-about a real allrounder, Mahedi nevertheless hasn’t been capable of nail down a spot within the XI.

“Total as a cricketer, I used to be very impressed along with his perspective and manner on the sector. I did not see him a lot earlier than, however he’s so assured when he’s bowling. He bowled some massive overs on this recreation. He bought us again into the sport with Shubman Gill’s wicket,” Hathurusinghe stated.

Tanzim’s efficiency stunned everybody together with Hathurusinghe who felt the newcomer did his World Cup possibilities a world of fine. “I do not assume he did his possibilities any hurt. He really put his fingers up for the World Cup choice. Till now, we had been considering of making an attempt to proceed with none accidents to our 4 quick bowlers.

“As you understand Ebadot [Hossain] is not there for the World Cup. I feel (Tanzim) confirmed us what he’s able to. I’m fairly assured that if I needed to depend on him, he has achieved properly for his possibilities,” he stated.

Although Bangladesh completed above Pakistan within the Asia Cup, not making the ultimate will nonetheless rankle throughout the staff. Hathurusinghe stated that there are issues within the batting division and though Hridoy continues to bat properly, he has to take his innings deep.

“(Hridoy) may be very clear about his position in addition to his recreation in the intervening time,” he stated. “He has been scoring runs since he made his ODI and T20I debut. Really, I’m a bit disenchanted with him in the present day. He bought fifty and threw it away. He may have gone on to place in a extra first rate rating. Total, he understands his position and his recreation.”
