TE24 Sports Desk:
Bangladesh are determined to get back on track in the first match of the two-match Test series against the West Indies today (Thursday) at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.
The match begins at 8 PM according to Bangladesh Time however to the mistake of Bangladesh fans, the match won’t broadcast live anyplace separated from West Indies.
Anything that it is, the Test group is quick to introduce another time, drove by Shakib Al Hasan, who was named as commander after Mominul Haque ventured down following an unfortunate batting structure.
Shakib’s eagerness to assume control over the captaincy gave Bangladesh another desire to restore the nation’s Test cricket in which they on numerous occasions demonstrated them very helpless. They up until this point played 132 Tests, since their rise to the cricket’s world class design in 2000 and won only 16.
The Tigers, as they were lovably called, lost a stunning number of 98 matches of which 45 losses stopped by an innings edge. They anyway drew 18 Test, a large portion of which civility to rain.
In any case, as Shakib assumed control over the captaincy for the third time and likely once and for all, there is beam of trust that his Midas Touch could revive the side in this configuration.
“In the event that Shakib truly needs, he can change the elements of Bangladesh’s Test group,” Bangladesh best captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza as of late said in his section in a paper.
First time when Shakib got the captaincy in 2009 during the West Indies visit, it came because of the injury of Mashrafe Bin Mortaza who harmed his knee during the principal day of the main Test.
Shakib drove the side from the front as Bangladesh made history by whitewashing the West Indies in two-match series. Shakib was then peeled off the captaincy in 2011 however back to the steerage again in 2018 against West Indies at home series. Under his captaincy, Bangladesh won the series by 2-0 interestingly after that authentic 2009 series.
That remains Bangladesh’s last Test series win against West Indies. Presently it is to see whether Shakib’s return as commander again against this recognizable rival changes Bangladesh’s karma. Bangladesh by and large played 18 Tests against West Indies and won four.
They lost 12 matches and drew two. The Tigers to be sure need a bit of karma after a lamentable excursion, under Mominul Haque who really was given captaincy briskly after Shakib was prohibited in 2019 by ICC following his inability to report the bad comes nearer from the bookies. Bangladesh got a paramount triumph against New Zealand under Mominul yet they lost some matches which they ought to have won.
The majority of the matches under his captaincy, Bangladesh lost from a triumphant position. The circumstance got deteriorated when Mominul neglected to spur the side even with his batting. His lean batting streak right now reached out to seventh consecutive single digit figure and in the event that the last 15 innings was thought about, he neglected to move beyond twofold digit score for multiple times.
Shakib’s most memorable undertaking will be to ingrain the certainty, which was lost subsequent to repeating disappointments. “Shakib is the one in particular who can make Bangladesh a power to deal with in Test cricket,” Mashrafe composed.
“Somebody like Shakib ought to do the captaincy to do well in Test cricket in light of the fact that the entire world knows his capacity.” While Shakib’s captaincy hoarded the spotlight, Bangladesh really has motivation to be stressed after Yasir Ali, who was considered as the substitution of Mushfiqur Rahim was sidelined because of injury. His nonattendance made a hole in the center request position.
Mushfiqur’s nonattendance for performing blessed Hajj is a major misfortune for Bangladesh, taking into account that he was in structure close by Liton Das in a batting line up whose top request players will quite often fizzle in pretty much every game. As of late in the last two Tests against Bangladesh lost four/five wickets prior to crossing 25 runs mark, which as per lead trainer Russell Domingo cost Bangladesh the Test match.
It will be the main occupation of Shakib – Domingo pair to fix as they need to usher another Test time.
