With the main game starting at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua next Thursday, the Bangladeshi players seem to be happy with their groundwork for the upcoming two-match Test series against the West Indies.
The reason for their satisfaction with the preparation was the three-day practice match, which ended in a draw, but the Bangladeshi players and bowlers put it to good use.
During their regular tour of Bangladesh, they often did not get enough opportunities to play three-day games because they must have been happy with the two-day practice game. Nevertheless, the type of Mominul Haque who tended to be out in single digits could make Bangladesh anxious.
Subsequent to being out on 0 in the main innings, Mominul, who ventured down as Bangladesh skipper just a little ways off of this series made 4. In the last 15 innings in the International cricket, Mominul got excused multiple times for single digit score and couldn’t move beyond 10 runs for the last seven innings at a stretch.
Adding these two single digit score, it stood now nine innings in succession.
Bangladesh pronounced their most memorable innings on 310-7, because of a 162 not out of Tamim Iqbal. Najmul Hossain Shanto made 54 while Nurul Hasan Sohan added 35. West Indies pronounced their innings on 359-8.
The Tigers in the mean time would be more cheerful by the type of Mustafizur Rahman who trapped three wickets in this match close by Ebadot Hossain. Mustafizur had never played Test cricket in West Indies and England where duke ball are utilized to play the more extended variant arrangement.
So his three wickets would give Bangladesh an extra lift up. “Everybody gears up well for the Test series after a decent practice game,” Pacer Ebadot Hossain said in a video message sent by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).
“Hitters did all around well with Tamim Iqbal scoring 150 or more runs. Shanto made 50 years. We had likewise done well in our bowling. Mustafizur went along with us today and got two wickets in his first finished. He in general had taken three wickets. We have partaken in this three-day game. Ideally we can do well in the Test series.”
