Mashrafe Mortaza desires to hinge on on ODI class. Bangladesh chief Mashrafe Mortaza trusts that their ODI structure can rub off on the singular T20 against Pakistan on Friday. Then again, Bangladesh are still somehow far from turning into a profoundly respected T20 side, which Mashrafe feels Pakistan are.
Bangladesh’s eleven wins in this arrangement have been spread more than nine years. Despite the fact that they fit the bill for the principle rivalry of the World T20 a year ago, they were mortified by Hong Kong in the qualifying stage and lost every one of their matches in the primary round. Their just match in the configuration since the World T20 a year ago was washed out, while the BCB last facilitated a local T20 competition in December 2013.
Mashrafe said that Bangladesh’s absence of involvement in T20s is a significant obstacle. He said that they did not have a huge hitter down the request while Shakib Al Hasan, inarguably Bangladesh’s most looked for after T20 player, needs assistance in the playing office.
“We can seek after a win tomorrow particularly perceiving how our batsmen and bowlers are doing their employment,” Mashrafe said. “In any case on the off chance that we are looking to raise a veritable T20 group, we need to dispose of our deficiencies. We require a phenomenal hitter at No 7 or 8. We require all the more great bowlers to work alongside Shakib.
“T20 has dependably been troublesome for us. We don’t play enough aside from Shakib. Still we are extremely certain on the grounds that the young men are in great touch. We haven’t played numerous matches, neither have we won numerous against top sides. Anyway regardless I feel we are equivalents. In the event that we play as we did in the ODI arrangement, we can win.”
Mashrafe said that Bangladesh are not able to create great T20 players in light of the fact that four-day and one-day cricket are given more accentuation in the residential stadium. He said that ability alone is issuing him the certainty that they can beat Pakistan on Friday.
“Ability is not an issue in light of the fact that everybody tries to play their common amusement. The issue is that we barely play T20s even at residential level. We generally play four-day or one-day cricket, so there is absence of practice. You can’t get ready for T20s and in addition you accomplish for Tests and ODIs. We don’t have those unprecedented T20 pros.
“A considerable lot of our players like to play shots while we have bowlers like Rubel (Hossain) and Taskin (Ahmed). Yet we need to rest Rubel for the Test arrangement. On the off chance that we play more T20s, we can be a superior group. We have the capacity. Right now we haven’t came to a more elevated amount.”
Mashrafe said that Sabbir Rahman is potentially the best hitter in their current line-up while the best batsmen of the ODI arrangement, Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim and Soumya Sarkar will be convenient in T20s.
“Sabbir is a decent striker of the ball. Soumya, Tamim and Mushfiqur, regardless of his size, can play shots. Shakib is there. The issue is that in ODIs and Tests you have sufficient energy to get set. You can’t take more than five-six balls to get set (in T20).
“Absence of match practice is a tremendous variable. Involvement in this configuration matters. In the event that everybody can play their common amusement, we will have a shot. The main four needs to do well, no less than one of them, in the event that you take a gander at the group’s structure.”
Mashrafe said that he needs to utilize just six batsmen. Anything additional is a negative move, he felt. He has set a considerable measure of trust rather on the quick bowlers, who he supposes will have the capacity to have the effect.
“All T20 groups have six batsmen, however playing eight batsmen is very much a negative move. T20 is additionally a bowler’s amusement, since they hold the way to winning matches. I don’t think we require an extra batsman. Be that as it may it all relies on upon our certainty and entertainers. Playing three pace bowlers is the right choice. We need to continue having confidence in them.”
Mashrafe concurred that Bangladesh stay somehow behind Pakistan in T20s. Anyhow he is as yet relying on his structure batsmen and bowlers to draw the carpet from beneath the guests, who have lost a visit match and each of the three ODIs.
“Shahid Afridi was correct [in saying they are a stronger T20 side]. They are playing T20s for quite a while, some like Afridi and (Sohail) Tanvir have played in overabundance of 100 T20s. It would be incredible on the off chance that we can perform in the field, and beat their experience.”
