Tigers hope for the best in second Test

Sports Reporter

Bangladesh sorted out the mistakes in building partnerships, which they thought was the missing link in their devastating innings and 219 runs loss to hosts West Indies in the first Test.

They however didn’t put blame on the wicket that was uneven to some extent and carried extra bounce and swing. But while Bangladesh were bowled out for 43, their lowest in the history and 144 in two innings of the first Test, West Indies put on 406 in their only innings.

West Indies built on that considerable total, riding on some brilliant partnerships, much to the disappointment of Bangladeshi bowlers. At the end, the hosts batsmen proved, one can easily thrive in this wicket, if he has the patience and knack to build partnership.

With the Test ending on two and half days, Bangladesh had much to ponder on how they would comeback in the second Test, starting on July 12 at Kingston, shrugging of the shameful defeat. The internal talk was surrounding as to how they could show much patience and put on partnerships as they try to make a turnaround.

“We need to stress on building partnerships, which was the missing link in the first Test,” said wicket-keeper batsman Nurul Hasan Sohan, the only batsman of Bangladesh to hit a half-century in the ill-fated Test.

“We hardly have anything positive in the first Test but yet we are able to make a turnaround. I think if we can build one or two good partnerships, we will be able to throw a stiff challenge to them.”

“We can’t put blame on wicket. There was extra bounce, swing and it was uneven to some extent but it was not unplayable. From that view, our performance was disappointing. We have talked amongst us to how we can comeback.”

Even though the cricket fraternity lashed out at the team severely from their disgraceful performance, Sohan believed, Bangladesh were not as bad team as they were in the first Test.

“We made some mistakes. Our target is not to repeat the mistakes. As a team we were worst. But we have the ability to amend it. I think if we can get one or two good partnerships in the second Test, we could show we are not that bad team.”

“It’s obviously right we even couldn’t expect to be bowled out for just 43 runs. We had good chance to make a comeback in the second innings but we lost wickets very quickly which put us in the back-foot. However we hope for the best in the second Test.”
