Bangladesh one-day captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza stressed upon the need to be mentally ready for them, citing the memories of the last West Indies tour, he said that if they could stay ready mentally, they will obviously be victorious whatever condition they play.

Mashrafe also thinks that losing is a part of game but if they take the field with the steely mindset that is what will happen.

 “It’s true that we’ve not played a lot of cricket here, but that does not mean that the weather and conditions have changed completely. In the West Indies when we went to play the last match in St Kitts, we’re thinking that it would have been better if we’d wrapped it up in Guyana. But we’re able to play our best cricket in St Kitts. Because we’re mentally ready,” Mashrafe told reporters.

“That is what, we talked about today that it’s very important to be ready mentally. The worst can happen, we can lose disastrously. That is part of cricket but if we take the field with that mindset that is what will happen. So we’ve to be positive, and it’s not as if we’ll get out the same way that we did the day before. So we’ve to back ourselves fully and try to play our best cricket,” he added.

The captain said that they have to give their utmost best to fare well at this crunch match in Sylhet where they have no big list of experience to share.

“Actually I don’t have much experience at this venue. I played three matches in the BPL,” he said.

“There was dew and that was an issue. We have to see how it is now,” he also said.

“I don’t have much experience to share. Overall, there is no use thinking of these things. The situation is a crunch moment and we have to give our best,” he added.

“We’ve covered their pace bowling in both matches,” the experienced Mashrafe responded to a media query.

“There were one or two early wickets. But if you look at the last match, they could not really unbalance Tamim with pace, nor Riyad. Initially there may be something. Shakib played comfortably and also played shots,” he said.

“I don’t think it makes much of a difference. Maybe in the past there was a time when these things affected a lot, but that time is gone. But if you think about extreme pace, then all batsmen around the world have trouble with that. But 140-143, I think we have a lot of batsmen at this level.”

“Tamim played Mitchell Starc, Cummins, Hazlewood and others in the Champions Trophy in England and batted comfortably. We have crossed that stage. If Tamim had not gotten out at that stage it could have been a different scenario, Mushfiqur too. If Shakib had batted two of the last three overs, we could have scored 20 more runs.”

“It was all about not executing properly, it was not that we had problems because of pace. But extreme pace... you cannot blame just our team, it’s difficult for all batsmen, but it is important how they handle it.”
