Injuries won’t mar Tigers’ WC campaign: Bashar

Sports Reporter, Dhaka
Injuries won’t mar Tigers’
WC campaign: Bashar

The concern they have for the players’ injuries will not remain ahead of the looming ICC Cricket World Cup-2019, said Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) selector Habibul Bashar Sumon.

He also said that the steps are being taken and their plan has been decorated in that way so that players’ injury could not pose any big problem on way to their World Cup campaign.

“Injury, I hope, will not bother us in the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup what did it in this New Zealand tour,” said Habibul Bashar Sumon.

“As we had World Cup in mind, we had to think much we will take risk for which player and who will be rested in the tour what was stored in our mind. We never got our best XI in New Zealand since the last two tours. For this, we have waited a bit and have to keep patience. The concern we have for the injuries will not remain ahead of the World Cup. The steps are being taken and our planning has been decorated in that way,” Sumon told media at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur yesterday.  “Prior to the World Cup, we hope, we will get every player in good stead. But if anybody is injured in that case, they have nothing to do because injury is a part of game. But how we can manage it, the preparation is being taken in that way,” he added.

BCB selector hinted on Saturday that they will announce the Tigers preliminary squad for the looming ICC Cricket World Cup-2019 within the next one-two days.

Sumon also said that they have prepared a 30-member preliminary squad of Bangladesh team, where they have included some new players who have performed well in BPL, HP and Bangladesh ‘A’ Team.

The 50-over extravaganza event will be held in between May-July in England and Wales with the participation of the top 10 teams.

“You all will get the Tigers’ preliminary squad within tomorrow or day after tomorrow,” said Habibul Bashar Sumon.

“There is no scope to bring much change to the squad as already we have a set-up for the World Cup. But you have all heard that some new players have been included. We have to give a 30-member squad for the World Cup. For this, we have seen some of the new players,” Sumon said.

“Apart from that, we have the premier league what we will see. We’ve the New Zealand tour as well. But our main concern is to get all the players fit. And which is why, a big squad has been given,” he added.

“We’ve thought of some of the new players who played well in BPL. Even there are some players who have done well in HP and Bangladesh ‘A’ Team,” he told in response to a query.

He said that the problem they had around the No 6 or 7 will not remain this time around.

“Though it is a bit amount of it, we’ve sorted out problem of two-three of our players. Even the series is not well for us, Sabbir did well at number six and seven that is a good thing for us,” he viewed.

“Everyone is in form more or less. I think we will not have that much problem with number six and seven this time around.

I think we now have a settled team. Now, we just hope everyone will be fine ahead of the World Cup and they can go to the World Cup with utmost form,” he continued.

When asked about Shakib Al Hasan, the former captain said that their main concern is to get Shakib fit.

“It has been 10-15 years since Shakib has played his first match for the Tigers. I don’t think he still needs grooming before the World Cup bringing back from IPL. He has been playing for the Tigers for a long time now with the current bunch of the players,” he responded.

“It’s no matter of playing in the third Test [in New Zealand] or IPL. The issue is his fitness. We need to think how fit he is to play and which game he can start with. There is no matter of participating in the third Test or IPL. His fitness is the most important thing for us,” he added.
