Jayed expecting to make big stride

Jayed expecting to make big stride
Abu Jayed Rahi

Bangladesh fast bowler Abu Jayed Rahi hoped to make a big stride in international cricket, taking the confidence from his performance in the second Test in Wellington as he believed that he could swing the ball more now to the despair of the batsmen. Jayed who went wicket-less in the first Test in Hamilton, returned figures of 3-94 in the second Test and at times looked unplayable, especially in his fist spell. He removed both the openers to leave New Zealand in precarious 8-2 before Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson fought their way back to take the control of the Test.

But Jayed created opportunity twice to get the better of Taylor in the same over. However Shadman Islam and stand in skipper Mahmudullah Riyad dropped the catches, much to the frustration of the team and New Zealand were able to dominate the Test.

Bangladesh eventually lost the Test by an innings and 12-run margin, following their innings and 52-run win in the first Test.

Even though his performance was eye-catching, specially his ability to swing the ball in both ways -Jayed was frustrated not to win the Test for the country.

“Team’s victory is more important than the individual performance. If the team won, it would have been better for us,” Jayed said yesterday in Christchurch.

While he was disappointed of not winning the game, he didn’t have much complain about dropping the catch of Taylor, a factor that even Mahmudullah Riyad termed as one of the reasons of their defeat in the Test.

“It’s (dropping catch) the part of the game. Probably the luck was not with me-I am taking the matter this way.”

But Jayed was happy to improve his skill of making the ball swing, for which he credited the fast bowling coach Courtney Walsh.

“There is still a match left. I got the confidence that I can swing the ball more than the past. If you can swing the ball, it would be tougher for the batsman to play,” he remarked.

“I have talked to Walsh because I found some improvement in my bowling. Moreover here we got more swing than our country.”

Jayed who idolizes England’s pace bowler James Anderson, who is considered one of the best swing bowlers the world has ever seen, said, he tried to learn the ‘bubble’ ball, the stock delivery of New Zealand pace bowler Tim Southee.
