Zimbabwe work on ‘honing skills’

SPORTS REPORTER, Dhaka
Zimbabwe work on ‘honing skills’

Zimbabwe wicketkeeper–batsman Regis Chakabva has stressed the importance of working on honing their own skills to perform well on the cricket field rather than harping on the opponent's strengths for the upcoming Test against Bangladesh.

“Bangladesh have always been a competitive side. They are a tremendous side on home soil. So, we need to focus on performing well rather than thinking too much about the Bangladesh squad,” said Regis Chakabva, who played six Tests against Bangladesh.


 
“We’re concentrating on our strength and what we need to do out in the middle,” he told the media prior to their pre-practice match day training session at the National Cricket Academy of the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur yesterday.

Recalling the 2018 Test in Sylhet, where Zimbabwe took the lead and won the opening Test against Bangladesh by 151 runs, the doughty wicketkeeper–batsman said they would like to put up the same performance to win the one-off Test series.

“We need to look at that Test that we had won against Bangladesh in Sylhet. We must analyse how we had played in that match. We need to repeat that type of performance to win the upcoming Test,” he also said.

“Bangladesh is always a difficult away tour. We just need to make sure that we stay focused. Hopefully, we will come out good this time as well,” he added.

Asked if he was worried about the outcome, Chakabva said: “No, not at all. We’re enjoying the condition at the moment.”

The wicketkeeper–batsman considered Shakib Al Hasan as the finest player of Bangladesh. He said that even though the all-rounder was not in the team, it was always a big challenge to play against Bangladesh on their home soil. “Shakib is a big player. But a lot of players have been playing for Bangladesh since we last played here. Even without Shakib, Bangladesh are not any less competitive,” he elaborated.

“We’ve to be focused while playing against spinners. It will be a big challenge. Hopefully, we’ll perform well,” he said.
