Taunton’s size prompts Tigers to rethink of strategies

Taunton’s size prompts Tigers to rethink of strategies

With one of the shorter square boundaries in England, Taunton prompted Bangladesh to rethink of their bowling strategies given the fact that the West Indies, a side full of big hitters, would get the short boundaries particularly to their likings. The likes of Andre Russell, Chris Gayle though have the ability to clear the boundaries even the largest ground of the World with utmost ease, the shorter boundary means even their miss which could be a catch in larger ground would be six in shorter square boundaries.

Bangladesh will take on West Indies at Taunton on June 17, a match which is a must-win game for them if they want to stay alive in the World Cup semifinal race. “Because of the size of this ground, we might have to re-think some of our attacks, plans and strategies. It is a much smaller ground, so we have to ensure we are more spot-on and consistent, and try to create the pressure,” said Bangladesh fast bowling coach Courtney Walsh.

West Indies however lost their last game to England by eight wickets after being bowled out for just 212. Against England, West Indies lost wickets at the top and that hampered their chances of posting a formidable score. Walsh said that they would learn from the strategies England used.

According to Walsh, Mustafizur could be key with new ball if he gets the rhythm early on. “It depends on the opposition with the new ball. We have tried him. If he gets into his rhythm pretty early, he can get us early wickets. It depends on the surface too but it is not something we have ruled out. It gives us a bit of edge if he can get the bounce with the new ball, left-arm over and around the wicket. There’s every possibility he could do it here,” he said.

The last time England hosted a World Cup in 1999 Courtney Walsh, playing for West Indies was man-of-the-match against Bangladesh. His world has changed in 20 years as he is now the pace bowling coach of Bangladesh, who will start as favourtie against his native country. However, Walsh ensured that his loyalty would be with Bangladesh.

“Obviously I am from West Indies but I am with Bangladesh and I want Bangladesh to do well every team that we play against and that includes West Indies,” Walsh said, Walsh said it would be ‘nice’ to get another win and insisted that Bangladesh should not face any problem to get the desired result unless they became complacent or take it for granted.
