Bangladesh seeks McKenzie’s help to decode Ashwin-Jadeja

It’s India’s fast bowling unit which is now feared in Tests but Bangladesh batsmen are more concerned about handling spin twins Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja during the two-match series, top-order player Mohammed Mithun said on Tuesday.

Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma are expected to be more than a handful during the series but Mithun seemed more wary about the Ashwin-Jadeja threat.

“We all know the strength of their bowling line-up. We are working on how to tackle their spinners as it is batting-friendly for the first two days but afterwards their spinners come into play as they try to attack the opposition,” he said.

“We are working on some technical aspects keeping our focus on how to handle them,” Mithun said.

They are expecting that batting coach Neil McKenzie will help them decode the Indian spinners.

“Let the technical things remain inside the dressing room,” he said without parting with the trade secrets.

Asked to comment on India’s weakness, Mithun said that he preferred to look at his own strength than opponent’s weakness.

“We are looking at our strength more than focusing on their weakness because no team could do well against them at their home (in the recent past). We are looking forward to do well here. Obviously it won’t be easy and we need to work really hard,” he said.
