HIGHLIGHTS

  • Bangladesh lost two-test match series vs West Indies 0-2
  • Bangladesh will play 3 T20Is and 3 ODIs vs West Indies in July
  • Shakib Al Hasan says Bangladesh need to improve in all departments

Bangladesh Test captain Shakib Al Hasan had no qualms in accepting that his team needs to improve in every department in order to excel in red-ball cricket.

West Indies crushed Bangladesh in the two-test match series 2-0, securing the first win by seven wickets and the second victory by 10 wickets. Talking about Bangladesh’s outing in the two matches, Shakib was quoted as saying: “We have to improve in every department to do well in Tests.”

“Considering this Test, we tended to lose wickets just before a drinks break, a lunch break or before the rain. If we didn’t lose these wickets, things would have been quite different. This is a part of game awareness. We weren’t as tough as we could have been, in terms of showing character in this Test match.

“If all of us, and a couple of the players from outside, can plan together, we might do well. Otherwise, we cannot expect a lot of changes if we continue to play the same way. We have to bring changes in many aspects, including our thinking.”

Shakib pointed out Bangladesh doesn’t have a “new set of players” who could immediately come in and take responsibility.

“It is good that a big gap is coming up (before we play the next Test). Those who are interested in playing Tests can improve themselves during this time. We really don’t have a new set of players who will do well immediately after coming to this level,” the Bangladesh captain said.

Bangladesh will next switch to white-ball cricket as they are scheduled to play three T20Is and three ODIs against West Indies in July.
