Bangladesh lost their second official ICC Champions Trophy warm-up match to India by a huge margin of of 240 runs, on Tuesday. Earlier they lost their first warm-up match against Pakistan from a winning position.
But the Tiger coach did not seem bothered ahead of the most waited ICC tournament of the year as he hopes his side would execute the game plans better in the tournament games what they could not do in the warm-up games in the last four days.
“There is nothing to keep secret nowadays. It’s not that I am satisfied but I am a bit concerned. It does not mean we are not confident. And when we go on to the proper game, our combinations and plans are going to be different. Probably we will execute it better,” Hathuruisngha told the media after the defeat against India, on Tuesday.
Although Bangladesh’s performance was very disappointing in both of the warm-up matches ahead of their Champions Trophy clash against hosts England, the experienced Bangladesh coach believes still there are some positive things to take from both the warm-up matches.
“I think we understand the condition. That’s the one thing we can take. And in the last game, we scored 300 (341) runs. I think the Champions Trophy will be a high-scoring one because of the pitches. I mean, there is nothing much we can take out [Tuesday], apart from a few in the bowling,” he added.
