Our bowlers have variation: Hathurusingha

Our bowlers have variation: Hathurusingha

Chandika Hathurusingha has said that the pace bowlers are Bangladesh’s strength. He believes that all the bowlers have different skills.

Taskin Ahmed’s pace, Mustafizur Rahman’s cutters, Rubel Hossain’s bowling at the death, captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza in the powerplay are all different strengths of Bangladesh bowlers.

“I’m not going into that, far to say that we are better than anybody else [when he asked to compare his bowling attack with India]. But we have variation. Our four fast bowlers each give you a different taste,” the head coach said at the press conference.

“I always said that my bowlers are better. I don’t underestimate India. They have a very good fast bowling attack. They are very good in helpful conditions. As I said before we have four bowlers with different sets of skills.”

Left-arm pace sensation Mustafizur has not been at his best since recovering from injury. But coach Hathurusingha backs him. He is still happy with the Fizz’s performance.

“If you remember, he had a bit of a setback after the first year. It took eight or nine months out of his development. He is developing, the fast bowling coaches and the captain is working with him about the tactical side of the game and skill development. He is still improving. He is coming back from injury. It is challenging for him in the second and third season but he is really doing well. He is a very clever cricketer and he is learning very fast,” he said.
