Presenting the comparison between spin attack of both countries, Bangladesh master all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has backed the home team spinners saying the Tigers possess a better attack than the visitors.

On Thursday, in a press briefing at the Sher – e – Bangla national stadium, Shakib said, “I am not saying that in every condition we have better spin attack than Australia, but at home, we are better than them. Both Taijul and Miraz has been performing well since long. I believe both of them would play a vital role in winning matches for us.”

Bangladesh came out successfully winning the Test against England at home above primarily spin wickets.

Therefore, Shakib said, “It would be nice to have wickets like the one on which we played against England. But no one can control wicket conditions.”

“Curators will try their best to prepare wickets like before. But it is not enough to depend upon wickets for success. We will have to do whatever we need to do in the field to win against Australia,” said Shakib Al Hasan.
