In the recent away tours, the performance of Bangladesh has been immensely good and on their day they can be a dangerous team and can defeat any team.

He said in a press conference: “Before facing Bangladesh, we will play only 1 practice match. It doesn’t matter against whom we are playing, to perform well we have to take every kind of preparation. On their day, Bangladesh can be very dangerous.” 

He added: “I have not seen the practice bag for the past three weeks. I returned to practice this week. Feeling good. It was very necessary to break the mood in England after the Test series and county finish. The preparation of one player in the test is the same. Want to score some runs in the four-day game before the start of the first Test. Bangladesh will be tough as opposition.” 

The main battle will begin on 28th September when Bangladesh will play their first Test match against the Proteas at Potchefstroom.
