After a poor show in Test series, Bangladesh will be looking to fightback in the ODI series. For that, they have to forget what happened in the Test series and only concentrate on what is ahead of them, believes 35 years old spinner Abdur Razzak.
He said to a reporter on Tuesday: “There will be some changes in the ODI team. Shakib, Mashrafe and Nasir went to South Africa. But it doesn’t mean everyone will play. Its possible to fightback if everyone stays positive. Our ODI team performs better than the Test team.”
He added: “The problem in our team is we think too much about the past. Without doing that, we have to think how we can do well in the future. We have to learn from our mistakes, how to minimize the mistakes, then the team can do well I think.”
Abdur Razzak played only two matches in South Africa and got only 1 wicket. He wants to remind the spinners, that South Africa won’t make tracks that will benefit the spinners. He said: “When I played in South Africa, the wickets there were more difficult than now. You can see that the pitch offered some turn in the first test,”
“Their spinners got wickets too. I don’t know what type of wicket they will make in the ODI series. But the wicket will be bouncy, that’s for sure. Bowlers’ line length have to be very tight in this type of track. It will be difficult for the spinners.”
The left arm spinner also believes Bangladesh will perform well in the ODI series: “We played well in the Champions Trophy and World Cup which were away from home, so I’m pretty hopeful that they will perform well in South Africa too.”
