A Test series win away from home is going to be even more special: Moor
After winning their first Test match after 5 years, Zimbabwe batsman Peter Moor now eyes for a Test series victory and believes the second Test will be even more challenging.
Moor played a crucial role in Zimbabwe’s win in the first Test and can be regarded as the savior as his unbeaten 63 took Zimbabwe to 282 in the first innings which ended up as a match deciding score.
The 27-year old handed the spinner brilliantly and he gave credit to his former batting coach Lance Klusner for helping him how to tackle spin.
“I think I just want to have a strong defense when I play spin and that’s something I’m fairly capable of and that was my game plan in the first Test. I think I did a lot of work with Lance Klusener, the previous batting coach, when we came across to Bangladesh. He taught me some good things about getting my bat in front of my pad. I think I worked hard at it. Obviously, Zimbabwe is not a very spin friendly condition, but I think it helped me. Whenever I have come to the sub-continent I batted well against spin.”
Moor also said he is aware that the hosts will come back hard in the second Test match, but still dreams to win the Test series and make history.
“It’s my first ever Test win. I think for seven of our guys in the team, it’s our first ever Test win, so it was very special for everybody. But I think a Test series win away from home is going to be even more special. Team is in a good place I think. We know this is also going to be very challenging. Obviously, it’s a different wicket, little bit more unpredictable wicket I think and we also know the Bangladesh side will be up for the win.”
The second Test will begin on 11 November at the home of cricket Shere-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
