Ashraful will be missed: Shane Jurgensen

IMG_7063Shane Jurgensen, the head coach of the Bangladesh cricket team has returned to Bangladesh on Monday evening. He was on holiday for a long time with his family in Australia. He had found himself in a challenging situation right after returning from home. The country cricket is undergoing a tough time. Being a part of the national cricket team he had to be touched with the whole thing.

Jorgensen attended a meeting of the BCB directing department on Monday. Before attending the meeting he was bombarded with questions from the journalists. ‘Frankly speaking, I don’t know much about this. I don’t really like to comment on this. This is a tough time for everyone. I just want the investigation to be finished.’ He just tried to avoid the dispute not even trying to give any diplomatic answer. He proclaimed that, he didn’t have any idea that Ashraful was riding in the dark world of fixing. He didn’t even imagine that, Ashraful was doing something like spot fixing in the t-20 world cup match against New Zealand in the presence of him. Neither did he want to comment on this as well. But he lay bore that if Ashraful is suspended that will be a huge loss for the Bangladesh team. ‘If he is suspended that will cost our batting. I don’t really know what was found in investigation. He was batting well. If he is suspended , we will miss him. I don’t want to say more than that.’ Jurgensen said.

Jurgensen is now just focusing on the cricket in the field to come. Premier league will be on the way very soon. As ‘A’ team is in England, a group of players will be in cricket. Sakib will be playing for Lister shire. Tamim is going to West-Indies to play Caribbean t- 20 there.  The home series against the New Zealand will be started on October. There Jorgensen thinks there is not much time to think about those staffs irrelevant to cricket. ‘We have some important series coming up. We had a long break after long days of International and local cricket. So we are eyeing on the recent series that’s coming along. We have to work hard to improve our fitness. We are going to finish up everything to get into the cricket again.’ Jurgensen added.
