We bowled well but not fielded- Taskin

Bangladesh Cricket Team started their mission well today in the Hyderabad Test. But Tigers were not able to capitalize on the early wicket they got losing the toss. Pacer Taskin Ahmed blamed fielders for the downfall in day-1.

The right arm pacer striked early in Rajiv Gandhi International stadium, picking up the wicket of Indian opener KL Rahul in his very first over.

Indian Cricket team also found it tough to score runs in the first session and were able to score only 86 runs losing a wicket. But things started to change after the lunch.

Virat Kohli’s side then went on to score 270 runs in the next two sessions with loss of just two more wickets.

But Taskin Ahmed is still very positive and he believes they did not bowled very bad, “In the first hour it was moving a bit but after that it was a dry and flat wicket. Our bowlers bowled well but they also batted well… sometimes flawlessly.”

In fact he said they missed out to get more wickets, “If that run-out had taken place we could have had 5-6 wickets instead of three, but Catch misses and run-out misses are part of the game.”

Taskin who is playing only third test also added, ”If we can bowl them out within 450 runs then it will be good for us.”

He assured that the bowlers will make a come back tomorrow, “There were so many runs, as we bowled too many shorts ball today as we did in new Zealand. The two conditions are different. Hopefully we will be able to recover tomorrow.”
