Holder feels Bangladesh’s pitches will turn even more
After the 2-0 thrashing in the Test series against India, Jason Holder’s concentration now moves on into the Test series against Bangladesh. And the Windies skipper believes Bangladesh’s pitch will turn a lot more than the wickets turned in India.
Holder also feels the conditions will be even tougher in Bangladesh, therefore he urges his side to play smart and better cricket than blaming the pitches.
In the post match press conference, the Windies skipper said:
“We are headed to Bangladesh after this and Bangladesh will hit us with a lot of spinners. The wickets will probably spin a lot more than these spun in the last two Test matches. I felt personally the wickets were pretty good. A lot of people remark there are probably better surfaces than India has produced in the last couple of years. We can’t fault the pitches. We just need to play smart and better cricket.”
Windies lost the first Test match by an innings and a mammoth 272-run while India also won the 2nd Test comfortably by 10 wickets. In both the matches, Windies batting collapsed and the captain has no clue why the collapses are happening so often.
“(I’m) trying to understand the reasons why it’s (collapses) happening. It’s a case where we all need to put our heads together, The management, the selectors, to the players. The onus must be on the players and we must be responsible for our actions. We got to come together a little bit more and find ways and solutions to deal with the problems that we have at the moment.”
