I will try to make a difference from now: Domingo
Bangladesh’s head coach Russell Domingo hopes to make a difference now as he starts his T20 World Cup mission with the tri-nation series.
Bangladesh’s newly appointed coach Russell Domingo arrived just two weeks before the Test against Afghanistan and he could not offer much within the short period of time. But the former South African coach is hopeful that he can start making a difference now.
Ahead of the first match in the T20I tri-nation series, Domingo said in the press conference:
“I will try to make a difference from now. I am trying to give some inputs. I am sitting down with visuals of the players and trying to work on areas that need improvement. And talk about particular areas. The captain talked to me. He came up with suggestions. He knows the players more than I know at this stage. So the captain comes up with suggestions and I am going to support and back him one hundred percent.”
Domingo also urged the team to set the World Cup roadmap from this series.
“Absolutely, we need to set our World Cup roadmap from this series. I think there are twenty games now, which sounds a lot but that is not as many because you always not going to make it. Two or three games might be rained off and we might end up playing 15 or 16 games leading the World Cup. So let’s start planning because we got some places to develop prior to the World Cup and try and give them as much as experience under pressure as we possibly can.”
Bangladesh will face Zimbabwe in the opening game at the SBNCS.
