Miraz was a big loss: Domingo disappointed with Mosaddek's performance

Mosaddek came in the place of Nayeem and he was pretty poor throughout the whole Dhaka Test. He scored 0 and 9 in the two innings while taking no wickets.

After a miserable defeat by 10 wickets against Sri Lanka in the final Test of the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka at home, Bangladesh coach Russell Domingo said that all-rounder Mehidy Hasan Miraz had been a huge loss for the team.
One of the most important cricketers in Bangladesh Test team, Miraz was injured while fielding in the Dhaka Premier League (DPL) before the Test series and was eventually ruled out from both Tests. Nayeem Hasan was named as a replacement for the all-rounder, but he too got injured in the first Test in Chattogram.
So, Mosaddek came in the place of Nayeem and he was pretty poor throughout the whole Dhaka Test. He scored 0 and 9 in the two innings while taking no wickets. He also bowled only 12 overs. Domingo expressed dissatisfaction about it and said that they hoped Mosaddek would give them enough support with the ball but he failed.
“Mosaddek played because we needed someone who could bowl as a fifth option. We thought he could bowl 15 overs a day. I am always reluctant to bowl with four bowlers. It hurt us here again as Mosaddek didn’t bowl as well we’d hope he’d bowl,”
Domingo said.
He added that Miraz was a big miss for the team and there aren’t enough spinners for Bangladesh in the Test format too. “We thought he could do Miraz’s job with the ball. Miraz was a big loss – he bowls a lot of overs, he picks up wickets, and bats.
“We have a lot of one-day spinners. We spoke about the T20 spinner Mahedi. They are batsmen who can bowl some part-time spin. There isn’t a standout offs-pinner besides Nayeem and Miraz,” he added.
