Mominul expects full marks from middle-order

Middle-order batting, in recent times, has become the biggest weapon in Bangladesh’s success. If the middle-order clicks, Bangladesh do good – this is the new norm in absence of Tamim Iqbal at the top.

Mominul and Maushfiqur puts Bangladesh On Driving Seat
Mominul believes middle-order will once again take the charge.

There is no Tamim Iqbal to open the bat means Bangladeshi top-order has weakened a lot. There have been other openers to give Tamim’s proxy, and that worked quite well in the ODI series against Zimbabwe. But in Tests, Bangladesh have been struggling to make a good start.

The middle-order failed in the first Test against Zimbabwe, which resulted in a rare loss to Zimbabwe. But since then, middle-order is doing pretty well, and Bangladesh’s success is just a reflection of that.

Mominul Haque, the Test specialist of Bangladesh side, is confident that the middle-order will continue to do well in the impending Dhaka Test as well.

“I think the middle order will get 100 out of 100 this time. We will play really good cricket,” said Mominul.

Opener Imrul Kayes will not play in the second Test due to injury. Uncapped Shadman Islam may be given a go for this match, and Mominul believes Shadman will make a good start to his career.

“I am not quite sure if Shadman will play. It’s the team management’s concern. But I think, if Shadman plays, he will play well.”

Mominul also added that Bangladesh will look for a victory in the second match, though a draw will be more than enough to seal the series victory.

“We have won the previous match, and we will aim the same this time as as well. We will take the field with just one goal, and that is to win. We are placed in a good position mentally. We are a good side, have the advantage in hand, and our record is good in home conditions. So we are definitely ahead in every sector.”
