Obviously a lot of things happened behind the scenes: Masakadza
Bangladesh and Zimbabwe set to lock horns in the opening game of the T20I tri-nation series on Friday.
About a month ago, it was uncertain of Zimbabwe playing cricket anytime soon, but with the help of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), they have got an opportunity to participate in the T20I tri-nation series along with the hosts Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
Zimbabwe captain Hamilton Masakadza admitted that a lot of things happened behind the scenes, but he and his players only want to concentrate and give their best on the field.
“Obviously a lot of things happened. That’s all behind the scenes. At the end of the day as cricketers, our job is to play the best cricket on the field. The first and main thing for players is to concentrate on cricket and then put our best foot forward going out and do your job for your country tomorrow.”
The skipper, who is set to retire after this series also admitted that both the teams are ahead than Zimbabwe.
“Obviously, both the teams are very strong. Afghanistan have been playing very good Twenty20 cricket and Bangladesh being at home. hough I know the both sides are very strong, we have a lot of successes in Twenty20 cricket here. So I don’t think we are far behind them at all,” he said.
Zimbabwe will take on Bangladesh in the opening match in Dhaka’s Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Friday.
