Preparation has not been good for us: Russell Domingo

Bangladesh national cricket team is scheduled to travel Rawalpindi on Tuesday (February 4th) to play the first Test of the two-match series against Pakistan. The Tigers will return home after playing a Test in the second phase of their tour of Pakistan.

Preparation has not been good for us- Russell DomingoHowever, Bangladesh team had not been conducting any practice camp for this Test. Tigers had no opportunity to prepare because Bangladesh Cricket League (BCL) had been going on.

Mominul Haque-led team will practice for the Test on February 6 and will come down to the field to play the Test on February 7. Head coach Russell Domingo said the preparation was not enough for the Bangladesh team. He made this statement at a press conference on Monday (February 3th) before leaving the country at the Home of Cricket in Mirpur.

“It’s not good for preparation. You will always want to get anywhere at least seven or eight days before playing a Test match. Playing a warm-up game there, practicing for a few days only then it will be good preparation for the Test match. Preparation has not been good for us, but we have nothing to do with it. The boys will practice and play here. We’ll get there Wednesday morning, practice Thursday and play Friday. So this is not exactly an ideal preparation for a Test match,”

said Domingo.

Bangladesh’s main challenge against Pakistan is to face their pace bowlers. The head coach said the batsmen had to face a difficult situation as there had been no such wicket in Bangladesh.

He added, “The wicket that the cricketers are playing here does not have the speed and the bounce. I’m sure Rawalpindi’s wicket may have some speed and bounce. This is a big challenge for the boys. Some of them are doing well with Neil McKenzie, who (cricketer) has worked with them on some technical issues while playing Test.

Of course, the cricketers know that after a poor performance in the Test series against India, they have to give some good performance. We need to be more committed to batting. Even in difficult situations so that you can find a way out.”

Bangladesh team is scheduled to leave Dhaka for Pakintan on Tuesday (February 4th) evening on a Qatar Airways flight.
