New Delhi. Bangladesh’s legendary all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has raised questions on the pitch prepared for the recently concluded home T20 series against Australia and New Zealand. On the pitches used in this series, the ball was turning excessively and the bounce was also very high. For this reason, the batsmen were seen battling throughout the series. The good thing for Bangladesh was that they first defeated Australia 4-1 in the T20 series and then New Zealand 3-2. However, most of the matches in both the series were low scoring. After this, the experts of the game also raised questions about the pitch.
Shakib said during an event in Dhaka that those who also played the last 9-10 matches in Bangladesh. All of them were almost not in form. Wickets are like this, no one has batted well on these pitches. So it is better that we do not think too much about the performance of this series. If any batsman plays 10-15 matches on these pitches, then his career will be ruined. However, we should not talk about it too much. For now, the focus should be on the World Cup. Whoever has been included in the team has the ability to do well for the country and is in his best form at the moment.
We have developed winning mindset: Shakib
This Bangladesh all-rounder further said that our team will be in Oman 15-16 days before the T20 World Cup. That much time will be enough to adjust to the pitch and the conditions. I don’t think Bangladesh’s pitches and conditions will have any effect there. We have got used to winning. There has been a lot of change in the mindset of the players. We will definitely benefit from this in the World Cup. Bangladesh will have to play a qualifier before making it to the Super-12 round of the tournament. Bangladesh will start their journey in the T20 World Cup against Scotland on 17 October.
