Courtney Walsh, former Windies bowling legend and present Bangladesh trainer, expressed blended feelings following the thumping of his local crew by way of his disciples within the lately concluded two-match Check collection. Bangladesh registered their first-ever innings win on Sunday to finish a 2-Zero blank sweep towards the Windies in Dhaka. The guests had been bundled out for 111 and 213 runs in successive innings of the second one Check, right through which Bangladesh had requested a crew for the primary time to follow-on.
Walsh, a Jamaican cricketing large who took 519 Check wickets for the West Indies, these days acts as fast-bowling trainer for Bangladesh, and mentioned the thumping used to be bittersweet.
“I may say that I’m dissatisfied with almost definitely how issues have opened up, however I’m more than pleased to be concerned with Bangladesh,” Walsh advised journalists in Dhaka.
“We’re in a successful state of affairs, so my delight is unbroken. As a West Indian, you’ll be dissatisfied within the efficiency.”
Walsh’s phase in the second one Check win used to be rather reduced as Bangladesh didn’t box a unmarried immediate bowler, an unparalleled transfer for the house aspect.
Their lone immediate bowler within the first Check, Mustafizur Rahman, bowled simply 4 overs in that tournament, leaving the spinners to dominate.
Shakib Al Hasan, Mehidy Hasan, Taijul Islam and Nayeem Hasan accounted for all 40 wickets, a file for a Check collection in Bangladesh.
In spite of the spinners’ dominance, Walsh insisted Bangladesh’s immediate bowlers had extra to offer.
“Tactically, we needed to play extra spinners to win a Check and the collection. It used to be accomplished,” he mentioned.
“Optimistically once we move to New Zealand, the seamers may get a greater alternative. We may get various kinds of wicket, and so they must wish to grasp the ones alternatives as neatly.”
Bangladesh, who may even play 3 one-day internationals and 3 Twenty20 internationals towards West Indies, will talk over with New Zealand in February.
