Bangladesh coach explained the game plans
Bangladesh coach explained the game plans to the reports, “It was extremely difficult we didn’t start the day well as we would have wanted with the ball. We probably got a little bit too leg-stumpish and then we changed plan and try to bowl on the leg side.”
The Coach also added, “Then we got another plan probably very too early which was to go short. It could have worked but it didn’t and you must understand that sort of plans takes a lot out of the bowlers. We might have been better off doing that from one end rather than both ends because the bowlers looked pretty cooked going into the afternoon and then evening session”
Bangladesh coach explained the Mustafizur’s absence,
Bangladesh coach explained the Mustafizur’s absence, “It is a real struggle for him to bowl in back-to-back Test matches. To get the best out of him mentally and keeping him fresh, is to spell the Tests that he plays. I think you can gather from that that he will come back into the fold in the next Test”
The Coach aware of about the pace sensation
The Coach was aware of about the pace sensation, “One of the reasons we wanted him to play in Wellington is because there’s going to be a blowing gale there. He is our best bowler into the wind. There’s a lot of work for the Fizz in Wellington, which is why we wanted him to be fresh. Everything is horses for courses.”
Bangladesh failed to take anything from the hosts
Bangladesh failed to take anything from the hosts. “I think today we should not take anything away from New Zealand batsmen. Both opening batsmen played extremely well both yesterday and today. They set things up yesterday and some of the balance was fantastic when the ball was on middle and leg. They left the ball and they built a really good foundation and they added to that today.”
Steve Rhodes admired the newcomer Ebadat Hossain
Steve Rhodes admired the newcomer, Ebadat Hossain, “Ebadat showed great enthusiasm and good pace. He is really bright and looks to be a good prospect and he will get better with a little bit of experience. You got to hit the line and length for long enough. Because for international cricket you don’t get away with four balls. And so certainly you have got to better with your areas and hit that wicket nice and hard.”
