Despite these kinds of negativities, we can hope that Abu Jayed got three wickets in the second test. So this pacer is determined to utilize the swing condition in Christchurch. Though Abu Jayed blamed to the miss-fielding, “Everyone miss catches and that is quite normal. Basically probably it was not written in my fate and I have taken it that way,”

If our team could get a result than it would have been more pleasing. We still have one match to go and we have developed the faith that we can swing the ball. The batsmen are finding it difficult to play our deliveries and it is increasing our self-belief”
