Bangladesh Batting Failed Against Afghanistan: Shakib Al Hasan

The captain of Bangladesh, Shakib Al Hasan has severely hampered his team’s strike performance following their one-on-one test in the Chattogram on Monday, September 9, after their 224 defeat by Afghanistan.

Afghanistan, led by its spinners, fired Bangladesh for 205 and 173, with the 52 of Mominul Haque scoring in the first innings the highest score of a Bangladeshi batsman in the match. Shakib bit. “We probably have zero out of hundred ,” Shakib said when asked to rate the performance. “The Afghans earned a letter and we could not put pressure on them, it is very difficult to accept this defeat, it is very disappointing.”

Shakib criticized in the second hour of play, on the first ball after the rain break in the last hour on Monday, especially his own dismissal. When he was 44, he prevailed against wicket keeper Afsar Zazai. His team had to survive at least 9.2 overs to avoid a defeat.

“The whole blame is mine,” he said. “I was very nervous when I came out to hit and the first ball came out, and it was my fault, I could have taken more responsibility and avoided the cut, we just had to play for an hour and 10 minutes and I got the first ball out That made it harder for the crew, and the locker room would have felt better if I had stayed outside. “

Shakib also pointed to a tactical error in the 61st game, in which Soumya Sarkar took a single from the second ball and left four balls to Nayeem Hasan No. 11 for survival.

“Soumya put his hand on his head after doing this run,” Shakib pointed out. “It means that he does not understand what he has to do, what his role is, these things have to be learned with experience, and how many days it will take to learn … not easy to say.”

In addition, Shakib affirmed that he was not interested in leading the team, but that the team needed a leadership role. “I’m not even mentally ready to lead in tests and T20s,” Shakib said. “But the team is not in good shape, so I understand that I have to lead to get back on track, otherwise I’m not really interested in running in any format, I can focus on myself, though I am not a captain. ” That would help the team.

“I want the younger ones to take the responsibility, we got the captain at a very young age, but they are now 26-27 years old, and if you do not give them responsibility, you will not know what they can do The Test World Cup. ” and the T20 World Cup are ahead, so we should plan for the next four years. “
