Muminul Haque feels that his fortune is bad.
After getting the Test captaincy, he has been able to come down with a full strength team in very few Tests. As many Tests as Bangladesh have played since he took the lead, some are injured, some are rested or on leave. Bangladesh is not getting four regular cricketers in the Chittagong Test starting tomorrow.
Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal and Taskin Ahmed are out of the Chittagong Test squad due to injuries. Mahmudullah, who is in Bangladesh’s latest Test squad, has said goodbye to this version.
Not having four players in the main team in a hurry is definitely a big push. Mahmudullah will not play Tests — it was somewhat speculative. However, the hope of getting Shakib and Tamim was a few days ago. And Taskin’s injury is completely unexpected. So many inexperienced and new cricketers will get a chance in this series.
Yasir Ali, a young batsman who has been with the team for a long time, could make his debut with the Chittagong Test. The wind of change may take over the top order as well. In the absence of Tamim, Saif Hasan could be seen starting the innings with opener Sadman Islam. Mahmudul Hasan, who was called up for the first time as a ‘backup’ opener, could also drop his first Test cap later.
All in all, the new look of the Test team. Muminul’s young Test team is heading in the right direction, which may be understood in this year’s Pakistan series and next month’s tour of New Zealand. Muminul also knows that this is a big challenge.
Speaking at an online press conference after the practice at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium today for the Chittagong Test, the Bangladesh Test captain said, “Test matches always require more experience. Shakib Bhai, Tamim Bhai, Taskin my job as a young captain becomes difficult without experience. ‘
Muminul also thinks the next two series are a big test, “We don’t have four cricketers. It will be challenging. I and Mushfiqur Bhai have to take extra responsibility. But you can see where the Test cricket of Bangladesh is going in this series and in the next series.
After the Pakistan series at home, the Bangladesh team will go to New Zealand. The Muminuls will play two more matches of the Test Championship there. Shakib has already taken leave from that series. There are fears that Tamim will also be found in that series due to injury.
The Test captain may be able to imagine how difficult it would be to play without these two experienced New Zealand conditions.
