Don’t expect miracles: Hathurusinghe

Mentor Chandika Hathurusinghe on Saturday cautioned against expecting “supernatural occurrences” from his side in the inevitable Test arrangement against Britain starting one week from now.

Bangladesh won six back to back one-day global arrangement since November 2014 preceding Britain finished their splendid keep running with a 2-1 win in the three-coordinate arrangement this week.

In any case, they have not played a Test since confronting South Africa in July a year ago when just three days of play was conceivable because of rain.

The long break from five-day cricket matches provoked the Bangladesh mentor to send a notice message to the country’s cricket-distraught fans in front of the two-Test arrangement.

“You can’t have plans on the off chance that you don’t have ammo. You can oversee what you have, and that is the thing that we are considering,” Hathurusinghe told journalists in Chittagong, which will have the main Test from 20-24 October.

“We will continue building up a system in the long haul. Try not to anticipate that us will do supernatural occurrences straight away,” he said.

“On the off chance that we happen to win, well and great. We are en route. It will give us a considerable measure of certainty. I am not very stressed over what I don’t have. I am attempting to amplify what we have.”

Hathurusinghe mourned the nonattendance of focused local five star competitions, which denied Bangladesh players a chance to create.

Bangladesh has two top notch titles—the National Cricket Group and establishment based Bangladesh Cricket Class—however neither of them has standard timetable and regularly the matches are held in under-arranged grounds.

“I can’t attempt players at the worldwide level, which is the shocking thing in Bangladesh cricket that we are confronting,” said Hathurusinghe.

“We have had a ton of wounds and players lose shape since we haven’t played for quite a while.

“We don’t know where the quick bowlers are at this stage. It involves simply believing the players that we have in our middle and being quiet,” he said.

Bangladesh won only seven of their 93 Tests with five of their wins coming against kindred strugglers Zimbabwe.

Their second Test against Britain will start in Dhaka on 28 October.
