Domingo disappointed over Saif-Sadman
CRICDOT DESK : Before ending thr fourth day, Pakistan needed 93 more runs to win. Abid was batting for 56 runs. Abdullah Shafiq unbeaten on 53 runs. The Tigers’ relentless bowling did not crack Pakistan’s opening pair. On the contrary, if there is nothing superhuman, Bangladesh has no way to avoid defeat in this match.
“We did really well the first two days,” said head coach Russell Domingo at the end of the fourth day’s play. The lion’s share of the third day was good. But I did not bat well in the last session yesterday (Sunday). Which puts a lot of pressure. Which is frustrating to look at. From that point of view, we really played very good Test cricket. I scored a competitive score in the first innings. Spin and pace bowlers have given the lead by bowling well. On the third day, in the last session, we were under pressure due to a bad game.
Despite taking the lead in the first innings of the ongoing Test against Pakistan in Chittagong, Bangladesh could not hold the reins of the match. There are very few instances of match rates from such a situation. Pakistan’s opening pair is laying the groundwork. Bangladesh’s opening pair is disappointing. “It’s very frustrating,” Domingo said. Sadman scored a century in his previous Test. Saif is still inexperienced. We are looking for new ball handling strategies. It is difficult for inexperienced batsmen to play against standard bowlers. We have to work with them.
