Russell Domingo


CRICDOT DESK : Bangladesh will play the role of underdog in the series against South Africa, said head coach Russell Domingo. He considers the host team as his favorite because of Bangladesh’s past record on South African soil. All parties in their own country get additional benefits. Similarly, in South Africa, South Africa is also a very strong team, especially against the countries of the subcontinent. Bangladesh has never beaten South Africa in South Africa.

Although Bangladesh team has good rhythm in ODI format. The Tigers also top the ICC ODI Super League. However, the coach is reluctant to accept Bangladesh as the favorite of this series.

He said, “I don’t think Bangladesh is the favorite. Just a few days ago, South Africa defeated India 3-0. We’ve been underdogs here, we haven’t won a match here before. However, we are optimistic about the ODI team. We have been playing well in this format for a long time. Looking forward to a competitive series. ‘

“But South Africa is the favorite. They will play in their own condition, where it is very difficult to lose them. It is an opportunity for us to do something special. I want to do what I could not do here in Bangladesh before. ‘

Although the coach of Bangladesh, Domingo is a South African. He also had a coaching career for this team. This time his country’s opponent is Domingo, because Bangladesh is playing under him. The matter is quite thrilling to Domingo.

“It’s very exciting,” he said. They are big teams, playing at one of the great venues. We know the series is going to be tough. But I am looking forward to the series. ‘
