Jamie Siddons impressed with players mentality to win
CRICDOT DESK : When he was the head coach of Bangladesh, the team was broken. Shakib and Tamim are just coming up then. Siddons, who served from 2007 to 2011, left the Bangladesh team in one place. Returning after 11 years, he sees all the big stars as well as young talents scattering.
This Australian coach is very happy to see this changed Bangladesh team. He says his work has been greatly reduced.
Bangladesh has already won the ongoing ODI series against Afghanistan. Afif-Miraj’s incredible batting in the first match and Liton-Mushfiq’s classic Siddons in the second match filled the mind. “The more matches they play, the more chances they have to perform in big matches,”
Siddons told an official news conference on Saturday. These matches are stressful for boys. They had to win the matches. The youngsters are doing well in these matches, it is good to see. Experienced people will do well. Doing good to young people with them is a big deal. ‘
Despite being hired as a batting consultant, Siddons is thrilled to see the Bangladesh fast bowlers, ‘there are four or five fast bowlers who are 6 feet tall, who can bowl at 140 kilometers per hour. It’s very exciting. The team still has the best all-rounder in the world, who contributes something in every match. I saw Miraj, Afif and Liton doing well. Hopefully, their skills will improve over time. My job is half done because there are so many good cricketers in the team. But here the Afghans have to play three spinners.
It’s not easy at all. There will be four fast bowlers to play against South Africa, Australia and India. We have to be prepared to do well in that condition. We are a good team. We have to do better. The boys have to go one step further to do well outside the country. ‘
