Mahmudul Hasan Joy is all set to make his international debut today
CRICDOT DESK : U-19 world cup winner opener Mahmudul Hasan Joy is all set to make his international debut for Bangladesh. Despite taking the lead in the first innings of the Chittagong Test, it was not possible to build a respectable score due to poor batting in the second innings. That is why Bangladesh lost by a big margin of 8 wickets.
There is no alternative to winning the Dhaka Test to save the series. Otherwise, Bangladesh team will be whitewashed in Tests like T20 series.
Despite losing the Chittagong Test, Bangladesh will enter the field with the aim of winning the Dhaka Test. Muminul Haque Sourav said that our strength is batting. If I can bat for two to two and a half days or five or six sessions, I will be able to return to the game. Of course I am optimistic. No one enters the field to lose a match. We must go down to win.
Shakib Al Hasan and pacer Taskin Ahmed did not play in the Chittagong Test due to injuries. They are in Dhaka Test. In the presence of Shakib Al Hasan in the Dhaka Test, relief has returned to the Bangladesh team.
After playing 10 Tests against Pakistan, Bangladesh has drawn one and lost 9. In all, Bangladesh played 122 Tests and saw victory in only 14 of them. They lost the remaining 92 matches.
