‘Senior-Junior combination is a big factor for the team’
CRICDOT DESK : The Bangladesh team first toured South Africa in 2002. After that he visited in 2006 and 2017. The Tigers, who failed in the previous three tours, surprised the world with this tour.
The Bangladesh team has made history by winning the series as well as winning the first match in 20 years in Africa. Tamim Iqbal won by a huge margin of 9 wickets after bowling out the hosts for 154 runs at Centurion on Wednesday.
Minhazul Abedin Nannu, the chief selector of the Bangladesh team, was impressed by the historic victory of the Tigers. The former national team captain said it was great to be associated with a historic victory. Everyone has contributed. We will play cricket in South Africa – nobody cared. Turning around like this is a huge milestone for our cricket. If it is consistent in our cricket, then hopefully we will do well in the future.
The chief selector added that this is the rule. The team does not do well without this process. It is important to have the process. The combination of seniors and juniors is a big deal for any team. The team is doing well for this coordination. It is a matter of great satisfaction.

While watching the Dhaka League match at BKSP ground on Wednesday, Nannu said, “We have a balance in the 50-over game.” We always say that. This time I have shown it outside the country. I think we can do better. What is happening now is just the beginning. If we go ahead with the process, you will see that we will do well outside the country in all versions, not just ODIs.
Nannu added that there are definitely opportunities to work. There are some cricketers who I work with playing at home and abroad. We work on who can play when, where. If our pool can be further enriched, then the team will be stronger.
