We need Two or more years to be a strong side in Test: Mominul
PBC News: Bangladesh has been an established force in ODIs for a long time. Recently won the series on South African soil. But the Tigers are still weak in the other two formats of cricket due to lack of Test mentality and hard hitters. Especially after 22 years of Test status, the Tigers could not become a team.
Test captain Mominul Haque thinks that after two or three more years, Bangladesh will become stronger in Test format. After Muminul Haque became the captain, Bangladesh’s performance in Tests was very bad. There are also incidents like Test rate against Afghanistan on home soil. The recent Test victory in New Zealand has also created happy memories. However, Muminul said that this struggle is not ending now, ‘As you said, I have struggled since I became the captain. In fact, I think Test cricket will have to struggle for another two or three years. We are a very good team in ODIs, a steady team. It will take time to develop in the test. For this we have to suffer for some more time. Maybe two or three years. Then we will be a good team. ‘
Muminul is thrilled to have Mushfiqur-Sakib-Tamim together in the Test series in South Africa. There were many tours, not many tours. Whatever he is, since Tamim Bhai is back, he plays a bigger role than us, especially at the top. When he comes, things will get easier. And speaking of Taskin, he’s playing very well. He has been playing very well for the last two and a half years. Hopefully we can start this series very well. ‘
