We will comeback at next match: U-19 skipper Rakibul

U-19 skipper Rakibul


CRICDOT DESK : Bangladesh started the World Cup in a hurry. Rakibul Hasan’s team lost the first match to England by seven wickets. It is difficult to win with less than 100 runs. Bangladesh, which was reduced to 96, could not do that. With 149 balls left, he surrendered helplessly. Jacob Bethel easily led England to victory in the 44-run innings. Bangladesh captain Rakibul Hasan blamed the batsmen for such a loss. We have to sit down (discuss) batting, we have to improve more. ‘

If Ripon Mandal, the 11th batsman, had not scored 33 runs, Bangladesh’s innings could have been a more shocking score. If Ripon can do well in the end, Rakibul doesn’t see the reason why the best batsmen of the team can’t, “I want to turn around with strong batting in the next match. We have a lot of good batters. In the end, they also showed determination. If our main batsmen can perform well then we will definitely turn around in the next match. ‘

Bangladesh will play the next two matches in Group A on January 20 against Canada and January 22 against the United Arab Emirates. UAE lost to Canada by 49 runs in the first match. They were bowled out for 235 in reply to the UAE’s 284 runs. Rakibul wants to play his best without thinking of two ICC teammates, “There are still two matches left. You have to win both the matches to go to the next round. We have to play our best for this. We did well in bowling. I got help from the wicket. I am happy with bowling and fielding. We have to focus on batting and improve. ‘

Bangladesh won the toss and elected to bat, losing four wickets for just six runs. This catastrophe could not be overcome. Joshua Boyden, an 18-year-old fast bowler from England, won the match with four wickets for 16 runs. “It’s probably the best start,” said England captain Tom Prest. It was good to lose the toss. It’s great to keep a team like Bangladesh below 100 runs. ‘
