Skipper and coach concerned about fielding
CRICDOT DESK : Tiger cricketers have dust in the memory of the tour of South Africa. Mushfiqur Rahim left Test leadership with tears in his eyes after visiting Proteas six years ago. Taskin Ahmed was dropped from the Test team for bowling poorly.
ODI captain Tamim Iqbal is not bringing that experience of playing in South Africa. He missed the last ODI and Test series in New Zealand. He sought the help of cricketers playing in New Zealand before the tough series. He also expressed frustration with the team’s fielding.
The left-arm opener said, ‘Unfortunately, I was not on the New Zealand tour. I have to talk to those who were on that trip. Many of those tours are in this team. So they can tell the process. You have to know what they are thinking now to win in South Africa. ‘
Bangladesh cricketers will leave the country on March 11 to play a series in South Africa. Tamimra has started optional practice keeping that series in front. “I am worried about fielding,” Tamim told the media on Wednesday after the practice. Fielding frustration has no place to hide. You have to give the best fielding to do well in any format. Fielding has been a problem for us for years. ”

Tamim wants to use the memories and experience of winning a Test in New Zealand to play well in South Africa. The victory gives him confidence, “The Test win in New Zealand will give us confidence. For many years we did not play well in New Zealand. Probably won after 30-32 matches. The team will play in South Africa with the same expectation.
Tamim is the best opener in the country who is happy to play ODI with South Africa full strength team. “It’s important to play against the best team to do well in the next World Cup,” he said. Only then will our weakness be caught. ‘
