Greatest Bangladesh cricketer of all time and current #1 All-Rounder, Shakib-Al-Hasan had his say on the current Bangladesh team. According to Shakib-Al-Hasan, Bangladesh are improving day by day. He says defeating Bangladesh at home is not an easy task anymore. Furthermore, he stated that it is the mindset which makes them confident that they will win the tests. Shakib said:
“Previously the mindset was to draw against big teams – try to play five days, make a draw. But we never used to get the result. Then we started thinking, ‘Let’s try to win – let’s try to play and win the game.’ It’s the mindset that changed, and that made us believe that we can win.”
Australia are touring Bangladesh for the first time since 2006. They will play 2-match test series against Bangladesh at home. The test series is starting on Sunday, August 27.
Bangladesh tied the series 1-1 against England, who toured them last year. Mehedi Hasan was the find of the series and made a valuable impact in the first ever test win for Bangladesh against top 8 teams. After that win, Bangladesh play with an entirely different mindset, and they play to win.
Not only this, but they also defeated Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka in a test match marking their second win against top 8 teams.
