Ahead of the upcoming T20 and the ODI, the disappointing series defeat in the two-match Tests is very much alarming for the Tigers.
Ahead of the T20 and the ODI series (three-match each formation) it’s something a wake up call for the Tigers, whether the humiliation in the Test cricket will impact on their coming limited over series to start from June 2. Though the Tigers have been considered as matured enough in limited overs formations and have the ability to win against any team whether it is home or abroad.
But the most experienced and the Tigers’ captain Shakib Al Hassan taking the coming series (T20 and ODI) challenging and did not forget to mention the last year’s bitter experiences of last year against Pakistan and Afghanistan when he said, “A challenging series awaits Bangladesh as they begin their preparation for the T20 World Cup with three T20Is against West Indies, starting on July 2 (in the T20 World Cup last year, Bangladesh were knocked out in the second round, after that Bangladesh went down to Pakistan in three matches 3-0 in November and drew 1-1 with Afghanistan).
Meanwhile, despite making Mominul Haque a scapegoat, there was no positive impact on Tigers’ performance when they just staged dismal shows at the Derren Sammy Stadium in Saint Lucia, in the both first and second innings in the second Test.
Both the Tests in West Indies were ended inside four days, when Mominul played the first one and was cast off from the squad from the second Test but Tigers went down by 10 wickets in each matches.
