I don’t feel any pressure: Rhodes
Steve Rhodes A-A+

||CF Correspondent||

Bangladesh head coach Steve Rhodes is feeling no pressure in the ongoing series against Zimbabwe as he believes the hosts will make a turnaround in series-deciding second Test match starting on November 11, at Dhaka.

Bangladesh lost the opening series opener by 151 runs and will be eyeing to hit back strongly when they take on the visitors.

“I don’t feel pressure. These guys are really determined to put things right and that’s what I love about the Bangladeshi dressing room. They keep surprising me and they keep bouncing back,” Rhodes told reporters at Sylhet on Thursday.

Rhodes said that the batting debacle in the first innings led to their downfall and wants the hosts to not repeat the same mistake.
Zimbabwe got on top of the Bangladesh after bundling them out for 143 runs that helped them earn a 139-run first innings lead and the Tigers failed to deal with the mounting pressure afterwards.

“Certainly the only thing that went wrong in this game was our batting in the first innings. We lost the toss when there was not much happening and we did a great job in bowling them out for 282. Then we needed 350 or 400 and if we didn’t get that score then it was always going to be difficult batting last,” said Rhodes.

“So we missed an opportunity in our first innings batting and there was nothing wrong with our plans or tactics, we just made a mess of it in our first innings.

“To get rolled for 140 and be a 140 behind, going into the third innings of the game was quite disastrous for us. It’s something we will have to put right, whatever happens at Mirpur with our plans,” he added.
