Bangladesh’s pace bowler Abu Jayed said on Thursday that they are taking heart from the fact they are able to trouble the opponent with their swing.

Bangladeshi pace bowlers did trouble the New Zealand batsmen on both the Test matches but as they failed to keep the pressure for a sustainable period it helped their opponent to grow from strength to strength.

The improvement can be considered a noteworthy achievement as the pace bowlers hardly have the opportunity to play Test matches in their own territory as the host is more comfortable with their tried and tested formula- toppling the opponent with turning wicket.

According to Jayed, pace bowling coach Courtney Walsh urged his pace bowlers to keep up the improvement during the prep talk ahead of the series concluding the last Test, scheduled from March 16.

“Basically more than our [pace unit] performance the result of the team is more important. If our team could get a result than it would have been more pleasing  

“We still have one match to go and we have developed the faith that we can swing the ball. The batsmen are finding it difficult to play our deliveries and it is increasing our self-belief,’’ he said.

“We were talking with Walsh today and it seemed we are improving in one area and that is we are able to swing the ball more than what we do in Bangladesh,’’ he added.

New Zealand cleanly swept them away in the three-match OD I ’s and followed it by sealing the Test series as well by winning the opening two matches of the three-match rubber and the visitors need to come up with some plan to resist further humiliation.
