Bangladesh is confident as they prepare them to take on India in the upcoming tri-nation final scheduled to be played at the County Ground in Hove on August 11.
Bangladesh youth sealed their slot in the coveted final of the tri-nation series with two matches to spare after Tanzid Hasan’s jaw-dropping century propelled Bangladesh Under-19 Cricket Team to a 72-run victory over their host England.
Though Bangladesh and India could not play against each other in their last group phase match due to rain interruption, the final is expected to be a mouthwatering clash with both sides trying to dominate against each other to clinch the trophy.
Bangladesh Under-19 bowling coach Mahbub Ali Zaki told Cricfrenzy on Saturday that his charges need to keep their nerve to come out victorious against their Asian neighbor.
‘’Certainly it will be battle of nerves and we need to keep our calm in the middle,’’ said Zaki.
‘’We have to play our normal cricket. They will try to attack us strongly. But we have to keep calm our nerves. We have played nicely throughout the tournament as a unit. Now we want to finish the final as a winning note,’’ he said.
Zaki emphasized on building partnership both in batting and bowling as he believe that will be the key to beat India while added that they just need to stick to their basics.
‘’Throughout the tournament Akbar and Touhid has made some partnerships. They have done really well for the team. I hope they will continue it on the final as well,’’ said Zaki.
‘’Our Bowlers helped each other on the field. There is not a particular bowler who bowled exceptionally well. But as a bowling unit they played very well and for that reason we are playing final. I hope our bowlers will play well in the final as well,’’ he added.
