Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza, Bangladesh have been in the middle of a treacherous run in South Africa, having failed to win a single game. The treatment continued into the third ODI as well, when they were handed a 200-run defeat to end the series 0-3.
“This tour has been alarming for Bangladesh cricket and with more bilateral tours and the World Cup coming up we, as a playing unit, have to look after these things quickly,” Mortaza said. “We haven’t adjusted to the conditions. But it has been happening since the Champions Trophy. We have to improve quickly or the overseas bilateral series in the future will become very difficult.”
“We have to be prepared to play on these types of wickets the next time we go on a tour. It has been a tough tour. I should have been more aggressive, like I was in the Champions Trophy. Our bowlers have to learn what to bowl where 300-350 runs are scored quite regularly. There will be flat wickets in some places and they have to come up with some kind of a plan to earn success,” he said.
