WI VS BAN: Following a dismal performance by the Bangladeshi Batsman in the first Test match of the present series against the West Indies. Bangladesh coach Russell Domingo believes the batters are now lacking in confidence.
He was dissatisfied with the way his batters were dismissed, claiming that there were too many soft dismissals and poor bat-handling decisions. Bangladesh could have scored more runs in both innings, according to Domingo, if the encounter had not been marred by multiple soft dismissals.
Bangladesh scored 103 and 245 runs in the first and second innings, respectively, and are on the verge of losing the match on the fourth day. At the moment, all of the batters are lacking in confidence.
Some major actors, like Mominul (Haque) and (Nazmul Hossain) Shanto, are fearful. Confidence is a major deal in cricket, and they don’t seem to have it in their batting right now.
WI VS BAN: They Are Low On Confidence- Russell Domingo
“It’s not good. In both innings, too many soft dismissals and too many poor decisions with the batting and 103 runs in the first innings. We could have gotten more than that and 245 in the second innings could have gotten more than that, so it’s the bottom line. Too many soft dismissals in this particular Test match.” Russell Domingo.
West Indies bowlers dominated the game from the start, dismissing three of Bangladesh’s top four batsmen for zero runs in the first innings and six batters total in the innings.
With three wickets for 33 runs, seamer Jayden Seales was the standout of the bowlers. In response, the West Indies struck 265, taking a large 163-run advantage, thanks to skipper Kraigg Brathwaite’s important 94 runs.
Despite some resistance in their second innings, Bangladesh could not put enough runs on the board to force a rematch. Now as they were only able to set a meager target of 84. West Indies are on 49 for three wickets at the end of Day 3. And are well on their way to a victory on Day 4.
