There will be a significant amount of focus on Test skipper MOMINUL and the rest of the Bangladesh team when they board a flight for Sri Lanka today to take part in a two-match Test series.
The Tigers will be desperate to return to the winning ways after losing their last eight international games across all formats, the latest being 3-0 whitewashes in New Zealand in both ODI and T20I series.
Following a thrashing 2-0 whitewash against a relatively inexperienced West Indies side on home soil earlier this year,
Bangladesh have had to contend with questions over their approach and a lack of improvement in the game’s elite format. Bangladesh managed to win just one of their six Tests since MOMINUL took charge as Test captain in 2019 and the soft-spoken 29-year-old must show character as a leader and lead from the front both on and off the field to bolster a demotivated team ahead of the tour.
“Representing the team at the international level has some pressure in it. You have to take that much pressure especially when results are not going your way. It depends on how you take it.
I have digested the fact that I am the captain, so I think I can handle the pressure. I think it is a positive type of pressure,” he said.
