Our Fast Bowlers Toiled Really Hard – Bangladesh Fast Bowling Coach

Bangladesh’s bowlers made sure that their team ended the first day of the Mount Maunganui Test feeling they are still in the game. It is not how they have usually bowled in this country whenever they have toured, particularly in the last four years.
 
What left many impressed was how accurate the Bangladesh bowlers were in the first hour and how they came back to take three wickets when the momentum seemed to have gone away to restrict New Zealand to 258 for 5.
 
Taskin Ahmed and Shoriful Islam, probably the ideal new-ball pair among Bangladesh’s current pack of fast bowlers, conceded just one run in the first 7.3 overs, in which Shoriful bagged the key scalp of Tom Latham and set forth a testing first hour for Devon Conway and Will Young. Shoriful took two wickets while Ebadot Hossain had one late while the day was closing out. But there were no wickets for Taskin, who bowled 20 overs. However, it was Taskin’s opening spell that troubled New Zealand, and contributed to Latham’s wicket. Gibson said that he would advice Taskin to be more patient.

“I think the fast bowlers bowled well in difficult conditions,” Gibson said. “They toiled really hard. It is hot today. I thought we were brilliant with the new ball. We pitched the ball up, swung it and beat the bat on numerous occasions. We could have had a few more wickets. We are playing against the best team in the world. There was a close lbw shout against Devon Conway. On another day, it is given out. Those are the small margins in international cricket. I am quite proud of the way the boys battled and kept going all day.”
 
“That’s Test cricket – that’s what I tell him. You will not get wickets every day. But tomorrow there’s still five wickets to get. Maybe he can get three or four wickets, after getting himself freshened up. He bowled very well today. The Conway wicket was important. Mominul bhai got us the breakthrough. We will now try to keep their run rate low, and get them bowled out on the second day.”
