Shakib available to bowl in Dhaka Test – Allan Donald

Allan Donald, Bangladesh’s pace bowling trainer, has said on Wednesday( December 21) that the hosts are awaiting Shakib al Hasan to drift in the alternate Test against India.

It’s a important demanded boost for Bangladesh as Shakib managed only 12 overs in the first innings of the first Test, due to the caricature injury that he sustained during the alternate ODI in the Dhaka. Bangladesh called left- arm incentive Nasum Ahmed as back- over of Shakib and after the opening Test head trainer Russell Domingo had suggested that Shakib might play purely as a batsman in the alternate match. Shakib’s incapability to drift could have forced the hosts to make a sprinkle of tweaks to their playing XI in order to accommodate three baits.
Donald, still, cleared the air on the dusk of the game.” Shakib is okay, he’ll drift. He was bruised and bombarded in the one- day game then, but he has gone through that. He’s available for selection, and available to coliseum,” Donald told journalists. Bangladesh will now have two bellwethers in their line- up for the Dhaka match.

” Any pickers then?( laughs) If I’m talking out of the room a little bit, it’ll be the same three baits and drinking back Taskin and Khaled as well. Sorry to the pickers but I’m talking out of the room a little bit. That is what I can see passing. Good news is that Shakib is good to go. Looking at the pitch, I suppose he’ll veritably much come into play,” he said.
” Taskin is good to go. He wanted to play the last Test but he was veritably important short of a gallop in terms of meter. The figure- up in the last Test was pivotal for him. He’s looking forward to the contest,” he said explaining Taskin’s rejection for the Test series nature. 

Donald also noted that Bangladesh demanded to follow the fur template from the alternate innings in Chittagong. Bangladesh were folded for 150 runs in the first innings and paid a heavy price for it.
” We want to win. It does not count where you play India, you put that in your loftiest order of achievements. We know 150 did not cut it for us. We’ve spoken about the values of our cooperation. We need to be much more flexible, which we showed in the alternate innings. We’re desparate to win. A lot of people including me wants to go home for a delayed Christmas with a palm under our belt.

” You got one chance to cash in. You win the toss, hopefully club first, and make 350 or 380. I’m guessing what the value of that first innings score might be. Pitch looks fairly dry so you have to cash in first innings. It’s your only chance to set the Test match up in the first innings,” he said.
” The alternate innings fur is a design for us. The youthful man has surprised numerous. It’s the first time I’ve seen Zakir. I love his station, boldness and attacking mindset. He has come to play. He showed that he can take on the veritably stylish bowlers. He has been a atrocious breath of fresh air. He backs himself,” he added

Donald also felt that their fielding needs to be sharper considering all the dropped catches.
Still, we’ve also shown that in the first innings when we had India 48 for three,” If we drift. We dropped couple of tough chances but we can not drop at this position. also you get put to the brand,” he said.

” When those chances come, you have to take it. The dropped catch by Ebadot( sorry Ebadot!) is kind of miscalculations that we can not make. It takes such a long time to make pressure and be patient, flexible and creative, game seems to be going nowhere. You just have to stick at it, and take that half- chance. That is the brutality of Test justice. We’ve to be much further clinical in that area,” he concluded.
