Sriram willing to make adjustments to Bangladesh’s T20 World Cup team

Sridharan Sriram, the technical director of Bangladesh, spoke candidly about the team’s strategy before the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia.

Before the T20 World Cup, Bangladesh’s technical director Sridharan Sriram hasn’t decided on an opening partnership and wants to be flexible with his alternatives at the top of the order.

In the most recent tri-series in New Zealand, the Tigers used four different lineups at one and two. Despite the recent years’ repeated tweaking with the opening slots in the shortest format, Sriram claimed that the configuration was clear.

“The captain, myself, and the director are all on the same page, in my opinion, since we are extremely clear about the best team we want to play.

“We know exactly which combos we want. I believe we have two to three combinations in mind, which we may change and adapt depending on the circumstances of the day.”

According to the opposition and the playing conditions on any given day, the former all-rounder for India also said that Bangladesh will continue to change the players at the top of the order during the T20 World Cup. Despite Bangladesh’s lack of success in the New Zealand tri-series, Sriram was confident that his squad would find its form during the World Cup.

“While you see it as experiments, we see it as various combinations. When you put your players in various scenarios and observe how each one of them reacts, you can learn more about them. I believe we have gained a lot of knowledge. We’re extremely clear about the lineups we use while playing other teams, “said he.

“I believe that everything needs to work out for Bangladesh to win the game; it’s not only about one spot (opening). It’s not just about the pace bowlers or the opening position. It concerns the whole squad.”

Potential team modifications for the T20 World Cup?

Soumya Sarkar and Shoriful Islam continue to compete for a position on the side traveling to Australia after giving Bangladesh a good selection headache. Sriram confirmed what the Bangladesh pace bowling coach had recently said about likely roster adjustments before the cutoff date.

“Soumya played a shot and exited the game. That’s the goal, “said he. “I believe he put the team above himself and played hard. When we only scored six or seven runs in the first few overs, he attempted to get going. He exited while trying to quicken the speed, but it happened “.

“I believe there are encouraging indicators because he played well at number three in the previous game. We need to truly instill trust in a player like him. There is yet time (to bring changes in the World Cup squad). There will undoubtedly be conversations, and we are accessible.”

Bangladesh’s World Cup group-stage opener will be against South Africa, followed by matches against India and Pakistan, two of Asia’s top nations.
