Bangladesh spin adviser Daniel Vettori is optimistic about the upcoming matches that await Bangladesh. He believes that the key in these matches will be the spin because he expects the maximum of his team, and that is what they need to win.
Given the team they have, Bangladesh can achieve positive results against New Zealand "I think spin can play a big part. You see how successful Mitch Santner and Ish Sodhi have been in the recent series." "Even Ashton Agar and Adam Zampa played a role.
Everyone knows that spin is an important part of white-ball cricket,'' Vettori, who joined the Bangladesh team after a long gap on Wednesday told reporters, as quoted by cricbuzz Much is expected of Mehedy Hasan given the experience and quality he possesses.
New Zealand players will have to pay special attention to him. If Hasan is in the right form, hard work awaits New Zealand. '' Mehedy Hasan (Miraz) in particular, how experienced he is, and how successful he was in the recent series against West Indies, I think he can bring a lot to the table,'' he said.
''He will be backed up by Mahedi and Nasum. I think they can really find a place in the team and contribute to performance,'' he added.
Vettori was unable to be with his team due to COVID-19 ''I am very happy to be back with the Bangladeshi boys in Queenstown.
It is exciting to see everyone again after about a year. It is nice to see all the familiar faces, particularly the spin bowlers, and getting back in the nets with them." "It has been a long time, so any cricket or outdoor stuff is great,'' he said.
''New Zealand has been fortunate as we have been able to keep going with sports. Bangladesh series will just be a continuation of that,'' he added. Tamim Iqbal will be a key figure in the team "I think Bangladesh is lucky coming into this tour with Tamim as captain.
He is very open-minded. Because he has come across the challenges of New Zealand before, he understands what hasn't worked in the past. I think he is positive around working towards things that can work,'' said Vettori.
''I think it is a great starting point for us. I think Bangladesh will try some things in this series. We know New Zealand is an exceptional team who are playing really well but hopefully we have learned from those prior experiences,'' he added.
