There is not much turn in the wicket. Yet suddenly the ball turned a little too much in one of Taizul Islam’s deliveries. And there was no way to immediately understand the mistake of not taking a ‘review’ out of confusion. TV replay showed Sri Lankan opener Lahiru Thirimanne was out. If he had been returned then, Sri Lanka’s innings might not have caught the rhythm of the 114-run partnership. Coming to the virtual press conference at the end of the day, Taizul himself said that they had misunderstood for the extra turn, ‘actually made a big turn. For this I myself was hesitant. Apart from that, if the review was ruined at that time (later) there could be a problem. And to make a big turn (wicket) seemed to be missing. So it was not taken anymore. ‘
As the review was not taken, however, Bangladesh did not have to pay a high price. Mehdi Hasan Miraj stopped Thirimanne after making fifty. Angelo Mathews, who was settled on the wicket, was stopped by Taizul. And the aggressive batsman Oshado Fernando has somehow gifted the wicket to Taskin Ahmed who is bowling well. There is no help for the bowlers in the wicket, there is a mantra of success hidden in the catch of Oshado behind the wicket. This wicket should be bowled as controlled as possible. Run can also be prevented by tight bowling. If you can keep the batsman tied to the wicket, the way to give wickets with bad shots can be opened from instability. Taizul also said that the Bangladesh team is looking forward to success for the time being. Because there is no help in the wicket. Not for pacers, not for spinners.
In this situation, if we can bring order in bowling and prevent runs and (when the opportunity arises), then it is possible to go to a place where we can win. ‘The hosts used the same formula in the Candy Test. The Sri Lankan bowlers, thrilled to see the green grass of the wicket, bowled randomly on the first day of the match. However, realizing that no help could be obtained from the wicket, they chose a controlled bowling table from the second day. Although he bowled accordingly, he did not have much success. Because Nazmul Hossain Shant and Mominul Haque have played very well. If the Sri Lankan batsmen continue to show such patience, then it is a day of frustration for the bowlers of Bangladesh. But before the start of another new day, Taizul wanted to see a picture of hope. Taskin Ahmed has tried to bowl as well as possible even on lifeless wickets for bowlers. The fast bowler, who took all three maidens in the first spell of four overs, also breathed a sigh of relief to the two Sri Lankan openers. On the fourth day of the match, Taizul expected the same bowling from him. I hope he will have the same effort tomorrow. ‘
