Bangladesh’s fielding in recent times have been awful to say the least. In the last edition of World Cup which took place in England and Wales, Bangladesh paid price of shoddy fielding as dropped chances of Kane Williamson, David Warner and Rohit Sharma went on to see them losing crucial games of the showpiece event.
Even in the ODI series against Sri Lanka, Bangladesh didn’t record impressive fielding outings which frustrated the head coach and former cricketer Khaled Mahmud. The Dhaka born added that Bangladesh’s players lack aggression in field which hampers their way to produce strong fielding efforts. Highlighting examples of players like Ricky Ponting and Jonty Rhodes, Mahmud urged his side to improve their fielding standards.
“We are dropping catches almost regularly and that is disappointing because you can always improve your fielding by doing basics right. Moreover, we hardly managed to restrict runs in our recent games. We cannot become a top side without improving our fielding,” said by the 48-year old who slammed his team’s fielding in England and Sri Lanka.
