While Bangladesh's batting pup up a strong fight in all of their World Cup matches, it was their bowling attack which frequently let them down. The pacers, in particular, were found to be lacking the venom that leads to great success.
In a bid to address the shortcomings of Bangladesh's pace department, they recently roped in the South African Charl Langeveldt to replace Caribbean legend Courtney Walsh.
Langeveldt, who previously coached Afghanistan and South Africa in different capacities, remarked his desire to witness Bangladeshi bowlers performing overseas. Although they have become a potent force at home, Bangladesh are still a long way behind in replicating similar levels of success in foreign conditions.
“The challenge for me is to find seamers who can bowl outside Bangladesh. They can bowl at good distance in South Africa and Australia. If you look at India, now they have got three seamers and they can win games at South Africa and Australia. We have to find seamers somehow so when we go to those conditions abroad, we can compete,” he said.
