Habibul Bashar frustrated with players’ fitness and discipline

Despite starting the tour of India with a stunning victory in the T20I game, the journey fell apart for Bangladesh as they faced four consecutive defeats to end it all on a disappointing note. Bangladesh’s inability to continue running along the winning track in India was attributed by many towards the dearth of fitness and discipline and national selector Habibul Bashar had no reason to disagree.

The former skipper, who played 50 Tests and 111 ODIs for Bangladesh, believes that things went to the dogs because there was a world of difference between his unit’s fitness and discipline as compared to the men in blue. Moreover, the 47-year old claimed that no players comes to him asking for any holidays when playing in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), which sits as the premier domestic T20 tournament of the country.

In this way, Habibul Bashar blamed the cricketers for being a bit irresponsible when it comes to playing for the national team. Moreover, the Kushtia born urged the Tigers to understand their responsibility as it can help them become a better cricketer and fetch their country a lot of victories in future.
