Russell Domingo out to bring calm to Bangladesh’s dressing room: Just focus on the cricket

Russell Domingo: Bangladesh’s head coach Russell Domingo said his team is focused on cricket rather than sleepy from outside criticism as they advance their journey through the T20 World Cup to the Super 12 stage.

Despite a day one loss to Scotland, Bangladesh qualified in the preliminary round, an event overshadowed by ongoing clashes between BCB president Nazmul Hasan and team captain Mahmudullah, who chose Hasan after comments from a long range of the president after losing to Scotland.

Mahmudullah criticized that it was not correct to question the commitment of the players.

While Hasan denied questioning the commitment of the players but remained firm in his position that the team’s approach to Defeat was really questionable.

Directing his attention to the Sri Lanka game, Domingo said that he knew what his first Super 12 opponent brought to the table given the opportunity of his encounters.

“I am just here to focus on the cricket. I can’t be too concerned about what gets said outside of the team. My focus is to prepare the team well mentally and physically for tomorrow,” Domingo told reporters.

“When you are playing for Bangladesh, there’s always going to be critical when things don’t go well. It is part of an international sport. A big part of coaching is for the team to focus on what they can control. There’s nothing we can do about what people are writing and saying.

”We can focus on our performances, we can evaluate our performances. Areas we feel we need to improve on. As soon as we worry about those types of things, it takes our focus away from what we need to focus on. We have talked long and hard about what we need to focus on and it’s cricket,” he added.

“I think we have played against Sri Lanka a bit over the last couple of months. We have had some good contests against them in ODIs and Tests. We have played against Hasaranga quite a bit over the last couple of months and we know what he is capable of,” he said.

Russell Domingo, who needs some quiet before Super 12, said he and his support team are working to make sure players don’t get disturbed by all the outside noise.

”These types of conditions can suit us. Sharjah is similar to the wickets in Dhaka. Hopefully, that can assist us in tomorrow’s game. These types of conditions can suit us. Sharjah is similar to the wickets in Dhaka. Hopefully, that can assist us in tomorrow’s game.

“The scores have come down considerably since the new wickets have been laid. Tall bowlers who hit the wicket have always been in the game. I came here to South Africa years ago. I remember Morne Morkel was very effective, the sort of hard length that he bowled. The ball skids through.

Domingo also said that Sharjah’s wicket, which mirrors those recently used in Dhaka, was a pre-match spur.

“If you bowl wicket to wicket, spin has an opportunity here. We are not known as a power-hitting side so the (shorter boundary) could favor us. We are also happy with the 2 pm starts. It suits us big time. It takes dew out of the equation. I think our spinners will come very much into the competition. We know a lot of the other teams are focused on the dew,” he said.

‘Mahedi, a three-in-one cricketer’

Bangladesh praised Mahedi Hasan, the all-rounder that travels and is also used as a float on the attack field.

“I am a big fan of Mahedi. I think the most important thing is his character. He is always up to fulfill any role in the team. It is not easy batting up the order, down the order. He never complains. He’s focused on what the team needed. He is versatile with the ball – he can bowl in the middle, at the death, and upfront.

“He is definitely a three-in-one cricketer for us. The big thing about his preparation is that he is happy to be doing any role. He sees them as a big challenge and takes them on 100 percent. I am happy with how his campaign has gone so far,” he concluded.
