Bangladesh off-spinner Mehidy Hasan said that they should take preparation for the biggest global tournament during the ongoing Dhaka Premier League.

Bangladesh National Cricket Team will take on West Indies and Ireland in a tri-nation series starting from May 5 at Ireland as part of their practice campaign ahead of their ICC World Cup 2019 assignments.

Meanwhile, several national cricketers are seen to be taking part in the ongoing Dhaka Premier League to get some confidence under their belt ahead of the World Cup following the tour of Ireland.  

“We have Ireland series ahead, and then we will go to play the World Cup. It seems to me that we should get ready within one month after the ongoing premier league because we will have not much time after that,’’ said Mehidy

“We have not got much time after that, so have to take preparation during this premier league. I have been bating for a long time today.  I will play a game tomorrow, I will bowl again the very next day, and will do workout in gym,’’ he said.

Mehidy added that for the time being he is looking forward to make him competent so that he can add some runs in the end.

“Have to work on fitness within this one month of premier league. There are some drills also, and some bowling skills have to improve.

“I am now working on it… how to do the 20/30 runs at the end. Because at that time, many good bowlers come to bowl, and there are also different fielding sets.

“I am preparing on those things… can deal with those situations. I have seen it in New Zealand.  The conditions of England are very similar to New Zealand. So, I have been able to find my lacks and improvement from New Zealand. Now I want to use those in the country,’’ he said.

“I believe our team is very good and the 20-30 runs are very important during the crisis. I'm working on it, I can’t a get a chance to play a big innings. The team expect from 20/30/40 runs or a partnership at the end which can be helpful for the team,’’ he said.
