Bangladesh head coach Steve Rhodes said that he is confident that Tigers will conquer the pace bowling threat of West Indies when the two sides meet each other at Taunton on June17.

According to Rhodes West Indian pacers are very well known to his charges and they are quite aware of their strength and weakness considering they have encountered them quite often in the recent past.

“We played against West Indies bowlers in Ireland recently. Oshane Thomas as well, we played against him in Bangladesh just before Christmas,’’ Rhodes told reporters after the washed-out game against West Indies.

‘’So, we are well aware of what they got and we know what’s coming. We got plans to try and deal with that,’’ he said.

Bangladesh recently won the tri-series in Ireland featuring West Indies and Ireland and in that series, Bangladeshi batsmen tackled the pace of Sheldon Cottrel, Kemar Roach and Jason Holder very well.

Tigers clinched their maiden multi-nation tournament championship after beating West Indies in the final.

Steve Rhodes’s Bangladesh also faced a similar West Indies bowling attack in Bangladesh in 2018. In that bilateral series, Bangladesh won that ODI series 2-1. These two series have given Rhodes confidence that Bangladeshi batsmen are good enough to play the West Indies pace bowlers.   

Bangladesh coach is happy with the way the Bangladesh team has played the ODI cricket, against South Africa they faced pacers really well. But in the last match against England Bangladeshi batsmen struggled against Archer’s extreme pace. Rhodes praised Archer in the press conference and admitted that he was too hot to handle.

“I am very happy the way we have played white ball particularly when it's short. I think you have seen some of our games particularly against South Africa, that didn’t worry us. I think the England game was the class of Archer's special pace. He is difficult to pick up as well.” He added.

Bangladesh will face West Indies on 17th June, it’s a must win game for Bangladesh. As they have only 3 points on the board so far, to go through the semifinal win against the Windies in a must.
