Bangladesh head coach Russel Domingo said that they need to work on Test and Twenty20 as he believes these are the two formats Tigers needs the most attention.

Bangladesh lost to Afghanistan in the lone Test match while they are heading for the Twenty 20 tri-nation involving Zimbabwe and Afghanistan.

‘’It’s interesting. I actually spoke to Sakib and asked him – what is the favorite format for Bangladesh? And he said fifty-over cricket. I said why then he said that’s the format they have grown up playing. A lot of school cricket, a lot of club cricket –that’s the format they play more. There is a lot of work to be done in Twenty20 and Test cricket –actually in all formats. But particularly in Test match format and Twenty20 format, these two formats are required attention in the next couple of months. Fortunately, there is no lot of one-day cricket and there is a lot of Test and Twenty20 cricket so we can try to improve in those formats,’’ Domingo told reporters.

‘‘When it comes to white-ball cricket, Bangladesh can beat anybody on the given day. We got some World-class performers in our side. Just look at the experience of the team. In 50-over World Cup, Bangladesh was the second-most experienced team. So there is no shortage of quality and no shortage of experience in the particular side. I think if I played with our potential, we will be very hard to beat,’’ he added.
