Rajshahi Royals left-arm spinner Taijul Islam said on Monday that the performance of the spinners in the ongoing Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League is disappointing.
It looked like the BBPL turned out to be a heaven for the pace bowlers as they are dominating the show while the spinner is playing second fiddle to them.
Only Afghanistan off-spinner Mujeeb ur Rahman is currently in the top 10 wicket-takers list and it only indicates the performance of the slow bowlers in the tournament.
‘’This is a failure of our spinners. We played more or less in such wickets before,’’ said Taijul.
‘’But still I would say this is a failure. Definitely, if the spinners perform well even in the end, that will be good for everyone,’’ he said.
Taijul added that when a spinner is hit there is a possibility that the spinners are not brought back but the seasoned left-arm spinner is not ready to put that as an excuse for failing to perform.
‘’The team also has some requirements. If a bowler concedes 10-15 runs in first over, you will think twice to bring him back. The team will suffer and that’s why they are not brought back,’’ said Taijul adding that they need to perform in this condition so that they can perform well overseas.
‘’The wicket is very good. But when you play in overseas, you will have to play in more flat wickets. So the pressure will always be there. So not playing well is a failure of the spinners,’’ he concluded.
