Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo said on Sunday that they are ready to experiment in the upcoming Pakistan tour as they are eyeing to have a settled squad ahead of the next ICC World Twenty20, schedule in Australia in2020.
Bangladesh have formed the T20 squad with lots of youngsters and it implies that they are not only thinking of the Pakistan series but also having an eye for the global tournament.
There are lot of top-order in the team that includes Tamim Iqbal, Nazmul Hossain, Naim Sheikh, Liton Kumar Das and Afif Hossain and Soumya Sarkar and according to the South African they are ready to give exposure to the youngster at different phases.
‘’It is a young group of players. It shows the depth within our system. Hopefully some of these players can make a big play to get into the World Cup squad. It is not finalized yet,’’ said Domingo.
‘’Depending on how they do (whether team management will continue with the young group of cricketers). If a player is out of his depth, we can’t keep going with him. If a player has potential to develop, you have to run with those players. After this series, we have to keep our squad as small as possible. I think we can play with a maximum of 16 or 17 players in the next couple of series,’’ he said adding that he is open for experimentation “Guy like Soumya, who batted No 3 in India, may end up batting at No 6 in Pakistan. Riyad may bat at No 5. Afif might come up to No 3 or 4. Shanto has finished his campaign well. The best players can play under any conditions, in any positions. If you bat Morgan at No 3 or 6, he is successful. If you bat Kane Williamson at No 3 or 5, he will find a way to do that role,’’ he said.
‘’It is a great opportunity for the young players to find new strings to their game. I am excited by it. If a guy like Liton has to bat at No 4 for a game or two, that’s fine. If Mithun has to bat at No 3, that’s okay. If Afif has to go from No 6 to opening, he has to learn to do those things,’’ he said
