Bangladesh spin-bowling consultant Rangana Herath is expecting a sporting wicket in the upcoming Pakistan series which gets underway after the ongoing T20 World Cup.

Pakistan to play Three T20Is with two Tests as the T20 matches are to be played on November 19, 20, and 22 followed by Test series that starts with the opening Test from November 26 and the second Test from December 4.

Bangladesh have been in poor form in the ongoing tournament despite preparing themselves in slow-pitches and defeating big sides Australia (4-1) and New Zealand (3-2) at home.

“It all depends where we are going to play. I am sure we need to expect good pitches, which gives chance to batters and bowlers,” said Herath.

Herath is hopeful that leg-break Aminul Islam Biplob will get a chance to play in the upcoming series.

“We had three spinners so the management thought that it was the best combination. I am sure for the next tour against Pakistan or for the next few series Biplob will join the team,”

The spin-bowling coach is optimistic and believes Bangladesh will bounce back in the last game of the event against Australia.

“As a professional, we need to come back strongly. We have another game to go. We need to maintain that winning mindset and build winning confidence. We have to think about Bangladesh cricket’s way forward. We have another chance to win against Australia tomorrow. The guys will analyse what they have done, and what they have to do. I am sure will come back strongly tomorrow,” he added.
