Bangladesh batting coach Jamie Siddons was optimistic and looking forward to the limited over series' following the Test series disaster. 

Bangladesh became the fastest team to lose 100 Tests as the hosts West Indies completed a 2-0 series sweep, winning both the Tests inside 4 days.

"The Test matches weren't great, but I'm focused on the T20s now. I haven't got enough time to see how my players perform in the T20s since I came here. But I do know that we've got some really good players in the team and let's see how these three games play out," Siddons said.

The coach also stated that he would require more time to work to improve the techniques of the batters.

"I've got only five training sessions since I came here. There are a lot of matches going on and you can't work on a new batting technique in the middle of a series. So I think more time is required to work with the batters individually. At the moment we are always preparing to play a game," he said

Siddons said he is against dropping and changing players and believes experience is important for ensuring the development of the cricketers.

"I think what you're going to find in most teams when you get experience in international cricket, you get better. And that's what we need to make sure and be aware of. We can't keep dropping and changing players, they're only going to get better by playing international cricket," he added.
