We are good, that’s why we’re here: B’desh coach

We are good, that’s why we’re here: B’desh coach
“For us, we have nothing to prove to anyone because we know that we are good. And that’s precisely the reason we are here. We are here to embrace the opportunity presented to us and enjoy the situation,” Hathurusingha of Sri Lankan origin said during an interaction at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The coach didn’t dwell too much on the strength of their formidable opponents but praised India’s fast bowling unit. “India are playing very good cricket. They are a good batting side. But the key has been how well their fast bowlers have bowled. That’s one area that we would probably keep an eye on,” Hathurusingha said.

Asked what has been the difference between Bangladesh teams of the past and this current batch, which has qualified for the last eight, the coach replied, “I can’t speak about past as I have not seen Bangladesh’s dressing rooms of earlier times. But this team believes in itself. I think we always talk about clear role for our players. The boys have been told to play freely. We’re not afraid to make decisions in the middle and the culture we have created in the dressing room has also helped.”
