Rajshahi slow off the mark

Rajshahi can be the most successful domestic team, but in the BPL T20 competition, they have not been up to the mark in the first week.
The four-time first-class champions' Twenty20 franchise Duronto Rajshahi have lost both the games of the glitzy competition and moreover, have looked ordinary both with the bat and in the field. They lost to Chittagong Kings convincingly on the first night before sinking to Barisal Burners.
Against Chittagong they dropped as many as six catches, some of them too simple for professional cricketers and while that wasn't the biggest problem against Barisal, their batting floundered in the face of disciplined bowling.
Rajshahi's Pakistani all-rounder Abdul Razzaq yesterday said that they don't have a proper spinner in their ranks.
"The tournament has only started so it'll take time be coordinated. We don't have a really good spinner and that is our biggest weakness," said Razzaq.
Left-arm spinner Saqlain Sajib has played both matches and remained wicketless, quite different from his wicket-taking form over the years.
"We are lacking in confidence, something that is important in Twenty20s. We haven't also found the right combination. Let's see how we do in the next game," he added.
Rajshahi take on another winless outfit, Sylhet Royals, in today's first game at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.
