Imrul urges attacking cricket against England
Imrul Kayes, who has been out of the national set up for a few years, believes that Bangladesh need to play attacking cricket against England in their upcoming white-ball home series next month.
The Tigers will host England after over six years but Imrul, who scored a hundred during that previous three-match ODI series, added that it would be important for the hosts to play fearless cricket against defending champions.
"I think you can't be complacent against a team like England, who are in great form. Obviously, they have a great pace-bowling attack and a few spinners in their side. But I think we are capable of beating them on our own soil. I can remember the last time they toured Bangladesh, I scored a hundred and I think my attacking mindset helped me play my natural game. I think our batters need to keep that in mind," Imrul told The Daily Star during the multimedia show 'Non Striker's End' yesterday.
Imrul, who led Comilla Victorians to a fourth Bangladesh Premier League title recently, also praised the re-appointment of Chandika Hathurusingha.
"I played under him during his first tenure and I must say Hathurusingha is one of the best tactical coaches I have ever worked with. He might have his own way of doing things, but he knows how to get the best out of players," he added.
