Even just a day before the first Test of the two-match series between Bangladesh and West Indies in Antigua, it remains uncertain whether the Tigers’ fans would be able to watch the matches live on TV.
Bangladesh batter Mosaddek Hossain said that the ongoing three-day practice match between Bangladesh and CWI President’s XI in Antigua will definitely help the visiting sides’ batters adjust to the condition in the Caribbean ahead of their multi-format series against the home side.
Bangladesh’s star opener Tamim Iqbal hit a hundred, but struggling left-handed batter Mominul Haque could not even open his account on the opening day of their ongoing three-day warm-up match against CWI President’s XI at the Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua today.
Adjusting to the conditions remains the main issue for Bangladesh players when touring any side, especially any side from outside the subcontinent. But according to Bangladesh batter Nazmul Hossain Shanto, the players have been able to adapt to the conditions in the Caribbean pretty well.
Paceman Taskin Ahmed has undergone a very positive transformation over the course of the last two years. Since missing out on the ODI World Cup in England, Taskin has slowly but surely become the mainstay of Bangladesh's pace unit.
