Bangladesh lead trainer Russell Domingo has conceded that his side are the dark horses in the forthcoming series against South Africa. Bangladesh neglected to acquire a solitary success in South Africa across designs with the hosts dominating the competition in six Tests, nine ODIs and four T20Is. Be that as it may, Domingo is confident of at last breaking the streak this time.

“We have most certainly come here as longshots, having not dominated a match here previously,” Domingo told columnists on Wednesday (March 16). “South Africa, who beat India 3-0 as of late, will begin as top choices. They are playing in their own circumstances where they are an intense side to beat,.

”They will begin as top choices, yet that suits us coming as longshots. It offers us an extraordinary chance to accomplish something uniquely amazing. We need to accomplish something that no Bangladesh group has done here previously. I’m exceptionally content with our one-day group. We have a decent equilibrium. We have a decent piece of batting profundity. We have a few involvement with the top-request, and a few invigorating quick bowlers coming through. We have a reasonable 50-over side which provides us with a ton of certainty going into the series.”

Domingo likewise further expressed that the presence of star allrouder Shakib Al Hasan will support the crew. The veteran was at first not normal to be in South Africa before at last consenting to visit. “He adjusts our group,” Domingo noted. “It is generally troublesome when he isn’t in the group – you are don’t know whether you really want an additional a bowler or additional batsman.

“It is incredible to have a player of his type around. He is capable. He has been here previously. He is a top notch player. We are exceptionally glad that he is in the visit. His energy, mentality and hard working attitude has been incredible. For me there are no senior or junior players. They are generally only eleven players. A ton becomes said about senior and junior players however for me it is pointless.”

Bangladesh have been poor on the field lately and to exacerbate the situation, their recently named handling mentor Shane McDermott hasn’t arrived at South Africa in the wake of testing positive for Covid-19. “It will be not any more troublesome than elsewhere,” Domingo said on the difficulties for the defenders in South Africa. “Whether you are handling here, New Zealand or Bangladesh, a ball is a ball. You need to get it. Clearly there’s a touch of height here. The ball voyages a piece faster. There’s no significant contrast between getting here and getting in Bangladesh,” he closed down.
