Bangladesh camp are aware of relatively short boundaries of Somerset County Ground where they will face the West Indies in their fourth match of the 2019 World Cup Monday.

The Tigers camp are planning to set their strategies in accordance with the conditions, and might also go for some changes in their bowling attack, bearing in mind that the Windies have plenty of big-hitters in their rank.

“It will be difficult for the openers against the new ball against any team. But I don’t think it will be a lot difficult for us once we negotiate well. Wicket is under cover so anything could happen in the first couple of overs. Normally there are high-scoring games here. We are hoping for the same. We have enough quality players in the Bangladesh side to cope with it. We are not overawed by the wicket. Once we get a solid start, we will be okay, said Bangladesh pace bowling coach Courtney Walsh during their practice session at Somerset County Ground Friday.

“Because of the size of this ground, we might have to re-think some of our attacks, plans and strategies. It is a much smaller ground, so we have to ensure we are more spot-on and consistent, and try to create the pressure,” he added.

The Windies have added experienced players and big-hitters like Chris Gayle and Andre Russell in their squad.

The duo are match-winners and can turn the match around on any given day. 

Walsh informed that the Tigers targeting playing as an unit as they did in the last few matches against the Windies.

“We are looking at their game now. We are coming up with some ideas and plans. Gayle and Russell are two dangerous players we have to try to restrict, and get them out at the same time to have more control of the game. We will be focused on their team itself, because they have very good players in their team as well. I am sure we can perform as a team against West Indies,” Walsh added.

Bangladesh team practiced at Somerset County Ground, starting from 2:00pm, local time. 

It was an optional practice session for the Tigers. 

Shakib al Hasan is currently recovering from left side-strain injury and did not practice. 

Opener Liton Kumar Das and Rubel Hossain were also not seen in the training session.

It was typical English weather in Taunton as there was sudden rain and sunshine engulfed the skies throughout the day.

Prior to the practice session, five Bangladesh players - Mushfiqur Rahim, Mustafizur Rahman, Soumya Sarkar, Saifuddin and Mohammad Mithun - took part in a session with the children and young players of Somerset Community Coaching Clinic for about an hour at the indoor practice facilities.

After warming up and regular fielding drills, batsmen took part in the net sessions near the center wickets.
