Greenidge: Practise hard, practise well

Bangladesh won the ICC Trophy under Gordon Greenidge’s stewardship in 1997 and qualified for the 1999 World Cup

Legendary West Indies opener and former Tigers head coach Gordon Greenidge paid a visit to the Bangladesh cricketers at the Mirpur Academy ground in Dhaka Wednesday.

A total of 31 cricketers were called up to the fitness and training camp ahead of the Afghanistan series and West Indies tour. Greenidge came to the Tigers’ training session in the afternoon. All-rounder Mahmudullah greeted him with flowers and later, ODI captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza presented him a Bangladesh jersey. Wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim then gave a cap to the Windies great with the players’ autographs.

During his visit, Greenidge talked to the players and shared some suggestions. Later, he visited the Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, the President’s Box and other facilities.

 “I can wish you good luck wherever you go play, maybe it’s in the West Indies or in India. The best advice I can give you is that, be sure that you are focused and give concentration on your game. You will be benefitted by it,” Greenidge told the Bangladesh players during his visit. 

“Don’t try to be too aggressive at the beginning and don’t try to be a hero. You can get plenty of time to bat and score runs, which can give your team a good position. A good start for your team is always important. Good luck to you. Practise hard, practise well. I hope you will bring more and more success to Bangladesh,” he said.

Greenidge came to Bangladesh Sunday due to personal reason. The BCB later honoured him with a grand reception at a city hotel Monday. 

Bangladesh won the ICC Trophy under Greenidge’s stewardship in 1997 and qualified for the 1999 World Cup. Under Greenidge, the Tigers later defeated Pakistan in the 1999 World Cup.
