BAN vs AFG: Bangladesh coach Russell Domingo disappointed with team for dropping nine catches in five games

BAN vs AFG: Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo was not satisfied after his team dropped 3 simple chances in the second T20I against Afghanistan.

On Saturday at Shere Bangla National Stadium in Bangladesh, Nasum Ahmed, Mohammad Naim, and Afif Hossain continued the trend of dropping catches for Bangladesh, dropping the catches of Hazaratullah Zazai and Usman Ghani, who made the crucial partnership for Afghanistan.

“Dropping nine catches in five games is unheard of; it is unbelievable when you think about it. If we knew what [the problem] was, we probably wouldn’t be doing it. Whether it is concentration, confidence or dealing with pressure, I am not 100% sure,” said Domingo as stated by ESPNcricinfo.

“We just have to make sure we try to improve. We make too many mistakes in the field that have cost us. It cost us in the World Cup, here, Test matches. Just too many dropped catches. You can do all the drills in practice but the players have to catch the balls in the games. That is the bottom line,” he added.

In the early match, both teams struggled to hit spinners, and Domingo discusses the ground at Shere Bangla National Stadium.

“I don’t think the pitches were easy to bat on today, it wasn’t a 115 pitch, but it wasn’t also a 160 pitch. If we got 135 we were in the game. At 99 for 4 with four overs to go, we were looking at 135. There are obviously some areas of concern in batting, but it wasn’t an easy wicket to bat on today. Both their openers could have been out in the first two overs. The ball spins, grips, one bounce and one stays low. We know that it is tough to bat in Mirpur,” said Domingo.

On Saturday, Afghanistan defeated Bangladesh by 8 wickets to tie the series at 1-1 at Shere Bangla National Stadium in Bangladesh. It was a two-match Twenty20 International series.
