Winds of change in Bangladesh cricket

Earlier, we saw history unfold before our eyes as Bangladesh beat England by 16 runs in the third and final T20I on 14 March, giving them their first clean sweep over the world champions. It was also their first whitewash in a three-match T20I series in 11 years. Liton Das’ 57-ball 73 helped the hosts reach 158 for two before the bowling unit restricted England to 142 for six at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium. One of Bangladesh’s best bowlers, Mustafizur Rahman became the fastest Bangladeshi to take 100 T20I wickets in just 81 matches.

Not just this match, Bangladesh’s fast bowling department displayed a new vigor and attitude throughout the three T20Is. The credit for this change in fast bowlers can be largely given to Bangladesh fast bowling coach Allan Donald. The ‘White Lightning’ emphasized the value of clever bowling, which had worked against England. Donald believes that the bowling unit should be both cohesive and aggressive. He talks about having a pack mentality and overcoming fear.
