Bangladesh batting coach additionally needs his aspect to “take some dangers” throughout run chases
Forty of Mithun’s runs got here from the on aspect, which Lewis defined was was a pure consequence of the type of pitches accessible in New Zealand. “I feel the large side of batting abroad for Bangladeshi batsmen is coping with high quality seam bowling with the brand new ball and a little bit bit extra bounce,” he stated. “Tamim [Iqbal] has extra expertise than a lot of the guys. He makes use of his position to create basis for the second half of the innings.
“Mithun performed an distinctive innings in Christchurch. He was making an attempt to get himself nearer to the road of the ball. He was making an attempt not to take a look at the off aspect a lot by protecting leg aspect as an possibility. You are able to do it the place the ball bounces above the stumps a bit greater than [in] Dhaka or Chattogram.”
Lewis, who joined the Bangladesh aspect earlier this 12 months to work throughout the house collection in opposition to West Indies and the New Zealand tour, stated that the Bangladesh batsmen might need to bat at an excellent larger tempo if they’re chasing an enormous whole within the third ODI in Wellington on Saturday. But when they bat first, he would need them to proceed with their plan in Christchurch, which was about conserving wickets firstly and going after the bowling within the again finish of the innings.
“If we bat first, we’ve got to be cautious of what the brand new ball would possibly do,” he stated. “They’ve Trent Boult, and if [Tim] Southee comes into the aspect, they’re high quality performers. We’ve to make sure they do not do us an excessive amount of injury early on. If we’re chasing a excessive rating, we’ve got to benefit from the powerplay – take some dangers, play some pictures.”
However with regards to batting first, Lewis believes Bangladesh could make up for a gradual begin.
“I feel any run we do not get within the first ten overs, we imagine we are able to make it up within the latter interval so long as our established batsmen usually are not making an attempt to rebuild the innings an excessive amount of,” he stated. “If we’re none or one down for 30-40 runs within the first ten overs, we really feel it is okay. In Dunedin, we had been two or three down [early] which allowed New Zealand to manage the innings. However after we had a partnership between Tamim and Soumya [Sarkar, in the second ODI], it allowed Mithun to kick on and get us to a good rating.”

The floor in Christchurch was for a way more even contest. The fellows put into follow what they’d been doing throughout the preparation interval. It wasn’t adequate as a result of we did not get the consequence we’re after, however a minimum of there was a step in the proper route.”
