Shakib's episode will affect Bangladesh's performance, coach Domingo acknowledges

NEW DELHI: Bangladeshi coach Russell Sunday awaits the recent ban on Shakib Al Hasan It will affect the team's performance against India in the next T20 and Test series, but it is hopeful that its players will rise to the challenge against formidable hosts.

The accumulation of Bangladesh for the T20 test allocation of three matches and two matches was hit hard when Shakib was suspended for two years, one year suspended, for not reporting three corrupt approaches to a suspected Indian bookmaker, the day before team departure

Before the first Twenty20 International on Sunday, Sunday addressed the issue and was sincere enough to admit that the costumes are still recovering from the shock.

He has been a great player for Bangladesh and is a close friend of many players. Therefore, it has obviously affected some players. He has obviously made a mistake and is paying the price, Domingo said during a press meeting. after a training session at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium here.

There is not much we can control. Obviously it affects team performance, but we must focus on the series and the World Cup (T20), he added.

Since Sunday took over just a month ago, he really did not have the opportunity to work with Shakib, but what the South African understands is that the world number one has great respect in the locker room.

I have not had the opportunity to meet him personally, but the players respect him very much. But as I said, he made a mistake and paid the price.

Domingo admitted that we will greatly miss Shakib's dual skills, which allowed him to get more than 11,000 races and more than 500 wickets in three formats.

Hit in n. ° 3. Often, open bowling, bowling changes for the first time, throw four overs in each game, it is one of our leading hitters. So you must decide if you replace the batter or if you replace the player.

Because you cannot replace both, as it is very difficult to get players who provide both skills. Therefore, you may find yourself short in some department and strengthened in one department, Domingo explained.

You are fully aware of the limited resources of your team as Tamim Iqbal He is also out due to personal commitments and wants to make optimal use of the talent he has at his disposal.

It will depend on the conditions. If the pitch is flat, we will have an extra bowler and, if the pitch works a bit, we may have an additional hitter. It is very difficult to fill Shakib's shoes, but those that are available should do everything possible to obtain those numbers, he said.

Sunday, however, is not sure how the reintegration of Shakib will occur after one year.

A year in terms of cricket is a long time and I have not thought about it. The way Shakib will be integrated into the team has not passed through my mind or the players' minds, he said.
