Women’s World Cup: Need to Work on Our Strike Rotation

Bangladesh captain Nigar Sultana on Friday rued the shortage of batting partnerships from her crew of their slender four-run loss to the West Indies at Bay Oval. After being spectacular in proscribing West Indies to 140, Bangladesh had 4 partnerships equal or greater than 25.

But none have been large enough to take them to their second successive win within the match. In phrases of particular person efficiency, not one of the batters might make greater than 25, the very best rating in Bangladesh’s chase made by Sultana and an unbeaten Nahida Akter.

“We have seen the final two matches right here. So, we noticed that the spinners are dominating right here and we have been simply planning on doing the identical factor. The bowlers did very well at this time to maintain the West Indies batters in an honest whole, which is unbelievable. If we might construct up the partnerships in batting, it might have been completely different,” said Sultana in the post-match virtual press conference.

Sultana further pointed out consuming a lot of dot balls and losing wickets in a cluster (losing three wickets on 60 runs and two wickets on 85 runs) as other factors which played a hand in Bangladesh’s loss. “I know the openers gave us the best start from the last three matches. Shamima (Sultana) fell down today but the back-to-back wickets, it cost us very much and I think if we could build up two partnerships, at least 20-run partnerships, the result might have been different.”

“We have to work on our strike rotation. We took numerous balls for begin off the innings and even in the course of the overs once we wanted to take singles or rotating strike, it wasn’t there.”

Sultana also believed that letting West Indies score 70 runs in the last 15 overs proved costly for Bangladesh. “I guess in a cricket match that somehow maybe teams give up and sometimes they build a partnership. It happened, but I think from the beginning we put up pressure on them. They put up a very good score in the last 15 overs. We need to work on that. I guess even though they didn’t get any chance actually, but still we bowled very few bad balls.”

Bangladesh’s subsequent match within the World Cup can be towards India on Tuesday at Seddon Park in Hamilton.
