Bangladesh coach Russell Domingo has said in the absence of regular openers Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das, Bangladesh might even field a new opening pair in case there are injury issues with the opening pair.
Soumya Sarkar and Naim Sheikh opened the batting for Bangladesh in Zimbabwe, where the visitors won 2-1 but any emergency might force the team management to a completely new pair, Domingo said during an online press briefing today.
“We are discussing about it. We have Shakib Al Hasan, whom we might use for opening. Mohammad Mithun returned to the side. Even though he’s a middle-order batsman, we might use him to open. If anyone gets injured, we might use them. We have the players to cover for for the situations,” Domingo said, after mentioning that Soumya is carrying a slight niggle from Zimbabwe.
