Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo said right-handed batter Anamul Haque Bijoy needs to wait more before making a comeback to the ODI side.
Anamul played one Test and three ODIs during Bangladesh’s ongoing tour of the West Indies but failed to impress.
The right-handed batter scored more than 1100 runs in the last edition of the Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League, the most prestigious 50-over event, in Bangladesh which helped him to make a comeback to the national team after a long gap.
“It’s tricky (to not play Anamul),” Domingo said. “He has done really well. But we need to have a left-hander in the side against the West Indies.”
After the second victory in the ODI series, Bangladesh captain Tamim Iqbal said that they are willing to test their bench strength in the last match, but the opinion of the head coach expressed the other idea.
Bangladesh won the series with victories in the first two matches. They now got a great chance to clean sweep the hosts.
Along with Anamul, Taijul Islam and Ebadot Hossain are the other players who are yet to feature in an ODI in this series. And the hope is really slim for them to get a chance in the final match which is set to take place Saturday at Providence Stadium, Guyana.
Although Bangladesh did well in the ODI series, they have lost all the Tests and T2oIs in this series ahead of the ODIs.
