Bangladesh batting coach says they were ‘too aggressive early on’ in their chase of 129

Bangladesh had been skittled for just 76 in the third T20I

Bangladesh’s batting coach Ashwell Prince found the batters to be “too aggressive” when chasing New Zealand’s 129 target in the third T20I in Dhaka. He said that they could have chased down the total had they been a bit more circumspect, rather than going all guns blazing to get bowled out for 76 in 19.4 overs.

“I think we could have been a little bit more composed in our run-chase,” Prince said. “We had a beautiful start. The openers [Mohammad] Naim and Liton [Das] hit about five boundaries, getting us to 20-odd in two overs. We were ahead of the run rate at that stage. But we lost too many wickets too quickly in the next three-four overs.

“Possibly we were being too aggressive early on. I don’t think the pitch changed much. I think 129 was a competitive target, which we would have reached if we were a little bit calmer in the run-chase.”
