Bangladesh chief Mushfiqur Rahim said Thursday his group were moving toward their voyage through South Africa with certainty in the wake of playing admirably as of late.
Rahim said he needed his group to expand on their shape in home matches, including Test prevails upon England and Australia in the previous year.
“Bangladesh has been playing truly well over the most recent few years,” he said.
“The primary target is to keep that power going. When we are playing at home we are truly certain.
“It won’t be simple, however this is our following stage. We need to do well in Africa too. It is an awesome open door for us.”
Rahim conceded that the inaccessibility of all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan for the two Tests against South Africa was a blow.
“Shakib is a unique player and nobody can supplant him,” he said.
He recognized that addressing the difficulty of South Africa’s quick bowlers in neighborhood conditions would be critical.
“In any case, players like Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman and Mominul Haque have enhanced a ton as people and ideally they will assume their liability to the center.”
Rahim said he expected great exhibitions from his bowlers;
