As team Bangladesh moves ahead, looking forward to new challenges in the competition, their batting coach David Hemp does not seem to overlook the fact that his team is not delivering well in the batting area.

David Hemp warns team Bangladesh

Bangladesh’s batting coach David Hemp has made it clear that he does not want the team to be short of 15-20 runs like they did back in the Group stage. Team Bangladesh had scored low, but that could also be blamed on the low scoring pitches.

“We have seen that the wickets in this competition so far have not been conducive to 200 totals and we need to be smart enough making those assessments of surface and conditions and later adjusting and adapting to those conditions, to give ourselves the best opportunity batting first. It will ensure that the bowlers have something to defend.” David said.

“And if you are chasing then obviously you got to chase what you got to chase and that’s a different conversation and you have to play according to the situation. But when we bat first, we need to make sure we are not 15 or 20 runs short because we have not been able to make the right assessment,” he added.

“I think if you look at a couple of our innings, if we scored 15 to 20 more runs we would have won the game. We won some really tight games with low scores but even the Holland [Netherlands] game we got one sixty (from Shakib) and we were in a position to get 180. Again it’s about making good decisions and that’s the challenge.” Hemp concluded.

What goes on in the Bangladesh dressing room

In the middle of the big ICC tournament, it is important for players to be motivated and confident while also being strategic in their approach towards the game. Knowing the conditions, their strengths and weaknesses and what they could improve on, is important.

David Hemp has revealed what the Bangladesh team usually talks about in their dressing room. He has admitted that he’s the speaker in most of these sessions.

“I think we just need to make better adjustments to the surface that we are playing on. Look at the four games we played so far, two were reasonable surfaces and two were challenging,” Hemp said.

“A big part of batting is adjusting to the conditions you are playing in and then it becomes a matter of making good decisions based on that. So that’s the one point we have talked about. We are making sure that we are ready for the surface, how we gonna play on that and what we gonna feel is enough for this surface and what is going to be an effective way of scoring… that’s what we are talking about.”

Bangladesh will face off against Australia on 21 June 2024.
