The team undergoes changes under the new head coach
Bangladesh’s new head coach Russell Domingo changes the team’s training sessions. The team used to have short and intense training sessions. Under the new head coach’s watch, the team will now train longer hours on the field. ‘The more you bat the better’, said Domingo.
Domingo became Bangladesh’s head coach on August 19. Aside from the new training sessions, he also focused on improving the team’s fitness. The new head coach is supported by the team’s bowling and fielding coach as well.
‘I don’t know what you are trying to say and I do not know the training standard of previous coaches of Bangladesh’, said Domingo. ‘We want to maintain the high intensity in the practice sessions and workload that we are expecting from the players. We want to make sure they fit in the storm. And I think there is an area we can improve, the bowler's fitness level’.
Domingo also wants to improve the stamina of the team’s pace bowlers. ‘The best fast bowlers in the world are able to bowl 18-22 overs at the same pace in a day. I am not sure any young fast bowlers are capable of doing that. That work is still in progress but there has been some good progress made in last two weeks’, Domingo added.
