In New York, the toss can decide the fate of the match

The ‘drop in pitch’ at New York’s Nassau County International Stadium has favored fast bowlers from the start. The biggest news is that South Africa, Bangladesh’s opponent on Monday, has won the previous 2 matches in this field.

The Proteas have already beaten Sri Lanka and the Netherlands in Nassau. Aiden Markram’s Proteas won easily by 6 wickets and 4 wickets, beating the Lankans for 77 and the Dutch for 103 runs in both the matches.

One Protea fast bowler each fell with 4 wickets in both the matches. Fast bowler Enrique Norkia took 4 wickets for just 7 runs in the first match against Sri Lanka. And Protea fast bowler Otniel Bartman (4/11) also bowled devastatingly against the Dutch.

Apart from this, other Protea fast bowlers Kagiso Rabada, Marco Jansen are also bowling with gunpowder. India was bowled out for 119 runs in the India-Pakistan match on this ground yesterday. In reply, Pakistan managed to score 113 runs.

Since no team could build a fighting capital by batting first against the Proteas at the Nassau Stadium in New York, the opposite side has fallen, so naturally the Proteas will want to bowl first after winning the toss at the same time on the same field as Bangladesh on Monday.

So it is the sincere wish of all the fans and supporters of Bangladesh that the toss fate be with Tiger captain Nazmul Hossain’s peace. He won the toss. If Mudra doesn’t win the fortunes, the added speed, bounce and swing of New York’s drop-in pitches can wreak havoc on the calm forces.

It has long been known that drop-in pitches are basically lazy and slow pitches; But the behavior of this drop in pitch at Nassau Stadium is very different. A little crazy. A drop-in pitch is a wicket with a slab of clay placed on top of a clay wicket.

This creates a subtle difference between the top layer of the drop in pitch and the original layer. This is why the speed of the wicket decreases. But the speed of the wicket at Nassau Stadium in New York is not low. much more There is a lot of uneven bounce, which is very useful for pace bowlers. So this pitch has now become a favorable field for the pacers.

Statistics have shown that none of those who have batted before have done well in this field. What will Bangladeshi batters do with South Africa on this pitch on Monday?

Already Soumya, Liton Das, Nazmul Hossain Shantara are out of form. Shakib’s bat is not burning like that. Only runs are coming from the bat of Tawhid Hriday and Mahmudullah Riyad. 125 with Sri Lanka is a breath of fresh air. Hriday 40 to 200 strikerates and Riyad didn’t keep one side at the end was difficult to win. It will not be easy to stand in front of the Protea pacers with such a broken, weak and old batting.

So, the first request regarding today’s match will be, may God give the fortune of the toss to the Tigers. Otherwise, it will be very difficult for the Bangladeshi batsmen to stand in front of South Africa’s pace bowling if they have to bat first. Overall batting must be done well. He has no choice.

Liton Das, Tahid Hriday and Riyad scored only 3 runs against Sri Lanka. Today against South Africa it is not enough to look at only these 3 people. The entire batting department has to play well. Besides, if they win the toss, there will be a chance to put South Africa into batting first.


Taskin, Mostafiz and Tanzim Shakib (Shariful may not be playing first) on the Nassau pitch are capable of giving South Africa’s top order a tough test. It would have been great to have Shariful in this match. Bangladesh’s pace bowling lineup of Mostafiz, Taskin and Shariful is not quite world-class but can pose a tough challenge to any team’s batting lineup on a pace-supporting pitch.

Despite the absence of Shariful, the pace bowling of the Tigers is not bad. If they win the toss and send South Africa into bat, there will be good chances for Bangladesh in this match. But the last thing is the same; Batters have to score runs. Small or big; Whatever the target, the batsmen have to score runs. Even if the bowlers keep the opposition within their reach, the batsmen have to fire at the right time to win the match.

Will Shant, Liton, Soumya and Shakib be able to find themselves lost?
