Afghanistan humiliates Bangladesh, board lashes out


Bangladesh Cricket Board President, Nazmul Hasan expressed severe displeasure at the team's performance in the one-off test match against Afghanistan and called them out for the lack of application.

Afghanistan, playing just their third test match showed excellent performance both with the bat and the bowl and outclassed Bangladesh, a much-experienced side in all the departments. 

Questioning the team selection of the team, Hasan questioned the need of going with an all spin attack and the absense of even a single pacer. 

"It is tough to say what the problem is without having any conversation with them. Where are the pacers? We played in a sporting wicket against them. Why a sudden change? Who made this planning, I need to know. If I talk with them now than it will affect the game. So I am waiting. They definitely had a plan but there were errors," he added expressing displeasure at some selection decisions. 

Hasan also claimed that the Bangladeshis were extremely callous and overconfident in the approach and that's where they lost the game. 

Praising Afghanistan for their application and skills on the field, Hasan congratulated the team on the historic victory and added that Bangladesh has a lot of introspection to do if they have to come out of this loss.

Meanwhile, Afghanistan skipper Rahid Khan who took 11 wickets in the match and guided the Afghans to the victory dedicated the win to former skipper Mohammad Nabi. The 34-year-old announced retirement from Test cricket and will continue playing the other formats.
