Bangladesh spin bowling consultant Daniel Vettori heaped high praise on the Bangladesh spin resources as the Kiwi legend spent some time with the young spinners at the indoor nets of Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka Wednesday.

Young spinners Aminul Islam Biplob, Hasan Murad, Tanvir Islam and Nazmul Islam Apu practiced with Vettori in the nets.  

Aminul has played the shortest format for Bangladesh in recent times. 

Nazmul also played in all three formats for Bangladesh, but is currently out of the national team.

Murad and Tanvir are two promising young spinners. 

Murad was part of the triumphant U-19 World Cup team while Tanvir is a member of the High Performance team. 

“My role in here is to help out not only the international player but also the young developing guys.  And the messages are very similar and the bowlers are very similar and they are very skilled. And that's the pleasing thing. If you look at the likes of Nayeem (Hasan) couple of years ago he was a player of U-19s, it's good to see how quickly he developed and how skillful he is,” said Vettori to the media.

“So I'm pretty lucky that I get to work with such good bowlers. Actually not huge amount to change around, it is just giving them some experience, just giving them some understanding of how they can be a little bit better. Majority of them have good knowledge of how they have to perform.

“They [Hasan and Tanvir] bowled really well. I think bowling in the nets is different than in the game situation. Getting the chance to work with them in here and then see them in the game is the most important thing and that's the thing I enjoyed with the likes of Taijul [Islam], Nayeem and [Mehedi Hasan] Miraz and that they can do some staff here and see if they can implement that on the field. I think for the moment it’s just getting to know them, getting to know their skills and strength,” said the 41-year old. 

Vettori insists spinners can get better as there is always the chance to improve and expressed hope that young spinners like Nayeem and Miraz will enhance their skill and performance in future. 

“There are not many spinners who can do what Nayeem has done. He has done it in such a young age. You know Taijul is pretty old, Miraz is young as well, so I think these guys are really talented spinners and they can always get better,” said the Kiwi great, who has been hired by Bangladesh Cricket Board for 100-day service to help the spinners of Bangladesh.
