Walsh happy with work in progress
And so far, Walsh has been impressed with the young Bangladesh bowlers, who have reacted perfectly to his vision. With the exception of Bangladesh limited-over captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza, the national pace bowling pool pretty much comprises the likes of Mustafizur Rahman, Shafiul Islam, Taskin Ahmed, Rubel Hossain and Kamrul Islam Rabbi. And Walsh has liked what he's seen so far. “I was impressed (in New Zealand). They (pacers) are a work in progress. This (India tour) is another challenge. The experience that they gained there (in New Zealand) will help them here. They’ve been pretty hard here as well (in the two-day warm-up game). We are trying to strike the right balance and get them match ready,” Walsh told the media in Hyderabad's Gymkhana Ground Monday. “The one problem is inexperience. They haven’t played a lot of Tests between them. The board is trying to give them more exposure. It is a step in the right direction. It will be better for the team to play more outside home,” he said. Among the quintet of pacemen, Shafiul is the most experienced in the longest version of the game, with nine Test matches under his belt. However, with Shafiul just recovering from a hamstring injury, Kamul is likely to be seen as the strike bowler in the one-off Test against host India, starting this Thursday at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Despite the inexperience, Walsh said, “They are very impressive, even those not here like Rubel and Mustafiz. They were prepared to put in the work in New Zealand. They have gone back to the BCL (Bangladesh Cricket League) to get match confidence. Guys who are here are prepared to put in all the work, all the time. “I have been trying to get them to work as hard as they can, think about the game and situation. They have been doing it. I am just happy with the progress and how receptive they are to take advice and try things.” Walsh added that it will be a challenge for his charges to extract help from the wicket, given its history of assisting the spinners. “It is going to be challenging for young fast bowlers. Depending on what kind of track we get to bowl on, the adjustments will be made. I think this is good exposure and experience for them,” said Walsh.
