Rovman Powell was complimentary of the innings that Tamim Iqbal played in his first match after returning from injury scoring 107 from just 73 balls

Stand-in captain of the Windies for the ODI series, Rovman Powell had mixed feelings about his team’s performance after another defeat in the 50-over practice match at the BKSP 3 ground in Savar Thursday. 

They batted well to score 331/8, but could not defend such a big total with BCB XI scoring 314/6 in 41 overs before bad light stopped play and the host won by 51 runs via the D/L method.

“I think it was a good game. Unfortunately, we didn’t come up and was disappointed but we had a lot of positives to take before the first game,” said the right-handed batsman.

Powell was complimentary of the innings that Tamim Iqbal played in his first match after returning from injury scoring 107 from just 73 balls.

“I think it was a pretty good innings. Getting hundred at any time and any wicket is really good. It was a pretty good innings from my stand point,” Powell said.

The 25-year old was happy with the wicket as it was a good one to bat on, but he is expecting the wickets to be more spin-friendly during the ODI series, which begins Sunday. 

“Yes, the pitch was good. It’s a good one-day wicket. Bangladesh’s strength is spin but they put in a pretty good wicket just before the first game that’s something to think about. Just like the Test games, we believe that the pitch will benefit spinners here,” Powell concluded.
