We already know that Bangladesh will be desperate to win. – Trott

Afghanistan was recently defeated 3-0 by Pakistan in an ODI series in Sri Lanka.

Afghanistan was recently defeated 3-0 by Pakistan in an ODI series played in Sri Lanka.Afghanistan head coach Jonathon Trott said on Friday (September 1) that his charges are well aware that Bangladesh will be desperate to beat them in order to keep their hopes alive in the ongoing Asia Cup, and he urged them to prepare to match their intensity. Bangladesh lost their first Group B game to Sri Lanka by a five-wicket margin, and now face a must-win situation against Afghanistan in Lahore on September 3.

Bangladesh will only arrive in Pakistan tonight, while Afghanistan will be more accustomed to the conditions due to their preparation camp in Pakistan, though Trott cautioned that thinking about these things is dangerous.ka

“We also had hot weather in Sri Lanka, Hambantota and Colombo.” I’m not sure what the weather was like yesterday in Kandy. I didn’t see the temperature, but all of the nations from this region, all of the nations in the Asia Cup, grew up in hot weather, so they’ll be used to it. “I don’t think it’ll be a benefit or a pro for us,” Trott told reporters after their practice session on Friday.

“If we think we’ll benefit from arriving a few days earlier than Bangladesh, I think we’re in trouble.” We have to make sure that whatever weather we deal with, whatever the weather is, we are better than them. So, that’s the mindset, and that’s the path forward,” he said, adding that they must be cautious when facing a desperate Bangladesh side.

“I watched the game and saw some good play from both teams.” So we know it’s going to be difficult. Both of our games will be difficult. But, first and foremost, we know that Bangladesh will be desperate to win, and it’s our job to match their intensity as well as their desire to win,” he said. “So, we all know that if we don’t come with that mindset, matching them, or better mentality and skills, we’re going to be under pressure.”

Trott stated that their recent ODI series defeat against Pakistan in Sri Lanka, a 3-0 loss, has shown them where they need to improve in order to compete with the big names. “I believe the series demonstrated the level at which we must progress.” We must be consistent in our play. We had some good moments, such as when we bowled them out for 200 in the first game. And we were in the game in the second game when we got 300 batting first, and I believe we should have won that game as well.

“But it also showed us that Pakistan is a good side and where the guys want to go.” And demonstrates the type of cricket they must play to reach that level. So, that’s the challenge, and that’s the exposure they’d get from that series. And hopefully, we’ll be able to bring that to the Asia Cup. Last night, we witnessed an exciting game of cricket. Bangladesh is a strong opponent, and we play them first, followed by Sri Lanka. So we’re looking forward to the challenge, having come off a tough series for the guys,” Trott said.

“I believe the Afghan middle-order has a lot of potential and talent.” But it’s all about applying it, as well as knowing the tempo at which you need to bat and assessing the conditions and what’s required at the time. So, I don’t think it’s talent; I think it’s a combination of fundamentals and, previously, playing mentality. I believe that as you advance in your career, your mentality must become stronger and you must be able to handle pressure.

“That is the challenge I issue to my batters.” And it is not only important how they train and think about their practice, but also how they think about themselves. The belief they have in themselves as cricketers. Because all cricketers have is faith in their own abilities. And their own self-assurance. That’s what we’re attempting to instill in the boys. And that’s what I’m hoping to see in two days,” Trott concluded.
