“Winning this test match is very important. Two years ago, we didn’t play that much cricket, so we wanted to improve.
“I think this is a kind of team performance. We did a good job in all three departments. Our bowlers make good use of water, and the batters do a good job. I said before, for our Legacy, we need to win these test matches.”
He added that Bangladesh focused on the process rather than the result in the game.
“Before playing anywhere, you must have a clear mindset. If you are leaving the subcontinent and you think to yourself that’it will be tough’, it will be very difficult,” Mominul said.
“We didn’t pay too much attention to the results of the test competition, we tried to focus on the process.”
The Bangladesh captain also praised Ebado’s performance, saying that he has performed very well in the past two or three years.
“He is from the Air Force and used to be a volleyball player,” Mominur added. “Our coaching staff has done a lot of work to support him and help him bowling in the right area, which is an incredible spell for him.”
The second test of the series will be held at Hagley Oval in Christchurch from January 9th to 13th.
