The top order looks old even in 'positive' batting

Bangladesh saw the third opening pair today in 4 matches against Australia. Murshida Khatun was joined by Dilara Akhtar in the T20 today, who was dismissed on the first ball of the match. Sobhana Mostario, who opened in the first two ODIs along with Farzana Haque, returns soon. Dilara has been brought in after Farzana has been dropped in T20, but the picture has not changed.

In response to a question in the press conference about what is the problem with the top order, Tillakaratne said, 'Yes, quite disappointed with the batting. But recovery today was very good. There are some positives. I am especially happy with the batting of Jyoti (Niger) and Fahima (Khatun). The way they played together. Calculated and took some risks at the right moment.'

The picture of the match emerges in the next words spoken by the coach of Bangladesh, 'There are some positive aspects. But they are not good enough. There is a lot of room for improvement. We are working on them.'

Bangladesh, however, have to regret, 'I still think, I have scored 15-20 runs less. Apart from that, I am happy with the way I batted. Especially the way Jyoti played. He has had a bit of a bad time in the last 3 ODIs. And a few players showed good intent. All in all, the batting was good. Australia's batting lineup is quite good. There is learning from them.'

Times are not going well for the batters, Tillakaratne admits, 'We are having a bit of a bad time. Sometimes it takes time to get over it. This is a different version, the wicket was also much better for batting. I could have shown a little more intent in the first 6 overs. But I think the innings repair work was pretty good. After the second wicket, I scored 50-60 runs. It was pretty good. Yes, we need to improve in some areas. I hope I can do it in the future.'

The former Sri Lankan batsman also thinks that they should be done quickly with T20 World Cup ahead, 'T20 World Cup is coming, we have to discuss some things soon. We should sit together and see how to improve quickly.'
