Bangladesh vice-captain Nurul Hasan said that he was not concerned about the results, rather he was focusing on the process in the approaching tri-nation series starting in Christchurch on Friday.
Bangladesh will take on Pakistan in the series opener at 8:00am Bangladesh Standard Time and T Sports will telecast the game live.
‘We are not thinking of results but rather working on the process, as the result wouldn’t always be within our grip. I think working hard and keeping the process in place would be the key,’ said Nurul in the absence of captain Shakib Al Hasan during the trophy unveiling ceremony on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman also emphasised the mutual cooperation among the fellow team-mates for a better outcome in the forthcoming contention that would pave their way to battling neck to neck in the ICC T20 World Cup in the middle of this month in Australia.
‘Of course, I would be expecting a good result. Another thing is that I think we can help each other besides our tasks, which would be significant for our team bonding. What I said earlier is that we are aiming to go through a process.’
He also acknowledged that Bangladesh as a team has been undergoing a conducive setting.
‘Our team setting is very good. We have been sent a message from our management not to be worried about the result as we are going through a process that signifies to perform according to the situation. To me, it’s more important to perform as a team than as an individual,’ he said.
Nurul also vowed to perform better in batting, bowling, fielding against Pakistan in the series opener.
‘Of course, Pakistan is a good side. However, if we can perform well in all three departments that would lead us to do something well.’
He also admitted that the conditions of New Zealand would help them vastly in the T20 World Cup in Australia as the atmosphere of the two neighbouring nations is almost the same.
‘If we talk about preparation, we managed to train well for the last two days despite the rain and snowfall. I think it’s a great advantage for us that we are getting the opportunity to play against New Zealand and Pakistan in similar conditions to Australia prior to our departure to the land,’ added Nurul.
