Pothas heaps praise on ‘phenomenal’ towhid0

Nic Pothas, who was once a batter for South Africa, was recently named as an assistant coach for Bangladesh. Pothas is enthused about the national team’s prospects in the Test format, and he showered admiration on emerging star Towhid Hridoy.

“Based on what you’ve told me, the performance of your team members in the tests has been less than satisfactory. That wave will return at some point. After witnessing their skill both in camp and on the road, there is no reason why we can’t continue to improve… Pothas, who previously served as the head coach of West Indies (2018-2019) and Sri Lanka (2017-2018), spoke with media today during a press conference. He said, “We will ride the wave, but I have to take my time to get to know the players.”

Beginning on June 14, Bangladesh will play host to Afghanistan in a single test match. In 2019, the two countries competed against one another for the final time in a red-ball match. Afghanistan’s spinners had the Bangladesh hitters exposed, resulting in a loss by 224 runs for the hosts in Chattogram.

They utilize a top spin assault, which makes the competition more entertaining. The challenge is in finding a solution to the situation. Pothas emphasized the need of ensuring that adequate countermeasures are in place before their arrival.

After the conclusion of the test match, Bangladesh and Afghanistan will compete in a white-ball series. Batters like Towhid Hridoy, who made his One-Day International debut in March against Ireland, will be eager to continue their impressive play from the previous match. Pothas thinks the 22-year-old is a “phenomenal batsman” and that he has performed above and beyond what was anticipated of him.

“In the first place, he is an outstanding young man. When it comes to his abilities, the sky is the limit for him.

“Not many individuals have come into international cricket and all of a sudden done what he has done. He has become one of the best players in the world.

We anticipate that these up-and-coming cricket players will immediately become some of the best in the world. It is not even somewhat plausible. Towhid is an individual with a great deal of potential as well as a strong desire to gain knowledge. He has a strong commitment to his work. Pothas remarked, “I am excited for what he is capable of doing.”
