Cricket News: Bangladesh fast bowler Ebadot Hossain made significant improvements on and off the field in the first Test against New Zealand, helping the visitors to a historic 8-wicket triumph and their first-ever Test victory over the Kiwis. In the second innings, Ebadot got six wickets as New Zealand were knocked out for 169 runs, allowing Bangladesh to easily chase down a small 40-run goal. Then, during the post-match presentation, the fast bowler gave one of the most thrilling interviews, which could inspire the next generation of Bangladesh players.
Ebadot stated that the team had self-confidence and had “set a goal” of defeating New Zealand on their home turf.
“Our brothers and teams haven’t won a game in New Zealand in the last 21 years. This time, we established a target for ourselves. ‘We have to beat New Zealand on their own turf, and we can do it,’ we said, raising our hand. They are Test champions, and if we can defeat them, it will motivate the future generation “In his post-match address, Ebadot remarked.
The pacer also stated that the conditions in Bangladesh were not as favourable for fast bowlers, and that patience was the key to his success.
“I’ve been working with Ottis Gibson for the past two years. At home, the conditions are always flat. In away conditions, we’re still learning how to bowl and reverse. I’m attempting to hit the stumps at their highest point. For success to come, I had to be a little patient “he stated
Every dismissal is greeted with a salute, which Ebadot attributes to his military history.
“I am a Bangladesh Air Force soldier, so I know how to salute. From volleyball to cricket, it was a long storey. I adore playing cricket for Bangladesh and the Bangladesh Air Force “The bowler stated.
