The performance of the Bangladesh National Cricket Team is brilliant in recent time while the performance of the 'A' team is the other side of the coin. Last month 'A' team lost series in India and this month they lost three matches against village and academy club of South Africa.
Observing the performance of the 'A' team the chief selector of BCB Faruk Ahmed said failure of 'A' team is always disappointing.
Talking to the media on Wednesday he said, "It is always disappointing if 'A' team play poor. It is harder to play abroad than home. It is not as easy as Bangladesh to play in South Africa. But it is a different matter if you do not utilise the opportunity. We will talk to the manager about the performance of 'A' team."
Mainly Bangladesh 'A' lost the matches for the batting failure which increased the anxiety of chief selector.
He said, "The main strength of the 'A' team is batting. It is natural to be disappointed if they bat poor. If batters do not perform well naturally the anxiety increased."
Faruk also mentioned they have some motives to from the 'A' team. They included those players who have the possibility to play for the national team.
"I believe that, players whom we include in the team there is an special motive behind their inclusion. Now if players do not utilise the opportunity it is matter of sorrow. In India tour we picked some players who have the possibility to play Test. We took them so that they can play the longer version well," he added.
There is allegation that Bangladesh do not play well in abroad. But Faruk thinks that is not correct and Bangladesh need time to do better everywhere.
He said, "It is not correct that Bangladesh do not play well in abroad. Some years ago India also failed to play well in overseas but now they are doing well. You have to give time to Bangladesh as well."
