Regarding his tactics he said, "What I have observed is bowling at the right spot is advantageous here. I must try to bowl maintaining the line and the length".

Shoriful is still uncertain for the playing eleven of St. Lucia Test. Mustafiz, who had been in the squad soon after IPL, can be rested to place in the final squad. If Bangladesh think tank want to set the playing eleven with four quick, they will have to rest Mehidy Miraz which will be a destructive decision for them.
