Former Australian cricketer and batting coach of Chittagong Kings, Michael Bevan, will be focusing on how to boost the run-rate through singles and doubles as he thinks that would be the key to success in Twenty20 cricket.
Even though he arrived on Saturday night, Bevan did not miss the opportunity to watch his skipper Mahmudullah play at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in a Dhaka Premier League match between Abahani and Gazi Tank Cricketers on Sunday.
‘You have to boost the scoring rate not only by hitting fours and sixes but also by the number of balls that you play for one and twos,’ Bevan told reporters at the SBNS.
‘The first thing is that you have to score a little bit quicker. I think in Twenty20 cricket you need a number of options,’ said Bevan. ‘You need to be flexible about how you are scoring runs. That’s Twenty20 cricket but it also depends on the condition what strokes you need to play,’ he added.
