This is something we need to seriously put our focus on now because if we had a bag full of top quality pacers then Bangladesh would be easily challenging teams like England, South Africa and Australia but at this moment even though we have improved on our other areas, will still get crushed by them. We may give them a serious challenge in our own grounds now as long as the wickets provide vicious turn for our spinners but still improvements needs to be made especially on Test Cricket. Somebody needs to tell silly BCB to put their focus on their first class structure right now so we can get somewhere for once in Cricket everywhere not just at home. Create pace academies, alter some of your grounds so it provides lots of bounce and make all the grounds that don't have International status to hold matches, green, fast and bouncy so not only it encourages our fast bowlers and get more players having careers as fast bowlers but our batsman too can play dangerous paceman with ease especially short pitched bowling which we seriously struggle to deal with. Just look how both Tamim and Anamul dealt with out pace bowlers in that T20 match after their struggle against them in the other series because both of them including Mahmudullah have just gotten use to them bowling at that pace and before this series even started, they haven't even faced these sort of deliveries for a long time. Its not that they don't have the ability to play these fast bowlers but lack of playing these kind of fast bowlers at a consistent bases otherwise how else did someone like Tamim Iqbal score back to back 100s against the mighty England team in seaming faster conditions against good pace bowlers?
