London: Bangladesh coach Jamie Siddons insists that his side can one day develop to challenge world's top cricketing nations despite Bangladesh's crushing defeat to England in the Test series.
The Tigers suffered a 2-0 series defeat after being dismissed for 123 to hand over the second Test at Old Trafford by an innings and 80 runs. Bangladesh lost all 10 of their wickets inside a session twice in the match and their Test record now reads 59 defeats in 68 matches.
He believes the team has made improvements and those two collapses shouldn't devaluate the improvements made by his team, especially the free-flowing play of Tamim Iqbal, who hit century in the first innings.
"When conditions are good and not doing too much we are competitive with any team in the world and can take them to five days. But we haven't got enough match-winners to win the games yet," as according to cricketnext reports
"We've got a couple of players who are standing up but others aren't and we need consistency.
"I've had two years of developing cricketers I didn't think were ready and now I've got three or four and a couple getting closer." he added.
Bangladesh will be now travel to Sri Lanka and compete for the Asia Cup before returning to England for a three-match one-day series next month.
