We has some good performances and most importantly it was a good learning about the players and the team. The squad needs to be improved. Hopefully some of these players will be developed to become national players. I think we can definitely improve our fitness and fielding. We need to get some stronger bodies who can ball for long periods of time. We need to get some batsmen who can strong physically and mentally to bat long periods of time. We have to make sure we develop our bodies to be edge all and strong enough, need strong throwing arms at the field. So many aspects are there we need to improve upon." Coach is hopeful that this tour will help the players to improve their skills. "I thought in the tour we had some great individual performances. Shanto (Nazmul Hossain) made a hundred, Saif Uddin also. Young Irfaan also made a hundred. So we did very well there. Tanbir took a 5 wicket haul, so there were good individual performences. We played some good crickets, whether we won or loss that wasn't the point of the tour. The tour was about developing these players in unfamiliar conditions against unfamiliar oppositions to make sure they are improving their skills to be good players in all formats for Bangladesh."
