India will carry forward momentum from England series against Bangladesh: Kumble

Posted By: PTI

Hyderabad, Feb 7: India will look to build on a highly successful home season when it clashes with Bangladesh, says head coach Anil Kumble even as he emphasised on his side's ability to take 20 wickets.

We 'respect' Bangladesh side: Kumble; 'Pandya can be a good Test all-rounder'

"We would like to look at it as continuation from where we left against England. It's been a good home season so far. We would like to take confidence from that and build on it. We still have few more Test matches after this so, it's important that we take momentum and look at Bangladesh which has done really well against New Zealand in the recent past," Kumble said at a press conference.

India will carry forward momentum from England series against Bangladesh: Kumble

The former captain noted the contribution made by the fast bowlers in India's success in the home season and team's ability to bowl out opposition twice.

"You spoke about spinners dominating against England. But, then fast bowlers' contribution you cannot take that away at all whether it was England or New Zealand. So, the home series has seen the fast bowlers coming in and contributing as well. It's a matter of getting the partnership right whether it is fast bowlers or spinners. At the end of it, this squad certainly has the ability to pick up 20 wickets," Kumble said.

Kumble, India's most successful Test bowler, said they will approach the Bangladesh game session by session.

"I think every game, whether it's a series of three test matches or five test matches, you have to take every session and the Test match as a separate unit and not really look at the series itself. It's very different when you are playing only a one-off Test match. But, we would like to even look at a Test series as a one-off Test match, one at a time rather than look at the whole series," he said.
