After rueing the missed opportunities in Dhaka, Australia returned with no flaws and levelled the series. Courtney Walsh, Bangladesh s bowling coach, heaped praises on David Warner and Nathan Lyon who were the catalysts in Australia success. Walsh was equally pleased with Mustafizur Rahman s comeback. With the next assignment against South Africa, Walsh feels the Bangladesh seamers have task on hand. Bangladesh, who have achieved tremendous success in Test cricket in the recent times, would hope to continue the momentum and shock the Proteas as well. South Africa conditions are way different than the spin-friendly conditions of Bangladesh.

Walsh started off praising Australia s consistency and the architects of the side s success in the final Test, We played against them well in here [Dhaka] and in a close Test we came as winners. We went to Chittagong with our confidence high but I think the boys will be very disappointed in our performances. I think Australia have played really well and we know where it went wrong. You have to give them credit, Nathan Lyon bowled extremely well and David Warner hit back-to-back Test hundreds. I think it was the difference between the two teams as they were little bit consistent than us.

Although Bangladesh lost the final clash, Walsh and co. would be happy on Mustafizur finding his lost mojo, Mustafiz bowled well and he showed the aggression and showed good control. To get out David Warner twice in the same Test is no mean feat as he is a class player and obviously they play for the same team in the IPL. I am happy with the aggression he showed and control and the serious look in his face and as I said he is a very talented player, he is a special talent and that will give Bangladesh an extra edge that they need to do well.

With South Africa next in the plate, Walsh wants his seamers to rise to the occasion, The seamers got to be more on the mark. So the work has to be done and that’s why I came up early to work with the bowlers and am trying hard to get everybody in shape. It’s going to be a testing and challenging time for us. It’s going to be a different surface and different testing conditions. We have improved tremendously. The experience that we have learnt will help as well in different conditions in South Africa.
