Bangladesh won six consecutive one-day international series since November 2014 before England ended their brilliant run with a 2-1 win in the three-match series this week. But they have not played a Test since facing South Africa in July last year when only three days of play was possible due to rain. The long break from five-day cricket matches prompted the Bangladesh coach to send a warning message to the nation's cricket-mad fans ahead of the two-Test series. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/england-in-bangladesh-2016-200404/live-scores/bangladesh-vs-england-1st-test-match-181595-summary.html" target="_blank"><strong>Full Cricket Scorecard, Bangladesh vs England, 1st Test, Mirpur</strong></a> <p></p> <p></p>"You can t have plans if you don t have ammunition. You can manage what you have, and that's what we are thinking," Hathurusinghe told reporters in Chittagong, which will host the first Test from October 20-24. "We will keep developing a strategy in the long-term. Don t expect us to do miracles straight away," he said. <strong>READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/englands-tour-match-in-bangladesh-first-day-cancelled-due-to-unplayable-pitch-535442" target="_blank">England s tour match in Bangladesh: First day cancelled due to unplayable pitch </a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>"If we happen to win the game, well and good. We are on the way. It will give us a lot of confidence. I am not too worried about what I don't have. I am trying to maximise what we have. Hathurusinghe lamented the absence of competitive domestic first-class tournaments, which denied Bangladesh players an opportunity to develop.Bangladesh has two first-class championships the National Cricket League and franchise-based Bangladesh Cricket League but neither of them has. <strong></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Bangladesh has two first-class championships -- the National Cricket League and franchise-based Bangladesh Cricket League -- but neither of them has regular schedule and often the matches are held in under-prepared grounds. "I can t try players at the international level, which is the unfortunate thing in Bangladesh cricket that we are facing," said Hathurusinghe. <p></p> <p></p>"We have had a lot of injuries and players lose form because we haven't played for a long time. We don t know where the fast bowlers are at this stage. It is a matter of just trusting the players that we have in our midst and being patient," he said. <p></p> <p></p>Bangladesh won just seven of their 93 Tests with five of their wins coming against fellow strugglers Zimbabwe. Their second Test against England will begin in Dhaka on October 28.
