Bangladesh have made it to the final of the T20I series at home, against Zimbabwe and Afghanistan. But Head Coach Russell Domingo feels that they haven't played the perfect game in the tournament despite reaching the final. In the final hosts Bangladesh will take on Afghanistan on Tuesday.

"We haven't played the perfect game yet. We have been good in certain areas and average in certain areas. We are still trying to find the perfect game."

"We haven't got to the last five or six overs with only two or three wickets down. We have lost too many wickets in the first ten overs. We have to get to the 15th over with two wickets down, maybe, so that we have a platform for the last five overs."

He expects his top-order to come good in the finals and pose a stiff fight against the formidable Afghanistan side. However, he felt that his side's pace bowlers have done well in the tournament. Mohammad Saifuddin is the joint highest wicket-taker with 7 wickets, while Shafiul Islam has picked up four wickets.

"I think we are going to add a fourth seamer to our 12 and make a decision tomorrow, looking at the wicket. It is an area we can exploit if there's more pace and bounce. My thinking is where we are going to play the World Cup in a year's time. We are playing in Australia, and I can't see us playing one or two seamers there. We have to play at least three or four fast bowlers in Australia.

Winning now is important but we also have to think of what is in the best interest of the team going forward. It is a fine line to balance it. It is always good to have a fast-bowling attack, but I understand the culture and the fact that the strength of the team lies in spin bowlers. I am trying to find the balance as a coach."
