Post Match Presentation.
Brendan Taylor, who gets a memento for his 200th ODI: Not a day I wanted for my 200th. It’s been a long road with lots of ups and downs. That’s the difference between the two sides, the top-order batsmen are quite skilled and we couldn’t match them even though the young guys are trying hard. The guys have done a lot of work, think they need to be a bit mentally stronger and the momentum will shift. A quick turnaround, so it’s not about getting to the nets tomorrow but about switching off.
Liton Das, the Player of the Match: I am really happy. Initially, the pitch helped the bowlers but I managed well in the first 15-20 overs. After that, the wicket was good to bat on. Mahmudullah gave me good support and that was really helpful. I am fine now.
Tamim Iqbal: I thought Zimbabwe bowled exceptionally well in the first 15 overs but the way Liton and Mahmudullah batting and then Afif was really good. And they pulled us out from the difficulty. I thought we bowled well, I wasn’t thinking too much about the surface. We bowled to a plan, Shakib got five. If you don’t bowl to your plan, the wicket isn’t going to help you. Miraz also batted well because we had lost two quick wickets and would have finished with 20-30 runs fewer.
