Post Match Presentation.
Mahmudullah will speak first: “We didn’t have a good partnership… We missed a few chances in the field, that’s why they put big partnerships and got to a big total. We need to look into those areas and come back stronger. [Shoriful a positive?] Shoriful has been bowling really well. The bowlers have been trying really hard.”
Madhevere is the Player of the Match for his knock of 73: “All credit to the boys. Everyone in the change room gave me positive ideas… The wicket was on the slower side, but credit to the Bangladesh bowlers – they bowled well. I’m starting to fancy opening in T20s, and build on that as well… ”
Raza: “Today we managed to tick a lot more boxes than we managed yesterday. [166 was enough?] I would have taken that [score], and with a young squad, it gives us confidence. We back ourselves to defend… Blessing listened to the team plan… and hopefully we all listen to the team plan for the final game!”
