Post Match Presentation.
Raza: Every game we’ve showed a lot of improvement. 193 was well defendable on that track. Until the 18th over started, I was pretty confident we’ll win the game. There was no point where I didn’t think we would win, but unfortunately, the last two overs didn’t go to plan. To see the youngsters standing up and making valuable contributions gives us heart and is a step in the right direction. In my opinion, we’ve already started working on things, but 40 or 50 extras in two games will make it hard to beat anyone. We can go a long way if we work on that.
Soumya Sarkar is the Player of the Match and the Player of the Series.
Shovik: “Soumya- we were looking for a big over in the powerplay however it came in the end. Mahmudullah and I were talking about how crucial it is for a partnership. Really happy to contribute. Your welcome Shresth” — Thanks Shovik!
Mahmudullah: The boys showed their character, everybody contributed. In the end, Shamim played a crucial knock, and all in all it was a good show by the batting unit. When you chase these big totals, you need partnerships to keep the score ticking over, and at least a boundary every over. I think Soumya is a useful all-rounder, when I gave him the ball he got me two wickets and when we the team needed him to stand up with the bat, he did it. (laughing) Looking forward to the next bubble and the next series.
