Post Match Presentation.
Brendan Taylor, who led Zimbabwe’s batting efforts in both innings, will speak first: “You’ve got to seize those important moments, and we didn’t do that. I got out at the wrong times, left some runs out there. Credit to Kaitano, on debut. It was down to being in good positions and throwing that away.”
Mahmudullah, in his last Test, is the Player of the Match for his 150* in a rescue act: “[I] always like to be a team man. Fortunately, we have won this game and really happy to see the smiles on our team’s faces. Liton batted really well. It was pleasing to see his batting. Me and Taskin were having good fun at the crease, though he was at times a bit inpatient! We need to handle the pressure of the crunch moments, and I just tried to stick to my basics and score when the chance came.”
Mominul Haque, the winning captain has this to say: “[Overseas win] Whether home or away, a win is always a proud thing for me. When juniors contribute, it really looks good. When we were in trouble, partnership between Riyad bhai and Taskin was crucial. [On Mehidy] It was a flat wicket, so it’s difficult to get wickets. It was a special performance for his nine wickets. Even Shakib and Taskin got four wickets, and it was a team effort.”
