However, the way Bangladesh won the series is not to the liking of captain Tamim Iqbal at all. Especially in both the matches, the top order has completely failed. Mushfiqur Rahim batted alone in the second match today. If Mushfiqur could not stand, what would have happened?
That’s why at the press conference at the end of the match, captain Tamim called the series a victory, a ‘lucky win‘. According to him, Bangladesh has not played a perfect game yet.
“Luckily we won the series,” he said. Very happy to have won the series. But I think we haven’t played the perfect game yet in this series. Hopefully, we can play the perfect game in the third ODI. ‘
Highlighting the plight of the batsmen, Tamim said, “If you look at today’s match, we lost a lot of wickets in the beginning. At one stage even 200 runs seemed very difficult. Then Mushfiqur played great, Mahmudullah made some contributions. In the end, I will say that we have somehow scored one. Today’s wicket was better than the first match. “
The bowlers bowled brilliantly, said Tamim. That is why the captain did not forget to praise them. “The bowlers were great,” he said. The way Shariful Islam bowled his debut, the way Taskin rushed after the Concussion issue is a great thing. Miraj was brilliant once again, Shakib did well too. I am happy with the bowling department, we have started fielding well in the fielding department. ‘
Some improvement in fielding has been noticed in Tamim’s eyes. “Before the series, I said we need to improve our fielding,” he said. We caught some good catches. However, the catches that we could not take turned the match around. Maybe you don’t need it today, but you may need it tomorrow. If we can take those catches then I will be very happy captain. ‘
