The Indian team beat Bangladesh with a bang to grab the top spot in the T20 World Cup Group 2 table. The Indian team managed to defeat the Bangladesh team under the Duckworth-Lewis rule. Shakib Al Hasan said it happens every time. He also reacted to the team batting.
Shakib Al Hasan said every time we play against India it has been history. We are almost on the winning side but we cannot cross the line. Both teams enjoyed it, it was a great game and that’s what we wanted. In the end, someone has to win and someone has to lose.
Regarding Liton Das’ stick, Shakib said he was our best batsman. The way he hit on the power play, we had a lot of momentum and thought we could chase that score here in short bounds. If you look at India’s top four, they are extremely dangerous. Our plan was to get these 4 out so we asked Taskin to bowl. Unfortunately he didn’t take any wickets but he was very economical. We are very relaxed and don’t talk much about cricket in this World Cup. We still have one game to play and we want to focus on that.
