After the match, the Tigers skipper said they need to bat, bowl and field better to win the match but they failed to do so. The ace all-rounder said they have failed to bat as per their ability and body language and fielding were not up to the mark. Skipper Shakib said he thinks it is a mental barrier that is not letting the Tigers keep their nerve to finish off a close encounter.
“It will be hard for me to answer,” Shakib said. “I have never batted or bowled in those situations. I think the batsmen or bowlers will describe it better. I think it is a mental block, which we have not been able to overcome till now.” “Throughout the series, we failed in the three departments, which is the reason for this result.”
Shakib answered as he was asked about what went wrong in the series. It is mentionable, the Tigers suffered a heartbreaking defeat to India at the World T20 in 2016 and then again this year with the same opponents in the final of the T20 tri-series in Sri Lanka when Dinesh Karthik smashed a six off the final ball.
Shakib said after Thursday’s loss, he said the batsmen or bowlers can describe it better as he has never batted or bowled in those situations. The loss at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Dehradun saw Bangladesh being whitewashed three-nil by a team that has yet to even play Test cricket.
