Team fails to do well in all three departments: Shakib

DHAKA, June 8, 2018 (BSS) – Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan admitted
that they have failed to do well in all three departments that’s why they
lost the final T20 against Afghanistan.

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.

Chasing a target of 146 set by Afghanistan, Bangladesh needed nine runs
in the final over with two set batsman at the crease.

However, both Mushfiqur Rahim (46) and Mahmudullah (45) lost their
wickets as Bangladesh went on to lose by one run.

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.
