After winning the match, Mortaza said,
“The crowd has been really superb for us and the atmosphere has been amazing. He (Shakib) has been outstanding for us in the tournament; he keeps scoring runs in every game and also comes on to bowl whenever needed. That partnership between Mushy and Shakib was important, as the track wasn’t easy to bat on. Tamim batted well too and then the finish from Mahmudullah and Mosaddek was also crucial. Obviously, that’s a call for the physio to make (on Mahmudullah’s calf injury), but there’s a week left and I think he should be fine. If we play well, we should be able to do well (against India and Pakistan).”
Bangladesh will face India in their next world cup 2019 game on July 2.
