Mahmudullah disappointed with result
Mahmudullah stands on the ground during the presentation program after end of the second and final Test cricket match on the third day on Saturday.
Bangladesh stand in captain Mahmudullah said he is very mush disappointed for their massive 215 runs defeat that helped Sri Lanka to clinch the Test series.
He was speaking at a post-match session at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium at Mirpur.
The Bangladesh skipper said,"Feeling really disappointed because we knew the pitch would get us a result. In this sort of a wicket you should cash in on the first innings. Their bowlers did the job really well, keeping the pressure on us every time we came out."
He said, "Our bowlers [only] did well in patches. One positive was the intent from Mominul. He played spinners on the front foot as well as the back."
Sri Lankan skipper Dinesh Chandimal said, "This was a really good series. The first game was a nightmare for the bowlers and this one was a nightmare for the batters. The guys executed our game plans really well out in the middle. After the first game we thought the second pitch might be a turning
wicket. We were surprised, because we have all the experienced spinners."
"Credit goes to Roshen Silva who had an outstanding series-- even Kusal Mendis and Dhananjaya-- and also all the bowlers, he added."
