Team failed to do well in all three departments: Shakib

  • Print
BSS, Dhaka :
Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan admitted that they failed to do well in all three departments that was why they lost the final T20 against Afghanistan.
After the match, the Tigers skipper said they needed to bat, bowl and field better to win the match but they failed to do so.
The ace all-rounder said they 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 could 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.
