We have to accept we played poorly: Sarkar

  • Print


Agency :
After Bangladesh suffered a 3-0 ODI clean-sweep at the hands of Sri Lanka on Wednesday, Bangladesh batsman Soumya Sarkar said that there was no excuse for the way his team played and had to accept that they were under-par.
"We are all disappointed because we lost the series 3-0," Sarkar said after Bangladesh suffered a 122-run loss in Colombo. "When we lost the first two we all were thinking about coming back into the third match strongly. But today we lost once again. So, we are all upset. We played poorly, we have to accept that.
"The more important thing is that Sri Lanka have won a series after four years, home conditions or anywhere because they played well. If we could have played our best or give our best performance in all three departments, then the scenario would have been a lot better than this.
"We are trying to overcome those mistakes through practice. I didn't score runs in the first two matches, those who also didn't score were trying really hard. In practice, even in the room due to security and all the time we were talking of how to make a comeback.
"Maybe all were too worried. Sometimes results don't come because of too much tension. What happens when we fail is that we think too much and in the process fail to take a decision like whether we should play our normal game or should we abandon it and go into a shell and all those things."
