Although Tigers lost the Test match against India by 208 runs, Bangladesh fought well against the number one Test team. However, it could have been a different story had Bangladesh taken the chances they created at Hyderabad.
“We created a lot of opportunities with the bowling. If we had restricted India to 550 or 600, we could have had a chance. It’s quite tough out there in the second innings, India have a lot of options, not only among the spinners but the fast bowlers as well. Hopefully we learn from this and come up with better performance,” said captain Mushfiqur Rahim.
Overall, he felt there were lots of positives to take out of the game, reports abplive.
“I’m really proud of the boys, even the tail-enders showed really good character. Little things are what we need to improve on. Couple of matches coming up in Sri Lanka. Hopefully we capitalise there.”
“We batted more than 100 overs each innings, and Mehedi Hasan batted and bowled well. Taijul (Islam) bowled well. But I think our fielding let us down. If we can compete for five days, we can push the big boys,” he added.
