Recording a decent campaign in the recently concluded edition of World Cup, Sri Lanka continued to shine as the Islanders took down Bangladesh in a three-game ODI series with a game to go. This victory allowed Sri Lanka to win their first home ODI series since 2015.
However, Bangladesh’s opening batsman and stand-in skipper Tamim Iqbal sits extremely frustrated as he criticized his team’s performance.
The 30-year old acknowledged the batting failure, but believes that bowling was horrible which didn’t allow them to come back in the game despite having a competitive total on the board. Moreover, the 30-year old player believes that his bunch wasn’t ready to put in extra effort and paid the price.
“Knowing wicket’s condition, it was an important toss to win. Losing four wickets for 50 doesn’t help, but the way we bowled, even 300 would not have been enough. We really can’t go back to the players we don’t have. We weren’t ready to do the hard work as we picked the easy option,” said by left-handed batsman as he shared his frustration on losing the ODI series.
