After recording a memorable T20I victory in Delhi, Bangladesh’s progress was halted in the second game of the three-match T20I series against India.
Winning the toss, India invited Bangladesh to bat first on a true batting wicket. The plan worked as the hosts restricted the tourists to a manageable total of 153 runs, which was later gunned down as a result of Rohit Sharma’s belligerence.
The defeat, obviously, didn’t go down well with Bangladesh’s skipper Mahmudullah because he wanted a victory to seal the series in Rajkot.
While the wicket didn’t have any demons, the Tigers had a questionable approach with which they didn’t get the total they needed to down a power-packed batting line-up of India.
Sharing his views after the game, the 33-year old didn’t shy away from admitting that his team was 25-30 runs short. He attributed this to Bangladesh’s lack of aggression as India recorded a comfortable victory. Therefore, the adroit all-rounder urged his team to come hard in the final game which is to take place in Nagpur on November 11.
