As we know the Bangladesh team already have lost their first match against Scotland. The Target was 141 and Bangladesh did get managed to score 134 runs with seven wickets down. So they will be a lot of under-pressure. The other team Oman has won their first match against Papua New Guinea very comfortably. So they are full of confidence and this match can be very interesting.

Very big thing for me and my team also. We can’t believe we are playing here on our ground. It’s a big thing for people in Oman. (caught and bowled) I bowled three good length deliveries, and I put more pace on the third one, that’s what beat him. (On his idols) Pace bowler, Imran Khan is a legend. And Brett Lee is also a legend. 150-plus so I like him a lot. I played Under-19 World Cup for Pakistan, and that time I had a different action. I developed this action to get more pace.
Post Match Presentation.
Shakib Al Hasan is the Player of the Match:
Obviously, it (loss to Scotland) hurt the whole team because we were not expecting it. It was pretty tough (the team talk). Obviously, the Scotland low was hurting us. Oman played really good cricket but we held our nerve. Experience played a role. Oman were in the game for 15 overs, so credit to them. They are playing with a lot of heart, I wish them best of luck for their future games. I think this win will settle our nerves. We have another game which we have to win and we have to see what happens in the game between Oman and Scotland.
It was quite a chasable target, the way our opening stand went and we batted in the middle. But the last five-six overs didn’t go so well, we lost a lot of wickets. Credit goes to the bowlers. We were in the game 15-16 overs, we needed 50-odd runs in 36 balls, it’s not a big margin. (playing in front of home crowds) There is no pressure, it’s a boost. Sorry to the people, we couldn’t make them happy, but it’s cricket, it’s a sport so we’ll come back and fight back and make them happy. We have to see where we went wrong, come back and crack that. It’s just another game.
We’ll take this win, but I think there are a lot of areas we need to improve. I hope everyone is happy. Thanks to the crowd that came in, they expect us to win. Delivering a win for them, for the country is the most important thing. Shakib and Naim batted brilliantly, they had a good partnership and that took us to 150-plus. But we should have done better with the new ball, bowled a lot of wides. We need to see those areas and correct them. I think our death bowling was going well. In the middle part, we brought the game back. But the first six overs – batting and bowling – we need to improve.
