Post Match Presentation.
“We had an opportunity to do better than the first innings today, and we had some very promising performances from Shakib, Liton, and Mushfiq, but in the end, we could not complete the job. If you’ve lost the first 2-3 wickets, it’s very difficult to get back in the game. We have a lot of work to do at No. 1, 2, 3, and 4. Liton played very well in Chittagong and here, hope he can continue that performance.”
Sajid Khan, the player of the match:
“The captain, vice-captain, and the team trusted me, and Allah gave me this success. The plan was to go for the win, and we tried to keep it tight and bowl on one spot. The entire team gets credit for their effort.”
Abid Ali, the player of the series:
“This wasn’t a batting track, the ball was turning, both here and in the last match. Our target was to play positively and play to win. All the senior players and staff backed the players. Our effort is to play with positive body language through this World Test Championship. I got a lot of confidence from my last domestic season, and I brought that here.”
“Definitely [enjoying my bowling]. I had a feeling I should have a bowl here, and I ended up getting my first wicket. The way our batsmen played, the openers, the middle order, and even though we lost time to rain, our mindset was to dominate, and the way Sajid bowled, that brought us into the game and gave us momentum.
The fast bowlers did very well, and Alhamdulillah we won the match. The groundstaff prepared the wicket very well and covered the ground and ensured we got enough time for the result, I really appreciate their efforts. We always get confidence from victories, and these are crucial points. We always enter the ground with the mindset to win matches, and it wasn’t just about one or two players, it was the effort of all the boys.”
