I think the confidence we got from winning the first game was nice. The planning and execution in this match was top-notch, as you can see from how Mayers played. There is always room for improvement. That’s one thing that we always want to keep doing, batting 100 overs whenever we bat. Kemar Roach is a legend of the game. You have to see his attitude off the field. Mayers is special. He is a match-winner. I believe in his ability. It’s good to get wins. Australia in Australia is going to be tough. Bangladesh bowlers were very good and it was tough. No matter what the team, you have to stick to your plans.
Kyle Mayers is the Player of the match and series:
We were in a bit in trouble when I came into bat and wanted to wrest back the initiative. I have made three centuries in all formats. Of course, the 200 was good but this century felt special as I wanted to do well in this series. I always want to make the batter play when I bowl. I will look to take the same positive mindset to the other formats as well
Shakib Al Hasan:
We always felt that in Test Format it was always going to be tough. We are going to play at home after a long break. We can reflect on these performances. I am not worried about batting. We need to be mentally tough. [On fast bowling] that’s the area we have improved the most in the last 3-4 years. We need to play as a team to win matches. We are a competitive team in white-ball cricket and I am sure it will be a competitive series
