We have to figure out all the nitty-gritty issues: Mahmudullah

It is no hidden fact that Bangladesh is still far behind in the T20I format and once again it has been proved after losing to Sri Lanka in both the T20Is in a humiliating way. Stand-in captain Mahmudullah Riyad  believes the fault is in their execution.

In the post match press conference, Mahmudullah said:
“The responsibility is upon every cricketer to take us forward in T20s. We have to figure out all the nitty-gritty issues by discussing with the coaches and team management. We have to face the facts and find out where we are making the mistakes. If we do this quickly, we will perform better.”

Importance of first six overs in T20s:
“The first six overs is very important in T20s. Our top order has to go hard even if we lose wickets. For our bowling unit, we have to take early wickets otherwise we won’t be able to survive in T20s. It can be a proper bouncer, yorker or slower [delivery], but you have to take wickets.:

The skipper added:
“You have to take the wickets, despite giving away 15 runs. Their opening bowler took two wickets despite going for runs. It helped them in the Powerplay.”

On giving opportunity to debutants:
“Those who got the chance are well-deserving. I think we are still looking for the right combination in T20s. I hope we can figure it out quickly, otherwise we are waiting a lot of trouble in T20s.” 1 of 1
